What year shifter floor plate ?

I got this with my '62 and know it isn't for that year. I think it's a '63. Is that correct ?

**** I know the Manual plate is different its squarish. Yes that looks like a 63s, problem is I don't know if they used the same. Let me research and I'll post what I find.

the manual shifter is squarish with the flags, looks 1961ish, and it is located on the center floor. That console from what I know is indeed a 63. I don't know 62 like I do 63-65. I mean literally every SS from 62 that I find pics of has its shifter located on the column. Hell, my buddies did too back in the day. That's not to say that I'm wrong, I'm wrong a lot lol, but dude I hope your car is a manual if it shifts from the floor.


I just looked at your posts..... Yours is an automatic on the column. Why are you gonna cut the floor?

After more research, it is a '63 and used for both auto and manual.
This plate was in the trunk and apparently in the car at one time. There is a hole in the floor and the PO said it had a floor shifter but he took it out for a B&M Starshifter which he never installed. I'm going to sell the plate and wanted to know the correct application.
The B&M shifter doesn't use the plate and is too big to fit, or look, right in front of the console. I'm going to sell the shifter and I returned the car to column shift. I prefer the original look over the gaudy aftermarket "stuff"...
