My father and I just bought a 72 Opel GT for me, the only problem I can't figure out how to fix is the Shifter, No matter what gear the transmission is in the shifter moves around like its in nutral. I am looking to fix it this weekend so any help you could offer would be great. Thank you all.

Joe, the shifter boot is rubber, it is held in place by the console cover and a flanged lip on the console. It is very pliable and should not give you any problem removing it. One consolation, if, because of extreme old age, it tears OGTS has replica replacements. The console is held in place with 4 spring clips, two at the rear and two midway up and possibly two screws in the front edge. It's been so long since I've had mine on. :rolleyes:
