It's 13 5/8 inches in total length. It has a 4 spd shift pattern on the shifter knob.

IINM it's possibly out of a 140?Or maybe a early P1800?

I don't remember what I took it out of. It was removed many, many years ago. Thanks guys!

140 with extended shifter or late 1800

Early 1800 was much sexier

It's much shorter than my 1969 142S's shifter was It had a M40 (M41?0)with OD IIRCC.. So I would guess late 140 with a M40/41?

Do these knobs slide of like the M46 & M47, or is it affixed a different way?

It's a later M40/41 140 shift lever. It is actually the one you need if you modify the tunnel and add the housing extension on a 122.

The M41 cars had the o/d switch somewhere other than on the shifter...

140 72+
With the humped transmission tunnel.
Will work on 1800 but is not correct.

That shifter is not correct for a 164. That car uses a M400 or M410 trans. Also my non overdrive 164 had a round knob. That is a 140 series shifter. It's just like the one I had in my 1974 142. It would work in a 75 240 with the M40/M41 trans but the knob isn't correct.

OK, I was going by R Salesman's pic in his Glovebox wanted thread. I sorta like the shape of that four sided tapered knob. I had forgotten about Volvo using those.

It's for 1972-early 1974 140's with M40 or M41. It also works, unlike what Lotman said above, on 1972-74 164E's with the M400/M410. Had a '73 145E and a '73 164E at the same time. Both cars used the same shifter (one car was a M40, the other, of course, was a M410). Late 1974 and 1975 cars use a snap ring to hold the shifter in instead, like on a M45/46 setup. Had a '72 142E that had a later '74 M41 box in it that used the snap ring setup. Wound up switching to a '75 M410 shifter, so I could have the OD switch in the knob, instead of on the stalk.

Cool, thanks for that info. I have a feeling I have the transmission this lever goes to somewhere. Gotta go looking for it .

Thanks for clarifying my post J. I meant not correct for early 164.
