    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg I picked this up at the swap meet and can't figure out who made it. Is it an Ansen for a Chevy t-10? The one stick has been heated and bent at some point. It came in the old hurst box with markings for a t-10 shifter for late 50s early 60s Chevy.

    Looks to me like a factory shifter. If there is a part number on the Hurst box, chances are that will tell you what this is from. Not a chevy, they all had reverse trigger.
     
  3. looks like 58-63 chevy T10 and they didn't have the reverse lockout .

    Did Ansen make them for Chevrolet? Are they any good?

    From memory, I'm thinking Ansen used GM shifter parts; in their conversion kits for other applications. I would agree that's a pre 1964 GM shifter probably in the box its Hurst replacement came out of.

    The box holds the take outs from an installation, the shifters are factory/stock.

    If it were me, I'd find a vintage Comp Plus and sell the stocker to a restorer.

    You could sell that to the right person looking for a stock shifter and be able to buy a new Hurst

    Are these shifters hard to find? I was hoping to make it work on a Saginaw, or do I need to find an early t10?

    There was a good reason that it was replaced with a Hurst. A Hurst shifter is much, much better than a factory one. If you go with a Hurst, it seems like the new ones are "Made In China", though. :mad::mad::mad:
    However, good used USA Made ones are easy to find.
