*** This listing is ONLY for people doing custom installations & trans swaps.  It is not intended for any OE application (see my other listings for complete kits where available). ***

Core / Hurst short throw shifter base for T56 6 speed trans from 2005-2006 Chevy SSR roadster truck ONLY - no other models!  It only fits at the tail mount location like OE (for relocation to forward inspection port, see my other listings).

*** If you want a shifter for use in a SSR truck, please do not buy this listing - see my other listing for the complete kit. ***

I offer similar shifter bases for T56 trans sourced from Camaro / Firebird, GTO, & Viper (each of these is different), as well as direct fit bases to replace cantilevered shifters on 2008+ TR6060 models (Camaro, Challenger, CTS-V, GT500, etc).

This is a custom shifter base composed of readily available Hurst Billet Plus component set (supplied by Hurst) inside a custom housing (not produced by Hurst, but 100% made in USA).  It functions like any regular Hurst Billet Plus shifter but in a configuration Hurst does not offer.  This shifter was designed to yield about 38% throw reduction over OE.  You can mount any Hurst bolt-on stick to this base.  I sell many in my other listings.  This base includes mounting hardware, dust boot, and instructions.  It does not have stops and does not need them; all modern internal rail trans have internal stops.  However if you prefer, stops can be added for $12 more, email me to request.

Fulcrum options:

  • 2.53" fulcrum (default offered in this listing) is best for 8-10" stick length.  Lower stick mount bolt hole is 3.07" above base flange.
  • 3.03" fulcrum ($10 extra) for 10"+ stick length.  Lower stick mount bolt hole is 3.57" above base flange.
  • 3.22" fulcrum ($15 extra) for 10"+ stick length, with higher stick mounting point to fit dust boot under stick.  Lower stick mount bolt hole is 4.58" above base flange.
  • 3.66" fulcrum ($20 extra) is an option for 14"+ stick length, but stick mounts at 14 degree angle toward left.  Lower stick mount bolt hole is 5.38" above base flange.
  • For all optional fulcrums, please EMAIL PRIOR TO PURCHASE!

If you are doing a trans swap and not sure which Hurst chrome stick you need for your custom application, please see:

The Tokyo motor show 2009 review, by Phil McNamara

Wed, 21 Oct 2009

Ch–ch–ch–changes: time to face the strain, presciently sang David Bowie looking forward to the 41st Tokyo Motor Show. Since the 40th show in 2007, the car world has changed economically, politically and technologically. Even the show itself has suffered a pitiful transformation, stripped to just the Japanese firms after the European and American car makers block voted with their feet and jilted the show to save cash.

Peugeot SXC crossover concept Shanghai debut

Thu, 14 Apr 2011

The very sexy Peugeot SXC Concept It brings home how important – actually, crucial – the car market in China has become when you learn that car makers are building cars specifically for the Chinese market. Just last week we reported BMW, in collaboration with its Chinese partner Brilliance, has taken the already ‘Made for China’ LWB BMW 5-Series and turned it in to a 5-Series plug-in hybrid. A specific car for a specific market.
