    Hi all. Just purchased a 72 Duster with the factory 340 and the A833 4 speed transmission. The previous owner converted the shifter to the pistol grip shifter. I believe it was done correctly but to do some troubleshooting i'm trying to familiarize myself with this modification.

    If i were going to start over and do a fresh install of this pistol grip, what parts and linkages would i use with the A833?

    Thanks,

    Paul

            Thé shifter, linkage etc are all the same. Just have to use 1971-74 B body bench seat pistol grip handle. Also use corresponding boot.

              The one in your picture is the 71-74 B-body bench handle.
              You have got the set up that works best in a A-body, as philcollins noted above.

                  No, it didn't. It came in from Arizona. It's the best looking Duster i've ever seen. The previous owner did a spectacular job on this vehicle.

                        It's a 72, 440, 4-SPD car, meticulously maintained. I've had her about 7 years now. P1010002 GTX_LG_2000px.JPG IMG_3598_2000px.JPG P1010014_2000px_2000px.JPG IMG_3497_2000px.JPG
