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.
