Can one of the members tell me what shift ball was originally on the '72 Muncie M20?  Is it white with 4-speed pattern embossed in the top or was it plain black.  I'm still working on a basket case LS5 and the shift ball is missing.  I know some Chevelle SS have a white ball, but how about the C3??  Thanks!!

Thanks Ben; the black shift ball with no shift pattern imprint seems to be what I'm now finding to be original on just about all C3s.  

You have a great website concerning rebuild of your '69.  Would you mind if I emailed you to discuss front body clip removal?

Thanks,

Doug

Back in 1978 my '70 M20's shift ball was plain black.

btw I am pretty sure I have a couple of those plain black shifter balls if you want one. 

all you would have to pay is shipping.

let me know if you are interested and ill go dig out the part.

"The Toy" had a solid chrome ball.  I have a dealer brochure buried away somewhere that should have an interior shot.   I'll see if I can find it.

Thanks for all the replies; your assistance is much appreciated.  I'll follow-up if I need to get one of these (sounds like the price is right).

Thanks........Doug

My 68 M-20 came with a Chrome ball, I still have my original parts.  I have seen a lot of Black ones at Carlisle but I am pretty sure other 68's I have seen all had regular Chrome.
