Not sure what car my AOD shifter came out of but appears it has some kind of interlock and an electrical connector for gear indictor.

Is this used/needed on an 89 ?

It attaches to the steering column, by the key. It prevents you from being able to remove the key when the shifter is not in park. The older models had the button on the underside of the column you would push to remove the key.
I had swapped my AOD to a T5 so wondering what goes there on the older cars?

Stangdawg is going back to AOD. I'm pretty sure you can just disconnect the cable from the shifter carefully take the cotter pin out remove the mechanism and see if the shifter operates properly without the cable before installing.
Correct and not many videos of people swapping back to AOD

I have swapped a couple of cars back to AOD from t-5 swaps. If you need anything let me know.
I have the stock shifter I bought and I also have a brand new B&M hammer shifter and thinking of using it.
