    I need a longer shifter stick for a833. I have 1 that is 10-12 inches chrome made by Hurst. I,d like to trade for something that will swap in and that is 14+ inches. Looking for something local before I take a torch and a grinding wheel to the one I have. I,'ll post pic of what I have in the morning.

    In a seated position this shifter is hitting my leg. If my legs were normal length it wouldn't be a problem. So it's getting the chop chop smash unless I can trade for a longer one which involves less work.

    AHA, sorry about your long legs lol.

    Just FWI, I moved the shifter back about 8 inches, to between the buckets . And I brought it a little closer to where my arm falls naturally.And I raised it up.And installed a really short stick.
    And that was after I moved the seat back. And removed the rear seat altogether. And dropped the column a bit. And installed a small diameter steering wheel. And I am just under 5ft 9.
    I think these cars were built for women, cuz none have ever fit me. And 5-9 is about average height for men, isn't it?
    Be careful what you wish for; I got rid of the long factory stick because when I slipped off it, my knuckles were in the dash; and that 2-3 shift was a lean-forward and over to the right, and smash it as hard as I could. Of course this didn't help my clutch timing any, and I often missed shifts.
    Since the relocation, I have yet to miss a shift. The rev-limiter is getting lonely, not having had a visitor since 2004.
    I think my legs are a little long for my height; kindof like a dwarf, but in reverse,lol.
    Anyway, I hope you find what you need.
