So is there any information on the Hurst shifter you can order? Just wondering if I am wasting some money?

Just wondering how it will be is all .. is it much shorter throws than stock? If MGW comes out with one, I'll probably go with them .. but since this is currently an unknown, I'd get the hurst to start off with.

I'd like the leather ball Hurst shifter like on the 4th gen. As long as I can get that, I'll be ordering it through GM. I don't want that white ball, just not my tastes. I don't think it would look right in a black interior. Again, just my tastes.

John Cox had already said you would keep the stock shifter knob and I think if anyone would know about it, it would deff. be him.

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

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.

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 kind of want the pistol grip shifter that is in our 70' challenger.
