Where to find Hurst dual gate?

Where could I find a dual gate shifter kit to put in a 69? How difficult to do as such? what is a reasonable price for the complete unit?

a really good his/hers shifter will cost about 250 on e-bay. you will need to gey one for a 1968 GTO....NOT A 67. If you can find one already in a 68 console, it should fit in your 69. This was NOT an available option in 69, but can be adapted to fit.......eric

How hard will it be to do this? I mean, other than things like trim, blinkers, vent windows, rear bumbers, 68's and 69's are pretty much the same right? I've never installed one of tehse, how hard to do? I just think they are cooler than the regular shifter in the 69

The floor should be the same. you should be able to switch the consoles, then hook up the shift cable. I am not sure about the neutral safety switch, and such......E

I know this is a very old thread, but you do know that your factory 69 shifter also has a manual/ratchet mode of operation, right?

Pull it down into low, then when upshifting push it out/away from you at the same time that you're pushing it forward (like at a 45-degree angle away from your body - towards the glove compartment). It will up-shift into 2 and lock. After the up-shift, let the pressure off the shifter just a little and it will reset, ready for the 2-3 upshift. If you'll look really closely at the woodgrain on your console next to the shifter on the passenger side of the opening, you'll see 1 2 3 embossed there. That's what it's for.

It does it on a '70 too. Pretty cool.
