I have a '54 Chevy 210 kustom that I'm getting sorted out. Currently has a TH400 with a chunk of round bar attached to the detent as a "shifter". I'm pretty certain I'll convert to a 700R4 in the not too distant future. I'm the mean time, I'm trying to sort out a shifter. It would be cool if I could either use it for both or convert when I go to the overdrive. I've looked at all the usual suspects and I'm at a loss. I want something that fits the era of the car (mostly traditional custom/H.A.M.B. friendly). I've pretty much given up on a column shifter.. The Genie looks like a good candidate. I've read so many mixed reviews about the Lokar that it sounds like a bad idea. Interested in what you guys might suggest. Thank you in advance!
