???? Never seen one of those. Closest I have seen are the Hurst Lightning Rods. How does it function? My guess is this would be great for a drag car and nothing else. Could I fit an overdrive switch for my DN4+3? Cool find....if you are interested, I could take a look at it for you.
 
how it works, is, the trigger ring pulls up for first and second gear and is released for third and fourth. ahead for first, back for second, release trigger and ahead for third and back for fourth. reverse is the other smaller lever at the side with the main shifter in neutral. fabulous for drag racing, so much faster than an "H" pattern. never miss a shift. was okay on the street, just a matter of getting used to. parking could be a chore sometimes, doing the first - reverse back and forth. but what a blast - especially in that chevelle. :D
 
Doug, thanks for the information on how these things worked. I thought that it was an inline system but I do not think I knew about the trigger part.

Are you thinking of buying it? What transmission are you planning on running in the new drag racer?

i'll be using the th350 that's currently in the car murray. i think i will put a kilduff lightning rod shifter in it. these days it's hard to be competitive with a clutch car. back in the day though, that v-gate ramrod was the hot ticket. :D
 
Looks and sounds neat, Doug -- LOL, I can't imagine trying to teach my ex-wife how to drive with that.....definitely not for the faint of heart and easily confused types.

Thanks for 'splaining' --
