Hurst Dual gate (His & Hers)

SO, I love them, but who doesn't? I had one in my 68 and loved it, I have missed it ever since I got rid of it. Since I am now resigned to keeping Marilyn an automatic (thank you God) I am dreaming of a dual gate for her. Cause if I am gonna do it I wanna DO IT RIGHT.

That said what's a good price for a functional dual gate with neutral safety switch and all? I have seen a few on flea bay in the 250-300 range. Worth it or can I find one lurking around that no one wants for a couple hundred or less?

Probably gonna have to pay the piper for a good one, they are a hot commodity and Hurst does not offer them anymore. there is a guy in detroit who restores them but his are closer to 500.00 on E-bay.

Most times you will at least have to rechrome the stick--$75-100 right there. Performance Years Part# RPU365 is a rebuilt ready to go H&H with the cable and top plate...lota money $525 but you are getting nice chrome the cable, and the top plate ready to go. I would call them and see what their "resto" includes! Eric

The guys name is Gary, he also restores consoles and sells on e-bay. I've spoken to him several times....seems like a stand up guy. E

Hey Ppb we are neighbors. I used a dual-gate designed for late 70's early 80's Camaro/Firebird in my 69. I had to make some spacers to raise it up to the level of the console, then I used a shifter bezel from a 67(I think) because it didn't have the exposed screw heads. It doesn't have a neutral safety switch built into it, it uses the switch in the column via the back drive linkage. It also uses the stock shift cable. The only visual difference is the shifter rod is bent like a manual shifter, not straight like the stock one. I used it for years as a daily driver and weekend drag car with no problems, I love it!
