I reciently bought a 65 fairlane that had been modified from a 6 cyl 3 speed to a 302 4 speed. the transmission ID is C8AR-7008-D W1 5T73.
My question is why is my reverse possition toward me and down and not toward me and up?

Your shifter is for a mustang/cougar.

According to kevinstang:
"Early Galaxies and Fairlanes used a shifter with reverse pattern of up and over [to the left and up], while all early Mustangs (regardless of T10,Dagenham or Toploader),Cougars etc. used a shift pattern of reverse and down [to the left and down]"
