Well Magoo. The trans may be original but the shifter isn't. They all had the lockout except the automatics. It was very common for these cars to have Hurst shifters put in them. I would need more info on the trans to tell if it is original. There are a few good threads on this subject in this forum. Just do a search and use transmission as a key word. You could also just page back in the '63-'67 forum. We did the whole trans ID thing in detail about a year ago.
