Original 1970 Pistol Grip w/ shifter box
« on: September 16, 2020, 09:40:30 AM »
I recently picked up a 4 speed trans for my T/A 'vert project, and with it came an original '70 slip in pistol grip and the shifter box.  I already have a NOS bolt in style handle, so I don't really need the 70 shifter.  It is in good condition but needs to be restored.  Pics coming tonight.

What do these go for on the open market as I rarely see them for sale anymore?

If I decide to keep it, who can do a proper restoration on it?  Brewers?  Passon?

Thanks!

Erik

Got a link or contact info?     I have heard for many years of Hurst offering this service, but a bit of googling only turned up "shifterdoc.com" and they specify that they are not affiliated with Hurst.

Would like to sent the one for my Challenger in for the treatment, especially if they are rechroming the handle!

Slightly off topic, but does anyone know the part numbers for the slip-in vs. the bolt-in pistol grip handles?  I bought an NOS pistol grip handle in the late 80s or early 90s.  The part number on the box is 3467732.  At that time, I didn't know there was any difference in them over the years.

Looks like this one was originally shipped to Arrow Motors in West New York, New Jersey.  Has a UPS stamp on it dated February 1974.

That's cool.  :cheers:  IIRC, I bought this from a guy that worked at Hackensack Spring through a friend of a friend for $50.  Thought that I would eventually use it on my 70 Cuda, but after doing a bit more searching on the web it looks like the one I have is for the later bolt-in mechanism.

$50.00 for an NOS handle was a heck of a deal back then.
In the mid 80's I was paying $115.00 dealer/trade price for the NOS bolt-ins.
Part number for 1970 only slide-in handle was 2996461 ,but they went NS-1 in about 1978 and number superceded to 3467732.
