They are an aftermarket shifter for the tranny. Aftermarket for your car anyway. Ford put them in as std in 70+ (not positive on exact years). They are better than the Ford shifter for improved shifting feel and stronger. If it is a Hurst unit the shifter will have the name HURST on the shifter handle. You cannot miss it.

In the 60's and early 70's, Hurst was the shifter for street performance or muscle cars. Compared to the slushbox shifters of the time (and Ford had some of the worst), Hurst shifters had short, tight throws with good shift gate feel.
