In 66 I am confident, the cars could be ordered with or without. The GT's and GTA's had bucket SEats and console but you could get column shift and delete the shift and still get a console (rare) and in the standard fairlanes and Fairlane 500's you could get buckets with column shift. I own 10 of these cars. Gary. See: Fairlane Club of America.
Yeah, I've seen one '69 Cobra that had buckets and a column shift, but also a console with a floor shift delete plate. It was owned by John Huntley, the guy who runs the www.fordfairlane.com site. Beautiful car. I think he sold it on eBay though a couple months ago. It must have killed him to sell that car.
