This shifter is a very nice object on itself. Is the handle made of wood or is it fake plastic?

They are molded so I believe that it is plastic.  They do make these grips in other materials such as carbon fiber and other shades of wood.  Just an FYI they also have the old shifters used in Mustangs if you anyone is in the market for a replacement.

My 5 speed tranny was delivered today and took 4 yrs to get but I think it was worth the wait.  The shifter was moved back 6 inches and raised by about the same amount by using a dogbone plate mounted on the front mounting point to get the proper placement..  This was unique to the Roadrunners with bench seats from 1971 on.  The .70 overdrive and 4.10 rear should work well together on the freeways. All B and E body cars with bucket seats had the shifter mounted to the tailshaft either in the forward or rear spot.  imagejpeg_0.thumb.jpg.9fc7c4e0de7335489cd9b028386dd6be.jpg20190818_133112.thumb.jpg.0d627b1c550ea5e07676ea8f844ad0a4.jpg
