To those who run a hurst shifter with their toploader, what model is used. thanks
When I had my '65 Fastback, I used a Hurst Super Shifter III with the reverse T-handle to lock out Reverse when needed. can also use the Regular Super Shifter that is more street friendly.
Looked like this but was for a Ford:
Here is a regular Super Shifter:
The Competition Plus™ is the bolt-in model. Ford even used a version of the CP at the factory in 70-73.
The Super Shifter™ will require a massive hole in the floor. Consider that for racing-only vehicles.
When I installed the Supper Shifter 3 on my car, I only made the opening a little bigger. The shifter boot covered it just fine.
The Competition Plus™ is the bolt-in model.
Is there a model number, or is there just the one for 65-?? mustangs and similar models?
Considering the SS has straight rods (excellent for racing) the entire shifter is offset nearly 4" to the left. I don't think I'd call nearly doubling the size of the hole "a little".
All 65-73 Mustangs use the same Competition Plus model.
yeah +1 for the competition plus. that is what i used in my 65 fastback.
it never jamed or missed a gear . i used the 70 mustang hurst shift boot and plate and did not have to modify the opening.
