Tech: Hurst Shifter Handle for Auto Mustangs

Classic Touch

Adding old-school style to your 6R80 shifter.

By SID297

The shift lever on an automatic Stang is an often forgotten piece of interior equipment.  I can count on one hand how many non-racecars a year I see with an aftermarket shift on an auto trans.  Hurst looked at that dearth in the market and saw an opportunity.  They have developed a dress-up replacement for the stock auto shift lever for the 2015-2017 6R60 equipped Mustangs in the form of their classically styled pistol grip handler.

It’s a never ending debate; who makes the best sounding V8 engine.  Could it be the new Shelby GT350 Mustang, or perhaps a 40 year old Detroit Diesel 8V92?  Perhaps you have an affinity for small-displacement European V8s or an oddball 2-stroke Johnson Outboard boat engine?  It’s a topic that once broached can lead to hours clicking the next recommended video on YouTube.
