That's cool - it's hard to find short shifters for the old style linkage!

Not that hard. Kartboy makes a gc one that fits. Its more like $100+ though.

Lol how many options you need? I just cut up my metro shifter and welded it back together. Shortened the throw by 3 inches and dropped the knob about 1.5" for free 99!

It can probably be done on our shifters as well. Pretty easy if you have a welder or you could take it to an exhaust shop and have then weld it.
