    The Competition Plus™ is the bolt-in model. Ford even used a version of the CP at the factory in 70-73.

    The Super Shifter™ will require a massive hole in the floor. Consider that for racing-only vehicles.

    When I installed the Supper Shifter 3 on my car, I only made the opening a little bigger. The shifter boot covered it just fine.

    Is there a model number, or is there just the one for 65-?? mustangs and similar models?

    Considering the SS has straight rods (excellent for racing) the entire shifter is offset nearly 4" to the left. I don't think I'd call nearly doubling the size of the hole "a little".

    All 65-73 Mustangs use the same Competition Plus model.
