I believe you are correct. If I can locate the shifter and cable from my El Camino later today I could verify the fit. I know the console was sold with a bunch of interior parts years ago but I have to look to see if the shifter and cable are still around.
Any luck on this?

Can someone provide a photo of the needed clip installed? I’m not picturing what is needed.

Kinda hard to see it well, but...there it is holding the cable to the bracket.

Sorry for the delay, finally found the shifter and cable. Measurements in inches as follows:
Clip at transmission: Length- 1.25
Width- 1.186
Between Opening- .688

Clip at shifter: Length- 1.068
Width- 1.040
Between Opening- .422


Standard brake clip: Length- 1.082
Width- 1.44
Between Opening- .500


The cable for my 2004R has a retention area at .399 at the shifter, .770 at the transmission bracket

They do use two different size clips at the different mount points.

Hope this will help.

Wow. That’s some good info to know. IIRC the parts books show the same part number for either end. Just goes to show you to always check your parts.

My Turbo 350 set up in my 79 Monte Carlo has the same smaller clips on both end. The set up from the 86 El Camino is different.
Happy I saved the parts as the 2004R will eventually make its way into the 79.

Now I see what you're after. I understand being factory correct, but jinkies, make one unless you're competing in car shows where the judges are looking under the car with mirrors.

You could probably find one that will fit at your local auto parts store in the HELP section even though it might be for another application.
