Anyone using the Lokar Nostalgia Shifter. I found a Chevy 350 w/auto trans to put in my 55-1st. I like the look of the Nostalgia Shifter. Is it an easy installation?

shouldn't be any different installing than their other shifters, the only difference is the stick.

I installed one in my 37'. It was pretty easy. I had to set it at the front of the mount they sent to clear the seat. I don't know if that had something to do with it or not, but I had to cut the Lokar lever that mounted on the transmission shifter shaft and make it longer. The shifter it self is all most on top of the shift shaft. This may be why the leverage was wrong. After that little problem, it worked out great. I even mounted the stock park brake lever to the right side shifter bracket. Its a little high, but carpet and a boot over the lever and you will never know. Joe
