Shifter w/ chrome stick for 1997-2004 Corvette C5 6 speed



Short throw shifter kit with CHROME stick for OE replacement in:

  • 1997-2004 Chevrolet Corvette (C5) - all models with manual trans
    • See separate listings for newer models
      • Does not fit any other vehicle
  • Stick has 3/8"-16 knob thread
    • Knobs with OE 9/16"-18 thread mount will NOT FIT
  • Lower pivot cup NOT included - reuse OE or buy separately
  • Stock shifter base mounting bolts are reused; if you presently have an aftermarket shifter and do not have the stock mounting bolts, request bolts in notes at checkout

Kit includes PLAIN chrome stick #7201 (NOT a Hurst item - NO markings!), classic knob, base assembly, gasket, stick mounting hardware, console boot adapter grommet (optional), and installation instructions. The included boot grommet is not necessary in a C5 however some of the stick may be hidden and it may not look as finished without it. For best fit, top ~1" of leather console boot should be cut off (w/ scissors) to use the included boot grommet.

Throw is reduced by ~ 30%; most aftermarket Corvette shifters are too aggressive - this one has the ideal balance of effort vs distance. Knob height is same as stock. Other versions of this shifter are available (see separate listings)

This shifter is NOT a Hurst product; compared to all brands it is smaller and simpler but fits and works better. The base is built by Core Shifters using proven components inside a custom housing:

  • High-strength billet steel gear selector
  • Spherical fulcrum pivot in a spring-loaded, self-lubricating polymer socket
    • Low-friction captured design - no bias springs
    • Effort to enter reverse and 5-6 gate is minimized
    • 2-3 shift improved by reduced leverage without adding excess force
  • CNC-machined billet aluminum housing
    • Small size fits to floor boot without modification
  • Zinc-plated laser-cut steel baseplate
  • Vibration-resistant serrated flange head steel retaining bolts
