Hurst Shifter

I almost ordered the Hurst shifter until I realized that, cosmetically, it might look different from the stock shifter. I like the leather ball, etc. I was more interested in the performance upgrade aspect of it.

Anybody know what the Hurst looks like?

If it looks considerably different, I'm sure the stock shifting characteristics will be just fine!

The Hurst will not come with a ball. You can use the stock leather ball with the hurst.

If we can keep the stock leather ball, then I will keep the shifter on my order. I liked the plain leather shifter in my T/A years ago...I had a b&m in that car but kept that same old stock knob....Hopefully this is true!

This is John Cox from GM Accessories and I wanted to confirm that you will keep the stock shift knob when you order a Hurst Shifter.

John, this is a threaded shifter that accepts most any threaded handle or ball, is that right? But it will be shipped with factory leather ball installed?

Good stuff. Short shifter with stock look. I hate the idea of a white ball shifter in what is otherwise a sleek looking interior.

Exclamation Question for FbodFather or CamaroScotty

Will the Hurst Short Throw Shifter come with a white, black, or leather wrapped ball? I know this might have been mentioned but i would rather hear it from one of these guys. Thanks

Looks like it's going to be white.

Do a search. I think John answered this at some point and he is about as official as it gets. Until you find it, it comes with the white hurst ball but you can install whatever knob you want.

EDIT:^^^^or that works too.

I'm pretty sure the question was answered in one of those Hurst threads. Think it was possible that we were going to keep the leather wrapped shifter. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's what Johnny said in our forum. Better yet....if we do a search.....

There ya have it.

And, with that, I'm going to merge the threads since this is a repeat topic of the previous Hurst shifter thread.

Thanks!!

Well, with the Hurst knob available with the stock leather wrapping, does this mean we can do visa-versa with a stock knob? Or, is it molded and constructed from the factory as one non-removable piece?

So we can appreciate what Johnny said, and the thread says his word is as official as anything else here, but Rodrunner's picture clearly shows the retro white plastic ball. And the website is gmhightechperformance.com. Is that website/picture not reliable?

Personally, I wish the Hurst option came totally old school, with the chrome blade Hurst-engraved handle and the white or black ball embossed with the shift pattern.

Old School (factory) Hurst shifter was round stick with Hurst on the side with a smooth chrome ball on console equipped cars OR you got a black ball with the shift pattern on it and a chrome underside if you did not get the console.

Aftermarket setup was flat stick and white ball.

The white ball would look totaly out of place in a new Camaro. I bet some people will still do it.

Not in my 1971 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 W-30. The "Sports Console" package could be ordered with a Hurst Competition Plus 4-speed shifter, and it was a chrome blade handle, not round. The ball was black plastic with the shift pattern embossed in white.

The Camaro could have been different, so you may be correct on that.

For those of us who do want something different, are the shift knobs interchangeable? I want a t-handle.

I'm confused...What exactly am I getting if I order the hurst short throw shifter option? Can I specify if I want the white ball or leather wrapped stock knob?

How difficult is it to change shifters? I like the Hurst shifter, but did not order it with the car because I want to get a feel for the stock shifter first.

the mustang hurst shifter is 50% shorter in throw and a bit taller... so there's at least a referance.


and i've got a question, how much harder is it to shift with these shifters? i understand the throw is being cut in half so the effort to move it would be double if the underpinnings stayed the same but with a bit of height the leverage would be greater so the effort would be reduced to 50% more effort.

just wondering, i dont see it being an issue for me as i've got large arms but good to know none the less from you who have had experience.
