You couldn't get a tilt wheel if you had the console shift option. It was one or the other. In other words, if you found a factory console shift car, it won't have a tilt wheel. There seems to be a lot of people that didn't understand that at the time of ordering the console/buckets option, as the amount of console cars without the floor shifter seems to far outweigh the amount of cars that actually had the shifter on the floor.

Thanks. I knew that, just want a loaded car. I can add the floor shifter as I already have one from a '78 cougar or add the tilt column depending. I just want a bucket seat/console car that's loaded with T-Tops too. Thanx, Kenny/MrBlueOval.

And I'm STILL LOOKING FOR THAT RIGHT 77-79 Ford Thunderbird so keep your eyes peeled for one. Must be a t-top car(Ford called theirs a t-roof) I can pay a finders fee too if I purchase the car you found. Willing to take a higher mileage car now too prefer burgundy or black. Also prefer a Town Landau car ( silver aluminum band across the roof) or a '78 Diamond Jubilee or a '79 Heritage. 09/25/2018. pics price and location needed. please email me directly at fordaholic69@yahoo.com
