Take a good look at the tranny itself to identify it. A bit of creative engineering on the shifter could allow you to have reverse in pretty much position you want. What brand of shifter is on the tranny?

The tranny is a Borg Warner, which was the 4 speed available in the '78 Z28. It is likely the original one for the car. Somewhere on the tranny there should be a partial VIN stamped. It should match the VIN on the car.
