Looking for shifter help..
#1
Has anyone ever tried to fit a Hurst V matic rachet shifter into our consoles. Trying to find one that will fit without cutting up my console.

I put a B&M shifter in my console. Although i did have to notch it to get it to fit. I didnt think it was a really big deal because they repop the piece you have to notch. So if you ever want to go back to original you can. I cant get to my car to take any pics for ya right now, but I will be digging the car out this weekend if you still would like to see mine I can post some this weekend. But yes it is possible but some trimming was involed in the front of mine.

I would love to see some pics, Kevin. 30 years ago, I saw the automatic ratchet shifter in action, and it was AWESOME.

I think mine is the b&m sport ratchet shifter. Its definately fun. Much better than stock especially if you have a shift kit. It has a lockout so you cant go too far when you "slap" the shifter. I will get some pics up for you saturday or sunday.

I have the B&M megashifter but did not have the full console. I am planing on buying a humphugger console to put in to have a place to rest my arm.

Thanks for the input guys, I'm listening. I bought a hurst 1/4 stick off craigslist and soon found that if I put it so it would come thru the console it would hit the center dash cluster when going for park, so got lucky and sold it to a buddy for 10.00 profit now i'm trying again.
I've been looking at those little short ones for the newer stangs but can't find much info or measurments.

Mine is pretty close to the dash when its in park. I may have had to notch the front and back to get the full range of motion. But the rubber boot of the shifter and chrome bezel cover it .

Got a couple pics of my shifter. If you need any more let me know. Just gives you an idea on what i did. I remeber that I filled the cover in with fiberglass so the shifter boot and chrome bezel would fit nice and flat in there.
