Question

I have a hurst 4 spd shifter, not too sure what the application is?
The top fork bends to the right at about a 45 degree angle above the tail stock. I would like to install in my 68 with console, will this shifter work.Also what bends are in a stock 68 shift handle, are they the same for the Hurst shifter?
Also can any one tell me the thickness of the shifter mounting bracket, It looks fairly easy to fabricate.

rob, i believe that you can use a hurst competition plus shifter and if i'm thinking correct, there what chevy put in the camaro's. i believe they still sell them for your application. give hurst or your local speedshop a call. i'm sure you can even check with summit or jegs.
good luck,

Here is a picture of a Hurst Competition Plus on a Saginaw out of my 67 that I sold on eBay:

I forgot to take a picture of what the shifter looked like on the correct Muncie that I ended putting back in. It uses the same bracket for the Hurst on the Muncie as it does on the Saginaw (67 & 68), just different rods and levers.
Cheers!

Thumbs up

Just found a picture of the shifter with handle attached. However, the mounting angle was incorrect, because I had the wrong bracket on the muncie at the time. The shifter actually leans forward on the muncie like I showed in the previous post on the saginaw. But this does show the correct handle for a 67 or 68 with aftermarket Hurst:

Yes, I do have a console in my 67. When installed and in third gear the handle is only a fraction of an inch away from the right side of the shift plate hole. Also, the stock muncie rubber boot can be use. But it puts alot of tension on the shifter due to the lower height than the original muncie brand shifter (and bulk of the bolts that attach the handle to the shifter) and has tendancy of popping out of 4th when I'm decelerating from 100. Not that I would ever do that on the street!

Cheers again!

Hey BC thanks for the pics they helped alot.
I already have the Hurst shifter, It looks like it should work out. I may have to modify the bend to get it to work in the console. thanks again, Can't wait for April

Here is one on ebay with a week left (1/30/00). It will probably go in the $120ish range. http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI...item=242393318
