That is the Hurst Billet shifter. It was aftermarket and couldnt be ordered on the car.

As for any factory shifter an aftermarket will probably be far better. Especially if its going to cost $395 to get it. Most aftermarket shifters run around $200.

we ordered the Hurst shifter... and I like that logo that someone posted... we'll probably use that logo on the back end opposite side of the decklid from the SS logo... should look pretty slick
got tequila?

It shortens up the throws and gives it a more positive feel. To mee it made it more metalic, like I was moving steel gears, instead of rubber or plastic gears. It had a nice snick-snick into the gear. I loved it.

Good thing it was my car then, because I was quite happy with the way it looked and I'd love to have one in my Camaro, seeing as the 69 Camaro was available with one.

Sleek interiors come with Tonka Truck wheels for HVAC knobs? C'mon now.
What is this, CorvetteForum Lite?

I want to try to find one like the one in the Bullitt Mustang.
It's a solid aluminium ball, has a nice feel to it.

I had T handle in my 86' and I loved it, but my car was an automatic. I don't think it will work very well on a manual, Every time i drove that car i envisioned driving a manual with a Thandle, and I think the experience would be lacking.

I kind of want the pistol grip shifter that is in our 70' challenger.
I am seriously never serious vv V vv Next order of business

Any pics on this leather ball Hurst shifter?

Yep. In agreement there!

But, keeping the same shifter in the car would be okay, I guess. I just like looking down at my current shifter and seeing that imprinted "H" on top of my leather shifter. I like that.

Will probably get the short-shifter and just use my existing Momo.

This isn't it but it's close:

I'm also looking at a Momo shift knob and boot for my Hurst STS. This is the one I'm leaning towards. Even with the little bit of leather on the knob, I'll still have to have some type of cloth in the car for those very hot days. I don't care though, because I like the look.

i think i'll just pull the stock knob out of my GMC & use it.
actually the pistol grip looks pretty mean. that might be an option for me.

This is what I have now... I might get another one just like it for the new car. It looks really good in my current car because I have white seats and gauge faces.

Probably a Hurst, but if MGW decides to make one, I'm all for it.
