Ok thanks for the Info on the side lever and input shaft deal.
NOS Hurst Ramrod in the 57, not the rarest but so much fun.
Eelco t10 4speed
A few sparkomatics
A hurst store display
And a hurst golden shifter award trophy
Sorry I took so long to look for your missing pieces..
I thought I'd have all of it, but I am missing the lower horizontal linkage rod. I must have a pic saved on what that looks like and it should be simple to make.
I am pretty sure I have the rest of what yours needs, but the mounting bracket is marked Olds. The bracket is the early cast brass type. I was told they were prone to breaking, and this one was repaired. I also have the main horizontal linkage with the arm that clamps to the shaft on the side of trans. Also have the crazy bell crank and linkage piece.
PM if you want to buy or maybe sell.
i have a hurst floor shifter 1940-48 ford/merc in like new cond...''
Wrong place for ad for sale?
Read the rest of the thread please. I showed pics of my Ansen and wanted to know what was missing and if anyone had the rest of it available. That conversation will be continued via PM, but in the interest of seeing a complete assembly of a rare shifter this seemed like a good place to share pics and info.
Just got the handle, not sure if they actually made a shifter. I know they made chrome rims, got some rocket centre caps
IMHO best shifter ever made...........
Bill Jenkins used them for a while.
MFG. in Portland Or.
my buddy has one of those hurst display setups!
Chris, you don't happen to have another shifter handle or any spare parts for that Ansen Selector Shifter do you?? I have one that could use some assistance that came off of a slant pan, but I would like to mount it on a flat pan if I could. The former owner thought he would re engineer it by cutting off the shifter handle.....
Here's my Ansen Selector Shifter...
Bought this Mr Gasket V gate. Week later I bought a Doug Nash 4+1 with a Long VGate on it. I told my wife I was going to mount the MrG on my chair in the living room lol
Anyone else with an Ansen shifter stick, cut off like this one, I am looking to buy one.
I wouldn't say they are rare,but I've never come across a shifter that works or feels quite as good as a Comp plus...

If they were good enough for Bill Ireland they were good enough for me. Simple as that.
foxcraft nos for Buick selector trans
Well, I was lucky enough to be able to purchase a couple of boxes of parts for my Ansen selector shifters, I am going to use these as automatic shifters since the base shifter is really an early Corvette shifter, and were automatic or stick shift. Here's how my two turned out... The top one is made up from the bracket in the picture above on my first post about these shifters.
I also found this Hurst Hydro gate shifter nos in the box. I am now lucky enough to own 3 of these shifters....
A friend asked me to do this to a Muncie 4-spd shifter so that he could sit on the sofa and shift away the hours.
Here's what I came up with. He added a flat piece of steel as an anchor plate under the front of the sofa.
The short rods are 3/8" Gr 5 bolts with grooves cut in them for "neutral". Springs and balls provide detents to keep the shifter in only 1 gear.
There are O-rings on either end of them to act as cushions. Reverse rod is similar.
Ok, here's a couple more that I have guys, this series 60 shifter is an early one, check out the A-100 style knob and the decal on the box.
And this one might be the rarest shifter in the thread, you guys be the judge, it's an Art Carr Nifty Shifter, it uses a Dodge
A-100 push button mechanism and a custom faceplate and housing. The only other one I have seen a picture of did not have the Art Carr cast into the faceplate. I got this one out of a Vega Funny Car along with the Clutchflite it was connected to. The holes in the housing were for a line lock switch that was broken.
Mutant - Quite the collection you have there! On the previous page on this thread, Jazz1 posted a ''Rocket'' shift handle. Looks suspiciously like a Hurst. Here's one that also looks like a Hurst, however it seems to be for Mature Audiences.
Thanks for the like on all that chevy57dude, looks like you have a good collection too, I don't know what to make of that M/A handle, maybe Mario Andretti? I had a pair of Keystones that were sold through Sears that had a different cap on them, I will have to look for the pictures, but it was relation to 500 style racing, probably indy stuff.
Nicely done, that is a real collectors item in the 64-67 Chevy restoration crowd, at one time I had a bunch of the various shifter assemblies plus misc. parts.
I'm not collecting shifters but here is a Muncie shifter specifically for the 66/67 Nova SS.
Considered one of the hardest OEM Chevy shifters there are to find, it requires a very odd shaped handle to fit correctly. A wee bit out of being HAMB friendly, this is for my 67.
You beat me to the punch! This is probably the rarest of any big name shifter ever made. Hurst made it to control the legendary old cast iron GM Hydramatic that started the automatic racing transmission trend. There was a 2 page infomercial in Car Craft magazine in the mid 60s and it looked like this unit would be a big seller. However that was when the Turbo350 and 400, C4 and C6 and Torqflytes were emerging as better, more available alternatives to the Hydro so it never got produced in quantity. In fact, I have heard only about 6 were ever made so your three might be the only ones left in existence! I am jealous.
I had one of the Hurst Hydro Gate shifters also; new, but missing some parts. I've heard "14" were made (???). I think those are just old wives tales of how many were actually made. The number is probably fairly low, but the numbers have to be in at least the hundreds. Oh, and I GAVE mine away when I gave ALL my Hydro stuff away some 15 years ago, including two complete transmissions, one a B & M Hydro Stick. I still regret doing that to this day! What I find odd about the Hydro Gate shifter, was the impressive quality of the unit, but then they made this curved piece of aluminum and decals to be used as the display for what gear the shifter/trans was in. Hockey!
I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
Just a FYI guys; there's a NOS, Hurst Auto Stick 1, complete and in the original box, on that auction site we all know and love, for $1500.00!!!!!
