My 71 cpe has a TH 400 3 speed automatic...but shift console has no indicator (such as a fluorescent red needle) that would point to what gear the tranny's in. There is a window in console showing P R N D 2 1... just no pointer/needle. Since owning the car, I figured a red pointer must've fallen off...The detents work fine and I seldom have trouble with this...but I'm concerned about the occasional other driver(s). I recently pulled the shift console and shifter assembly...I don't see where a pointer might ever have been attached...maybe never was intended... just dunno! Neither my original owners' manual nor my AIM book seem to offer help here. Does anyone know if this car should have a "gear pointer/needle?"
