I'm going to design and fabricate my own pistol grip shifter using one of the aftermarket models as a pattern. I'll purchase the grips (carbon fiber) and lower bezel from an on-line vendor.

What I need is a good clear photo of the side view of the shifter on the bench, preferably with the grips removed. Also a caliper dimension of the beam thickness. I'll import the image as a sketch into SolidWorks, and create the 3D model. Then it's a simple task to have the arm and bracket cut in CNC, weld, chrome, assemble, and install.

Once I get this project completed, I'll make the SolidWorks CAD model available to anyone here who can use it.

Cheers!

JD

May be a tough ask unless someone has theirs off the car. Found these, some are original B Body shifters, and unsure how close they are to the modern 6 speed shifters

Yes, I thought I might get lucky and catch someone who just purchased one and hadn't put it on their car yet. Would be extra good to get a photo with the grips and lower bezel removed.

Thanks for the photos; the last one is something I can start with. I just need a profile to get the overall shape/angle correct. For the shifter interface surfaces, I can pull those directly from my current factory handle and/or the Barton I have in the car currently.

I'll keep putting the pieces together, and hopefully come up with a good CAD model that I can fabricate to.

Thanks!
