Shifter

Muscle Car Review - - The Way We Were -

The orig­i­nal chrome-ball knob shifter was re­placed with a Hurst Com­pe­ti­tion Plus Shifter for the Mun­cie M20 four-speed trans­mis­sion. The bil­let T-han­dle of­fers bet­ter con­trol for hard shifts and also has a push­but­ton for the Gear Ven­dors unit. A ro­bust driv­e­line com­po­nent, the Gear Ven­dors un­der/over­drive is de­signed to han­dle as much as 1,500 hp and will eas­ily han­dle the torque pro­duced by a vin­tage mus­cle

car. It of­fers a 22 per­cent over­drive when en­gaged, turn­ing this Camaro’s 3.73 fi­nal drive into a free­way friendly 2.90:1. In ad­di­tion, the Gear Ven­dors of­fers the abil­ity to split gear ra­tios, turn­ing a Mun­cie four­speed into a six- or seven-speed. Other than a small but­ton to elec­tri­cally ac­tu­ate the unit, it is in­vis­i­ble un­til you crawl un­der­neath the ve­hi­cle, where it is mounted to the rear of the fac­tory trans­mis­sion.
