Core tapered SS short shifter w/ Hurst knob for 1997-2004 Corvette C5 6 speed

  • $ 16900


Short throw shifter kit with tapered stainless steel stick for OE replacement:

  • 1997-2004 C6 Corvette - all models with 6 speed manual trans
    • See my other listings for C6 & C7 models
    • Does not fit any other vehicle
  • Stick has 3/8"-16 thread for a Hurst knob (included)
    • Knobs for C5 in OE 9/16"-18 thread 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 with payment

Kit includes a Hurst classic knob, Core Shifters base with tapered stainless steel stick, gasket, console boot adapter grommet (optional), and installation instructions. Bulk parts; no retail pkg. 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 ~ 36%; most aftermarket Corvette shifters are too aggressive - this one has the ideal balance of effort vs distance. Knob is 1" lower than stock. Other versions of this shifter are available (see my other listings):

  • Black stick for stock knob - $50 less
  • Hurst chrome stick & knob - $50 more
  • Hurst HardDrive pistol grip stick - $70 more

This shifter is NOT related to Hurst Billet Plus Corvette shifters. Compared to all brands it is smaller and simpler but fits and works better. The base is built by Core Shifters using next-generation Hurst "Billet Plus 2" components inside a custom housing to create a unique, exclusive assembly:

  • CNC-machined billet steel gear selector w/ forged upper section & black e-coat finish
  • 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 6061-T6 aluminum housing
    • Small size fits to floor boot without modification
  • Integral Hurst shifter dust seal to keep dirt out of pivot mechanism
  • Zinc-plated laser-cut steel base-plate
  • Vibration-resistant serrated flange head steel retaining bolts
  • Simple, effective, and durable
  • High quality and outstanding value!

Complete your installation with a "HURST EQUIPPED" emblem! (sold separately)
