I remember bookmarking a thread a while back about different types of Auto shifters on the market. Someone posted up a "TCI looking" shifter that was relatively low cost - lower than the Art Carr which I didn't win by the way. It was aluminum construction with T-handle and anodized finish.

I really don't have room for an Art Carr shifter with my current setup, I need something narrower like a B&M Pro Stick or Hurst Quarter Stick.

I considered modifying an IMCA Shifter similar to the one attached below, but not sure if I like relying on only the detents in my TH350. This brings up a good question though - the factory shifters typically did rely on the detents to select each gear.

I have a Coan Manual Reverse Valvebody so my shifter needs to be reversed.

Post up your auto shifter tech and if someone else has a link to that thread, post up too. I searched but Shifter is too vague.

Art Carr shifters can be modified to make them much smaller. Basically, you do away with the plastic case.

yup... the guts to them are pretty small....... i run an Art Carr and i love it. it's a stout mother.

the only thing i dont like about it is that it doesn't have a reverse switch for backup lights, but in a buggy it wouldn't matter

the art carr has a beefy cable, i dont know what the B&M's are?

art carr's will work with any valvebody

look in the hot rod mags (jegs, summit) they have some pretty slim sleek designs for hot rods..... Lokar is one that i am thinkin of. they are really slim. some are even made with a tall shifter like a manual in a normal truck..

seems like it's all pretty much preference, but i love my art carr.
