On the shifter, do you happen to know when Frank Arone's car was built? His shifter is silver cad: https://www.facebook.com/arone.rest...2607635594902/468578253331172/?type=3&theater For some reason I thought June 70, but am probably wrong. Lots of discussion on shifter finish in this thread: http://nastyz28.com/threads/4-speed-shifter-restoration.223286/page-2#post-2478070 Still a bit of confusion about when the transition took place from CAD to phosphate. I'm about ready to do mine. Its painted currently. I will try to paint strip it to see. Its a late March-Early April build (TT is 04B).
