correct shifter for 1969
« on: July 22, 2009, 03:40:19 AM »
My original shifter is long gone, about 25 years ago I replaced it with a Hurst unit. I would like to put a close to original one back in. I have a console, so I need a good fit. I've seen two different shifter numbers. A 3128 and a 3138. Which one is correct and is there any difference between the two?

Thanks for any help on this, Rich

Rich,

Check this link and scroll down to the transmission section.

I believe the OEM shifter body is 3138 and it used a 5325 round handle.

I believe 391 7438 is the number of the current aftermarkt Hurst Competition Plus for a 69 Camaro.
This is the number for use with and without a console.

Thanks for the reply bcmiller, I still would like to know the difference between the 3128 and 3138. There's a new Hurst shifter on Ebay # 190204119312 that has a 3128 offset shifter and doesn't have stop bolts on it. It has a regular handle on it also. They say it will fit, but I would like to be sure before I spend my hard earned cash.

The 3138 shifter body was used for several OEM applications.

I took a look at that add.  I think I would give them a call and ask the questions.  It does look
like it has the correct style handle (bayonet style handle - not bolt on). 

They might have listed the wrong number in the add (they have 3128 and original was 3138)
or maybe that is just the number they are using now.   Sorry, I don't have more answers.

Something looks odd about that shifter body. Could be the angle of the picture. And the handle does not look correct. The bottom of the handle has a hole as I remember. Not sure what that knob is on the bottom of the handle.
