The 70 gt6 my dad bought in 99 or 2000 was an od car and the lever was on the left side. I copied it when I did mine. Up off, down on. Kyle.

Funny, even when you look at this right side up, I think it's mislabeled, as #26 is the turn signal control and #28 (the longer lever sticking up higher) is the overdrive lever.

FWIW... 2nd owner of a 1970 GT6+ (LHD), OD lever is on the left side of the column. Up is off, down is on.

On my 70 GT6. The switch on the left side has a mid point between the upper position and the lower position. Turn signals

The switch on the right only goes Up and Down. I've just realized their might be a Overdrive while sitting in it yesterday.

Greg beat me to it. I am the original owner of my GT6+ but no overdrive. (I was being cheap at the time). My original GT6+ manual just like the the yellow one Greg shows item 26 "overdrive switch-optional" on the left hand side of the wheel. On page 11 of said manual states "Move the lever up to engage the overdrive and down to release it." Then references page 17 on how and when to use it.

Greg, take good care of that yellow manual, they are hard to come by. There are similar ones out there but they don't say GT6 + on the cover.
