Shifty Avanti!

Recommended Posts

Concerning Studebaker Avantis with 3 and 4 speed standard transmissions....What did the factory install over the bottom 1" (or so) of the shifter stick?....And why?

Wild guess . . .  some kind of insulation to reduce the heat transfer to the upper part of the shifter.

EXACTLY!:)....it was a plastic tube that was pushed onto the stem base of the floor shifter.....It tended to wear away.
