    The Hurst Autostick One. It was a bolt on shifter with solid linkage. I have one on my Th400 its a masterpiece! No other automatic shifter comes close. I have no idea why they would stop making them...
    They look as good as the shift..

    I love these 62-63 full size 421 4 Spd. Pontiacs. And really all the full size cars of that era.

    To be able to find the original car as it was raced in the 60's is amazing. I'm still looking for pictures of my my stocker from then, let alone the real car. Amazing deal.

    I seem to remember back in this thread that was tossed around back and forth and now remember that the rumor of his passing was found to be false. Sorry about that.

    That's what I thought Poncho60 but wasn't positive enough to say that.

    LB, the '57 Chevy 283 cubic inch, 220 horsepower "Power Pack" combination, as delivered, has always been accepted with either a Carter WCFB or a Rochester 4GC at the same horsepower. That option has been in "the book" for as long as I can remember. Since Farmer Dismuke interpreted rules very strictly, I suspect that both were OEM originals.

    On factory power pack (220HP) cars in 57, all stick cars and Corvettes had Carters, along with all factory air cars, for fuel line clearance of the compressor. Automatics came both ways, Carter or Rochester.

    Hear that John Mackey if you would have set the toe in correctly you could have set the NHRA National Record a half second lower than you did back then. Learn something new every day! Ha Ha.

    You know I believe everything you say f.i.57 chevynut but I worked at a Chevy dealer from '59 to '65 and I never saw an automatic 220hp power pack '57 Chevy with a Carter WCFB. And back then I was under the hood of everything that came in for service.
