It was plexiglas with side metal on my folks' '60 Bel Air, '64 Impala, and '66 Chevelle 300 Deluxe (all Powerglide of course).

Here is a shot of a '60 Bel Air for example... however the B-O-P's and Cadillacs had their indicators in the dash. I suppose when the interiors were styled, those GM vehicles that would have a huge chunk of manuals produced got the add-on shift indicators (?)
Maybe it's not broken then anyway. Thanks.
