    It took a while but I finally got the A body shift handle to work on a E body slap stick shifter assembly.
    It takes modifying the pivot point for the E body shift and adapting the shifter cable from the A body shifter and making a new metal shift rod to fit the E body shifter assembly.
    It also takes modifying the shift rod from the stock A body shifter making it line up with the modified E body shift point.
    The only thing left is to go to the track and try it out.

      You might just have a new business on your hands if it works well and people want these. I may want one for my sons car if it works like a factory piece, and your interested. I may be able to supply a B/E body shifter for the conversion.
