Default Fut Short Throw Shifter

Application: 86-90 G1 Legend 5 Speed Manual Transmissions
Contact Person: Fut

Back in the late 80's, it seems that the majority of the G1 Legend's original owners opted for the optional automatic transmission. Of course to see the automatic in its hey-day, its easy to understand why. Four speeds; smooth, electronically controled shifts; run by its own independent TCU; and an all electric Sport Shift mode. It was definitely ahead of its time.

Then there's the rest of us who were graced with the more traditional, hydraulic clucth, five speed manual transmission. She came with a leather shifter booth, a shift stabilizer, a jewled pattern insert, and generous gear ratios. However the throw was... let's just say it was quite long. Fast forward... now there's a short shifter for G1 Legends.

This shifter has been precision made to retain stock height and comfort.

Installation is fairly straight-forward, albeit a little difficult due to the G1's already cramped arrangement. But even a novice DIY'er with moderate skills and basic tools should be able to handle this job on their own.

Installing this shifter will reduce your shift throw to roughly 1 inch allowing short, crisp, and precise shifting!

I'd recommend this to any 5-speeder who's looking for that sporty feeling when running through the gears...






Contact Fut for info on how to obtain one of these...
