Shifter Knob/Bracket on the Way!

I couldn't stand it. CJ was having a sale on their shifter knobs, so I went ahead and grabbed one in GHIG along with a black shifter boot nut, so it'd have a nice finished appeared. While I was at it, I skipped over to American Muscle to pick up a shifter bracket. I got a regular Barton model, since it was in stock. I've needed a bracket for a while, so it just seemed like a good time.

Also, since I ordered from both companies, we'll see who is quicker at shipping. Muhahaha.

The older one piece design. I really wanted the two piece, but couldn't justify the extra $40. If I ever seriously mod my car I'll probably get a mgw unit. This one is cheap enough I can resale without losing much. However, I'm sick of the factory bracket and need a replacement.

I have the older barton one as well and got it cheap and it is perfect. I dont think the newer design really was changed to make it shift any better but to make it a bit easier to install. It is night and day over the stock unit. Congrats!

Awesome! The Barton one piece shifter bracket is a great design, you'll love the improved shifter feel you get from this, compared to the stock set up!

Well, CJ was faster (they also pay for better tracking services it seems?), both being shipped via USPS. The jam nut is still on back order for a week, but I got my shifter ball. I just used a regular 12x1.25 nut to install it until the other arrives. It's amazing how much better you can feel the shifter actually sliding into gears with it. The factory one must me good at isolating and dampening any feel or vibrations.

I guess I can't leave well enough alone... White and GHIG just don't go well together.

American Muscle has made me sad. I ordered my Barton shifter bracket Saturday night. Sure, I understand it wouldn't be shipped until Monday. However, it didn't get shipped until Wednesday! Even now, it's still in PA floating around the USPS system. 1-3 day shipping? Guess not.

CJ, which I ordered from during the same hour, shipped on Monday and I got their package here Wednesday, using the same shipping method.

Wow that is odd. AM has always shipped me all my products on time. Must be a rare occurrence.

ive noticed that also they say "ships the same day" but out of all the parts ive ordered they have never shipped that day. But that wont stop me from getting my parts from american muscle. They are the best imo.

When ever you get that bracket let us know how it feels. I'm about to pull the trigger on either the two piece or single one any day now but can't decide.

nice job! i painted this one and it is holding up just fine. It is the leather one out of a 5.0 so the grip matches my steering wheel.

If I painted one, I'd want to put a ton of clear on it, cause it will wear through eventually, nature of the beast I suppose. Yours looks really good though!

Got my bracket on Friday, but was unable to install it (trying to borrow a friend's lift). Might happen Tuesday. Anyway, here's the pics of it from the box...

ya I did put a good couple thin coats and buffed it out. so far I have about 5000 miles on the shift knob of use and know issues.

that is the same bracket I have. I did it in 40 min using a jack and stands. the lift will make it super easy.
