Shifter w/ pistol grip handle for 1997-2004 Corvette C5 6 speed

Short throw shifter kit with pistol grip handle for OE replacement in:

  • 1997-2004 Chevrolet Corvette (C5) - all models with manual trans
  • 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 handle with boot adapter extension, base assembly, gasket, and installation instructions. Top ~1" of leather console boot should be cut off (w/ scissors) for best fit to handle

Throw is reduced by ~ 30%; most aftermarket Corvette shifters are too aggressive - this one has the ideal balance of effort vs distance.

The base 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 w/ hardened steel crosspin
  • 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 w/ steel wear clips
  • Zinc-plated laser-cut steel baseplate
  • Vibration-resistant serrated flange head steel retaining bolts
