1983-1987 Buick Turbo Regal & 1978-1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass-
REPRODUCTION UPGRADED FLOOR SHIFTER & HANDLE
We offer this new upgraded floor shifter with or without a NOS GM grey shifter handle.
NOTE - You will need to transfer your original parts to the new handle.
This new upgraded floor shifter has several improvements over the factory original shifter. The original shifter had a steel chrome-plated handle. This was prone to rust. Also the grove at the top where the handle locks in is subject to breaking, which causes the handle to not stay in the correct position.
The new handle is stainless steel so it will not rust and it is stronger than the original steel handle. Where the shifter cable attaches to the factory pin can wear over a period of time. This pin on the new shifter is stainless and welded into place to eliminate those issues.
Buick never painted the base plate or the driveshaft. Most are now rusted. The new plate is painted. The spring for the J hook can also rust and lose tension over time. The new spring has upgraded tension for cleaner, firmer shifts. The original J rod bends over time and will not always return into alignment of the detent bracket. This was solved by increased hardened steel. The detent bracket is also subject to wear issues. The new detent bracket is made in stainless to avoid those issues.
All these improvements make for a nice upgrade that you will quickly notice each time you shift from Park to Drive.
