The shifter as it turns out is from a mustang II or a mid 70's granada. If I used a mustang shifter with the bent arm I couldn't get 2nd or low. I took off the woodgrain sticker, painted the insert black, found an NOS shifter handle on Ebay (black handle), polished the plastic and replaced the bushings. They also used the stock shifter rod, put in a few Z bends because it was too long, so I sectioned the rod to fit.
Here's before and after:
