64 Galaxie Swing Away Steering

Need some help with a swing away steering car. PO disabled the shift linkage from the column and changed to a console shift. I am trying to go back to column shift. Is there unique linkage for the swing away column or not? Fortunately the correct column is still in the car. TIA

Re: 64 Galaxie Swing Away Steering

The lever coming out of the transmission is different on column shift. Not sure bout the Z bar. I'm not familiar with the floor shifts only know every time I changed transmissions I had to swap the shift rod coming out of the tranny.


This is what the column shift one looks like.

Thanks for the pictures. Looks like I have the correct tranny, now I just have to see if the linkage works. I have the linkage from a non-swing away column hopefully it will work.

Re: 64 Galaxie Swing Away Steering

I never really thought about the linkage swingaway vs non-swingaway before and have only had this car for 40 yrs, never even looked at a non-swingaway car's linkage setup. Now you have me curious as to iff that makes a difference as far as the column shifting part goes. Now i'm going to have to look at mine a bit closer sometime
