My friend just bought a 67 Mustang 390 4spd. His reverse is down next to second gear. My 70 Mach is up next to first gear. Is this correct for a 67 Mustang ?

That's what I thought. The original owner sold him the car and he said that's the way it was new. Looks like a factory shifter knob with the patern shown reverse down next to second. Anyone know for sure. Thanx Ray
PS> I'm trying to win a bet!!!

Correct me if I'm wrong on this, but I think all factory Mustang 4-speeds, up through 69 had the reverse to the left and down. In 70 when they went with the Hurst shifter (Ford style linkage ) the reverse then went up.

Check with Mark at Toploaderheaven. He rebuilds these shifters and can tell you whatever you wish to know.

Mike, I'm pretty sure you are correct. My 68's 4 spd with stock shifter went down (by 2nd) for reverse, but when I put on the Hurst shifter it went to forward (near 1st) for reverse.
