Pictures of 66 Non Console 4 speed

Does any one have or have pictures of a non counsel 4 speed. Do they use that humbed chrome bezel without the floor hump like the chevelles had or do they use steel hump welded to the tunnel and a boot and chrome bezel?

Here are some pictures of 1966 Belair, Shifter appears correct, boot does not nor does the shift ring.


Here is a 1967 Wagon. Appears to be correct as came from factory in 1967.


Notice how the bezel on the 66 is on an angle was this done like this from the factory? or should they have use the floor hump to make it more flat?

Ok a Impala with a factory 4 speed and not the large chrome bezel as shown in the 67 caprice Wagon. So the 67 must be the first year for that 4 speed bezel shown in the photo? Does anyone agree with this? This appears to be the correct boot, tuff to tell about the ring but the metal ring should have been under the carpet holding the boot to the hump and a ruber/vinyl around the carpet to trim it out.

The 65-66 4 speed cars had a shifter hump added to the floor pan but I don't know if it was only on non console cars. I have seen the hump along with the shifter boot and chrome trim each go for silly money on E Bay.

I guess it wouldn't be complete without a Biscayne. The Bel Air appears to have the correct lever for the bench seat. This appears to be a hurst shifter and the wrong ball. Tuff to say about the boot or ring.

I would like to re-visit this issue. 1966 with factory four speed and bench seat. You have the boot and then the metal ring which holds the boot in place and screwed down. Is there a rubber seal that goes over the metal ring to hide the metal and screws? Anybody have a correct photo?

Another question

Just curious, I see the 66 has a 7K tach which was available for the 427 only. The 427 390HP had a 5500 red line and 425HP had a 6k red line.

My 66 has a tach, original, in the dash, but I don't recall what rpm it goes to...

1966 4-speed bench seat boot.

I think the attached is the rubber trim that goes around the metal boot retainer. Or does the boot retainer screw directly through the boot and to the floor pan? Does the attcahed boot trim then just go around the carpet?

Boot Trim

Again, we are discussing 1965-66 application only. Bench seat.

Tachs

6K tachs were used in the small blocks through 396's. The 7K tach was used in the 427's only, the 427/390 a 5500 redline and the 427/425 a 6000 redline.

Boot

Sorry but I am confused. How did we get off on red lines when the original question was in regard to shift boots?
