replace automatic shifter


Recommended Posts

Anyone else think the floor shifter in the early GTO is mickey mouse and toy looking.  I decided to change mine, since no one makes a replacement for it I made My own,  I just happened to Have a B&M Megashifter from a 1978 Camaro that a built back in the 90's,  I made it fit, but had to cut up the console, If some one else wanted to do this I would suggest using the B&M universal Mega shifter, as it has the base plate and shifter handle that I used.archive (5).zip

I know a popular replacement shifter a lot of folks like to use instead is the Chevy Horseshoe shifter from '68-72. It's still "period" correct and looks good. You can also make it a ratcheting type of shifter.

Let's face it, "spirited" automatic shifters weren't introduced until the Hurst His/Hers Dual-Gate shifter from 67-68.  So anything prior to that was shiny chrome knob you used to take you from park to reverse to drive and back.
