Just reading the 71 TSM and there is no mention of forced upshifts, just says that if you select 2nd it will stay there until you upshift, but will automatically downshift to 1st as dictated bye road speed.

I'm sure I read somewhere that the column shift cars had the forced upshift from 2nd to 3rd and the console shift cars did not, but I have no idea where that came from.

The console shift cars used a different valve body than the column shift, at least the BW M-8s did. That's why the name changed to "Shift-Command" for the console shift cars -- they could be manually shifted through the gears. I think even they have a forced upshift to 3rd though, but it's at a higher rpm. Prevents engine/trans damage from over revving. Might not be in the Shift-Command models though... don't have a TSM handy.

Akimmet -- thanks for that info on Ford trannys. I wasn't aware there was an LX long case model, probably used more in trucks.

Thats correct.  The console cars used a different  manual valve spool.
