What is your favorite floor shifter?
Permalink  
 


I have had a few over the years, B&M Star Shifter/Mega Shifter/etc., and am going to put one in now that I have bucket seats in my Chevelle. I do want the ratchet action, gives that 4-speed feeling and helps me not miss a shift. If you have one for sale let me know that as well. Thank you.

I don't have one for sale, but before I picked the Lightning Rod setup I have, I was leaning towards a Quicksilver, possibly in a modified stock console. It's a ratcheting automatic that returns to center and resembles a booted short arm stick. I had a mega shifter in my high school Camaro and liked it. Lots of people thought it was a manual (HOW???, it has a PRNDL on it)

check out www.kilduffmachine.com for some cool options.

I always felt Hurst was the gold standard for a pedal car. For automatics, I always liked the MOPAR push button setup, can't miss gears with buttons.

I miss the B&M Pro Ratchet I had in the Chevelle prior to putting in a stock console shifter when my bucket seats went in.  

I liked it so much I had put one in the stock console in my 78 Cutlass.  

I sold mine though so can’t help you other than a recommendation.

I did pick up a B&M MegaShifter at NAPA. With my MSRA discount, $5 in points and a rebate Visa card I had it all of a sudden became very reasonable in price.

Nice choice. I like the style of B&M shifters.
