    1956 Chevy 3100 stepside truck with SB 350 V8 & TH350 autobox SHIFTER required

    Hi a Middlesbrough guy now living in South Africa & coming to UK for Christmas through to 18 January 2020.
    I will be returning to UK for good about March 2020, however I have a right hand truck for sale that has been rebuilt from the chassis to now a road legal vehicle that I may bring with me or sell here in RSA.
    The vehicle is all steel with Jaguar front & rear suspension (bolted to chassis NOT welded) comlete with power steering and front ventilated discs etc
    I do have a problem with gear selection using the Jaguar floor shift and middle finger thick selector cable.
    Can anyone please give me advise on a supplier either new or pre-owned CHEVY TH350 FLOOR SHIFTER with cable that I can purchase whilst on my Christmas house hunting expedition.
    Cheers
    Tony

    You’re probably best off with either a lokar floor shifter I,m sure someone in blighty sells them or a sparkomatic floor shifter I,ve used them several times for pickups they,re not cable operated but very simple to install & inexpensive ,summit sells them have it shipped to Uk & pick it up when you’re there, problem with most factory style floor shifters is they are too short for a pickup unless you lengthen the stick .

    that's the lokar shifter I was talking about it bolts to transmission & the shifter comes in about 4 different lengths , down side is they're not cheap , the sparkomatic shifter is cheaper bolts to the floor & has a long shifter works good for trucks .

    this might help
    LOKAR ATS6350R2 DOUBLE BEND SHIFTER T350 $316.99 SUMMIT
    B&M BMM-75498 $182-19 SUMMIT (I,VE USED THESE FOR 55-59 CHEVY TRUCKS, THEY WORK GOOD )

    i,m sure you can find someone selling the lokar unit cheaper , these are in my latest summit catalogue & i think they sell to the uk, good luck with you,re truck project you should try to keep it , good ones at sensible prices are hard to come by over here nowadays . RAY A in sf
