The car currently has a console, but I don't know if it is original. It looks like the previous owner put MOST of the console together (a couple of bolts missing), so I would question how much detail this guy put into a rebuild.
I wasn't aware I was asking such a complex question (or that there were so many different combinations). I had researched the forum trying to find the answer and the one answer I kept finding was that it was on the steering column (but where on the steering column I didn't know). I've actually got an assembly manual for a 67 in electronic format, but sounds like I should buy the paper copy of the 68. Looking at the 67, it's got a wiring diagram for the backup lights, but I couldn't see which part of the steering column it was on (top, middle, bottom, etc.), since it is just a wiring diagram.
I'm putting in the Hurst (non-original) backup switch that attaches to the back of the shifter and is pushed on when you put the car into reverse. It has two connections (I assume to complete the circuit to turn on the backup lights). I guess I'll just connect two wires and run them extra long up to the dash area (while I'm doing undercar work) and wait until I get an assembly manual to connect them. I've got the steering column dropped and the speedo assembly pulled out so it would be easier now, but I can wait.
Thanks for the help.
