Hi Alexander.
Installed my new plate yesterday and that lever now LOCKS into park - it's GREAT! It actually "clicks" into place.

Everything went together just perfectly.

My '60 had the typical '60 design with the wider oval. I don't know why Ford decided to change that detail - the narrower oval seems more secure.

thanks again for all your work on this!

You must have it posted somewhere - I just haven't stumbled across it - how much??? To zip code 81212.
BTW, I see a listing on e-Bay for this item and the graphics look SUSPICIOUSLY like they were taken from your site! Or, maybe it's YOU selling them on e-Bay???

Actually it went for $56. Obviously it is a very necessary piece.
