Re: The Hurst Mystery Shifter

I never knew of the contest. I had a couple of them when I was a teenager, and I really abused them, but I never had any trouble with them. They made me a life long believer in Hurst shifters.

Re: 351 cleveland engine

probably one from an early '70s mustang with the 351 Cleveland eng. would work. you probably need to find a parts store with a real parts person, although they are getting harder to find all the time.
