Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
Has very small blemishes in chrome around the shift stem opening. May or may not have the rear clip in place. You will see this same part in Mustang catalogs for $125.00. The only difference between Mustang and Cougar is that the Cougar has holes drilled in it for the pad that lays on top of it. Not for use with the 1968 standard console.
