Being as I didn't want to spend the $$$ for a Hurst short throw shifter and some more $$ to fix the "O" ring issue I opt'd for the Mopar Short Throw shifter from Mopar Super Center $108 and S/H.

Before



After



I will post the How To in the DIY section.

Is it truly a shorter throw vs. the stock shifter?

The pistol grip shifter was ok but just didn't feel right.

I guess I am old school after years of thrashing a Munci 4 speed in my 65 Chevy Impala SS.

The shifter is about 1" shorter than the stock shifter, has 4.5:1 lever ratio and if feels great. It is smooth and does not take any more effort that the stock one.

The Mopar Short Shift is a great option, we have many happy customers running them

Quick Question..

I am fond of the T-Handle, can the ball on this shifter be changed out?

According to the description, "3/8-16 THREADED SHIFTER KNOB" it should be removable.

Excellent shifter, easy install, took a litte to get it postioned right... over all very happy with the shifter, 20% shorter in shifts.

looks nice. There is no O-ring issue with the Hurst shifter though. That has long since passed. I like the mopar knob on there though
