  2. they should be the same, but be sure you get one that does not have brackets that move it back from the bolt holes
    a little enginuity is needed, mount arms down on trans , hook up linkage after mounting
    CAUTION FABRICATION MAY BE REQUIRED IF :cool: using newer than antique parts
    surely you should be able to cut weld drill and tap and this will fit:D

    The only real difference between a Hurst shifter for a '55 Chevy and for a '51 is the mounting bracket. If you can't find anything that will work, I can give you a picture of a proper '49-'54 trans shifter bracket.

    National Chevy Association sells a floor shifter for 49-54 Chevy's that doesn't require modifications. Not sure what quality is like but I have been thinking about getting it for my car. I sure would like to find a old Hurst though!
