Shifter Modification
« on: February 06, 2019, 03:05:45 AM »
All,

I am looking to find the best shifter to upgrade to. Looking at a B&M Quicksilver or Mega shifter. I have a '67 console. Looks like I will have to modify a shift plate no matter what I do. Any recommendations as to the best shifter to start with?

Understand and agree... not having the original engine, we have built this one up a bit. Will keep the original shifter but was wondering what options I could find for a ratchet shifter for when I occassionally find myself on a track and want to have a bit more fun manually shifting it. Anything out there that could provide this while keeping my original shifter handle?
