Our exclusive low profile billet aluminum shifter reduces the height of your T56 Magnum at a critical place – right where the floorpan on many classic cars interferes with the transmission. As compared to the shifter supplied with the transmission, our shifter gives you an extra 0.6″ of clearance – that’s right, more than 1/2″. Along with our low profile mid-case cover (sold separately), you can now squeeze your T56 into more places without doing extensive sheetmetal clearancing.
We CNC machine the billet aluminum plate in-house and your shifter comes fully assembled with a Driveline Components short throw shifter. This particular SKU includes a shifter with a 1-3/4″ offset, meaning the shift lever can be moved forward or backwards as compared to the stock shifter location.
We use this cover and shifter setup in the Car Craft Malibu. We also use this cover and shifter setup in 1996 Impalas as this allows us to retain the factory sheetmetal front console mounting bracket; without this low profile cover and shifter shifter, that sheetmetal bracket must modified in order to keep it out of the way of the transmission.
Our shifter includes installation hardware to mount to the transmission as well as two bolts to retain your shift lever. Shift lever is sold separately. Our shifter installs using RTV silicone sealer, available separately.
We offer custom shift lever offsets, moving up to 4″ forward or backwards, and up to 2″ to either side. Please contact us for a custom offset.
