What you see before you is the one component we are missing to complete the restoration. It is the gear shift selector box that is bolted to the actual gearbox, the linkage you see on one side is the connection between this component and the second drivers gear shift lever. This one belongs to a collector in Italy who wants 3000 Euros for it?! For this kind of money we said it must be wrapped in grease paper fresh from the factory. In any event 3000 Euros is 3 quarters of the restoration budget so it was decided that from these images we could probably be able to manufacture the component ourselves. 
Take note of the very bad condition of this item. 
Here you can see the selector fork, the basic design doesn't look too complicated. 
Notice the badly pitted shaft, there is no way this shaft could be used as is and would probably have to be remade anyway because of this.
