AFAIK there was never a Hurst shifter for Corvairs.
Back in the day every chrome handle shifter was thought by some to be a Hurst.
GM started using the chrome handles on higher model Corvairs and that instilled the memory that Hurst shifters were available.

I believe the eelco ad above shows a VW shifter.

I would bet if someone showed how to adapt some currently sold Hurst shifter with the quick shift kit for the corvair,some would go for it.
I have seen a picture of a corvair with a Hurst shifter I am sure was modified to fit.
Anyone ?

I don't know about an original hurst but I thought they repoed the hurst for the PG in the pic above.
The other pics were from a corvair accessorie book.

A few more if your into aftermarket accessories.

wow. all this time I thought that the split rear bumper was a handmade adornment. (yes...... I just fit the word adornment into my sentence).

does anybody have a pair of these in good shape that wouldn't break the bank?

There are many "homemade" sets of Cal Custom like bumpers due to the fact that the originals are so rare.

I spent years looking and often thought I would have to "make" some.

I just got my "rears" installed for this season...need to do a custom install for the fronts to make my Fitch Stone screen fit...

Hurst makes an unpolished aluminium T-handle that can be screwed on to the end
of the stock shifter shaft. Maybe this what you were thinking. B & M makes one
like it in chrome. I have one on my Monza.

I make a reengineered version of the Ansen automatic trans conversion kit. It allows the automatic shift mechanism on either EM or LM to be moved to the floor, and will make the car look exactly like a manual trans shift car. It's sold exclusively through Clark's.

This kit makes adding a Corsa dash to any LM easier, as well as simplifying a manual to automatic trans conversion. A gear indicator kit is optional. Shown are an early picture of the kit, and the Ansen instruction sheet, first page.

As to the bumperettes, a friend of mine, Vance Piper, has had a full original set on his car for decades. For those who are into movies, Vance's name occasionally appears in the credits, as he frequently works for Lucas and ILM.

Wow love the period accessories catalog. My son and I plan building the corvair cafe racer concept out of period 61-64 gear. Got to start the collecting now.
Back to the forum topic, this is the first item I have seen for a period pg floor shift. Anyone have one?
