Core short shifter for stock knob - 1997-2004 Corvette C5 6 speed

  • $ 18900

Short throw shifter kit for OE replacement in:

  • 1997-2004 C5 Corvette - all models with 6 speed manual trans
    • See my other listings for C6 & C7 models
    • Does not fit any other vehicle
  • Stick accepts stock C5 knob
    • Also accepts any knob with 9/16"-18 thread
  • 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 shifter assembly, gasket, and installation instructions; bulk parts; no retail pkg.

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 separate listings)

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/ black oxide 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 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)
