I have a 64 Chevy II originally equipped with a 3 OTT & 194 eng that I want to install a 4 spd that I took from a Pontiac Astra like a Vega style car. the 4 spd has a tall 1st gear that I like, my Vega wound up to 40 mph be for time to shift. This also will be great for my future V8 install. ***I am wondering if I can still retain my Bench seat***. The 4 spd is the same length as the 3 spd so no problems there drive shaft fits also. I can't find the shifter lever & linkage to compare the two shift lever positions. I have it but its MIA. Cutting the floor & welding the new floor shift hump in no problem there ether. Just would like to keep the bench seat. Any one out there came across same problem??? thanks in advance, Jay

A bench seat shifter will look like a big letter "C".

It attaches to the shifter under the front edge of the seat runs out about six inches and then bends ninety degrees straight up after about a foot or so it bends again to come back towards the seat. I had two different Hurst shifters with my 427 powered '55 Chevy 150 coupes that had a bench seat (one solid orange painted car whose seat was covered in black Naugahyde that often left blisters when I got in the car).

I would like to use the original style finger lift up lock out lever that the original shift lever has. Could this be gotten from a after market co, your big "C" description for the bench type lever?

Thanks I'll have to look into that for fitment issues. Finely found the shifter & linkage & will put together to see how it mounts to the trans or wear ever/ how it mounts
