Does anyone know if a 4 speed console will work for a 3 speed? I was looking at a pic of a 4 speed and the shifter looks to be a different shape than mine. Anyone add a console to a 3 speed? The pic is mine. the other would not upload.
Yes, consoles were the same. The 4 speed stick is much straighter than the stick in your photo. Your stick looks original, so the shifter MAY have been different with a console-equipped car. You might have clearance issues with the bend in that stick......
The schematic guru strikes again. Thanks Gtojunior, That's what is the difference in the shifters. Now I would be interested if anyone has a console with the straighter(#2) of the two shifters. Otherwise I am guessing I could change the shifter bar only. Would that be possible?
I ordered my 67 GTO with the Strato-Back bench seat and a 4-speed. In the early 80's I stored the bench seat and found a set of '67 buckets at Pick-A-Part and purchased a 4-speed console from a vendor at the Pomona, CA swap meet. Never bothered to change the shift handle and it still cleared the console, but was within fractions of an inch of clipping the chrome. A bucket seat shift handle should have tons of room. I'm just about ready to get the car back on the road after the conversion to the TKO-600 trans and Dana 60 rear end, and kept the bench seat shift handle with the conversion. Very short shift pattern on the Tremec and the handle doesn't come close to the edge. We did slide the console back some after taking the picture and the handle is centered now.
