Who has an assembly manual to tell me if the '68 EC SS396/350 w/M21 is supposed to be a Muncie or a Hurst shifter?

Getting down to some final negotations on a real nice specimen and the doc's I have do not spell out which shifter came in it from the factory.

From the factory, I believe you will find that the shifters as well as the transmissions were Muncie. Some dealers would for a fee, installed Hurst shifters as the Muncie shifters were less than ideal. If your transmission is a four speed Muncie, you can bet that the shifter was also... Good Luck

Thanks Rix. :)

I thought that was the case but from what I remember I saw a few that came from the factory (or what I thought was a factory installed) with Hearst shifters.

I probably saw them after the dealer received them and installed the Hreast shifters.

I have a 69 Manual. There are pictures of the Muncie/Saginaw shifter and no mention of a Hurst. I believe if it had a Muncie trans you got "Muncie" on the handle and Sag trans cars got a plain handle.
