Horseshoe shifter location

I did a lot of searching, but couldn't come up with the answer.

I am installing the Horseshoe shifter in my car. New floor--no dimples. I think I have it in the right location, but it is not centered in the car. Its 5/8 inch closer to the drivers side, measured with no interior to the metal on the door. It would make sense if it is supposed to be. Just want to make sure I am Correct before I start the console locating. Shifter would be easy to move if I need to.

If someone can check their shifter, or console and let me know if theirs is centered in the car, I would appreciate it.

I had the same problem as you. I used both of the drawings below to lay it out and test fitted it with the center console before drilling any holes.

Re: Horseshoe shifter location

Your signature has no details on your ride - year, options etc so going to assume 1969.

Not sure I have an automatic template in the library yet but Dean Guccione has some decent pictures on his restoration build site from ten years ago 1969 L-78 Big Block Project Camaro

The AIM is not so helpful as it says mount on the tunnel using the existing dimples. I harvested a few photos from old threads here and at CRG below. Maybe one will get you the info you need but I suspect we need someone to give us measured drawings and a template in order to add it to the reference library since most of the photos in old threads are dead links to off shore photo shares.

Sorry Brian...my car is a 68 Convertible. I will upload my attachments from my dropbox account to this site so that the links won't be broken in the future. I'm sure i have more pics of my install as well but will have to look for them.
