Not sure if O.E.M. is Hurst, but it should be black chrome on O.E.M shifter with chrome and a pull up lock out for reverse.

The OEM shifter was not Hurst but some folks installed a Hurst shifter later on.

Black chrome, round knob, no inscriptions/numbers. GM shifter that bolts to the trans crossmember, not the trans.

I have a Hurst shifter installed in my 78. Its a slap shift to reverse. No spring pull up like the original. It has 3/8-16 male thread pattern. Hope that helps you? Good luck. Rossdog
