    yes. Console was an option for all cars and if you did not option the console you got a column shift. There were no floor shift automatic shifters without the console unlike the manual transmissions. There aren't many Z28's like this, but known examples exist.

    Yes for sure in 1971 and probably 1970 also. I bought my Z new in 1971 and it came standard with column shifter if you ordered the optional TH400. Console shifter was optional. Being poor back then, I settled for the column shifter.
