A console shifter was probably optional. Sounds like a plain jane base model. Before you decide to change it, I wouldn't. It's probably a rare thing to see on one of those! Just my opinion. Hope that helps! Jim

Guessing at the questions intent I would say someone did some swapping and left the old steering column in place.
