This set up was replaced in the fall of 2016 with a 5 speed Hurst shifter
I installed a B&M Sport Shifter, built a console and removed the column shifter.
This is a collar off of a 3 speed column shift car. I cut off the neck, stuck a washer in the hole and filled the hole with JB Weld
A few coats of body filler, and some light sanding.
A few coats of primer, no one will ever know it was a column shift.
The console roughed out in cardboard.
Wood frame with the stereo and shifter boot mounted.
Under the dash cup holder
Column painted black
