1967 2-speed AT shifter rebuild or replace sources
« on: January 05, 2017, 09:11:56 PM »
The 2-speed T-handled AT shifter in my '67 326 Firebird is really sloppy and loose. The transmission shifts fine, but you have to search for "drive"or"reverse" as the console indicators don't line up with the transmission gear engagement. My mechanic says the tranny and linkage is tight, but the shifter is worn out, beyond replacing the bushings. Looking for a rebuilt or new replacement for the shifter. Any advice would be appreciated.

There's people online that have NOS shifters but they are going to be pricey.  I would buy one from Classic Industries and keep the OEM one for posterity. The aftermarket shifters like B&M are sloppy also in my opinion but the OEM style Classic Industries shifters are OK.
