        Comments about Hurst Pro-Matic 2 Ratchet Shifter:

        This is a great shifter, the ratchet action is a must have for high performance. This is the second time I've bought this type of shifter, and will definitely but it again in the future. The only problem I had was 1 of the screws for the cover wasn't quite long enough for my installation, but .15 cent at the hardware store fixed that. Hurst is a really good shifter, i like it alot more than B&M, not that B&M's are bad, but i think Hurst is more iconic to muscle car performance. The last pro matic i bought was about 10 years ago, i noticed alot of upgrades that made this pro matic better. Everything is powder coated when the old one was bare steel.

                  The Hurst shifter pictured is for an automatic transmission. To verify if this is the correct part for your vehicle I recommend visiting your local Advance Auto Parts store and speaking with an employee there.
