I'm trying to finish the restoration on my 73 coupe. I'm missing the shift linkage that connects the shift lever to the transmission lever. The car has a 302 engine with the C4 automatic transmission. Does anybody have a picture of what this looks like? Preferably an installed picture would be very helpful.

Thanks.

Looked in the Master Parts Catalog (illustrations portion) for you. HORRIBLE.
Wouldn't help even if you had a pretty good idea beforehand....
It was a generic diagram shot (67-72) for C6 transmissions and an even worse version with less detail for C4.

Sorry.

I don't know if 73 is different, but this is what my 67 looks like. Part number C7ZA-7326-B

I can understand why Ford would use a common image for all of them. Even side-by-side they tend to look alike. You could probably use a 67-68 repro rod, with a little tweaking.

Would the Lokar linkages help? Check out that site
I contacted Lokar and they don't carry it. I would have thought if anybody had something they would be it.

I found a local used mustang supplier and he gave me 7-8 different ones to try out. I left them at the shop, hopefully one of them will fit. Here's the progress of the car with the engine finally installed.

Most Ford shift linkage rods have an identification number stamped into them. The 71-73 C-4 shift rod is D1ZA-7340-CA and is 18 1/2" long. There's a pic of it in the post below.
