Larry, I think it would be a great idea to add this thread to the FAQ area and updated as needed as time goes by.

Early Cobras were powered by Ford 260 cu. in V-8 with BW t-10 4 spd. Used Ford shifter with handle installed backward

The small block cars did use the T-10 but didn't use the reversed, long handled shifter like the later BB/Toploader equipped cars.
