looking over the manual trans. Looks like I'm going to need shift levers, linkages, shift mechanism with mounting bracket, shift handle with grips etc. Also need lockout linkages that go to steering column.

The Hardtop (23) armrest bases are chrome. The Coupe (21) armrest bases were color keyed unless you paid extra for the A87 Road Runner Décor Group which was only available on the Coupe (21) cars. This décor group got you chrome armrest bases, and several other upgrades which came standard on the Hardtop (23).
Factory Options being added to the car
Air Grabber Hood
Passenger Side Mirror
Extra Heavy Duty Suspension (Hemi Suspension) (and then some)
I enjoy the 3 speaker dash, but the original 8 track was missing, so I'll use a reproduction 1970 Plymouth AM/FM with modern internals.
Power Front Disc Brakes (11.75 inch, so actually larger than factory) The car originally had manual drum brakes on all four corners.
I'm going to run 15 inch Rallye wheels. I've no idea what wheels the car originally had, but they were probably 14 inch.
High Capacity fan blade which pulls more air at all RPM.
I'm going to run Pertronix electronic ignition inside the distributor. I want electronic ignition, but these cars never had it, so it will remain mostly hidden inside the distributor.
The original antenna was also missing. I'll use a power antenna with a stock bezel so that it looks close to original, but a car cover will be easy to use. Power Antennas that use stock bezels are made by Retro Sound. I ordered one through Classic Industries.
Radial Tires and improved suspension
