They have old gen stuff on other sites (not their manufacture site) but I don't believe it uses the flat-stick style, but instead uses your OG shift knob and thread system. I got mine this way and saved a pretty penny, the only actual difference is the way it adjusts (both are adjustable in the same axis') and the fact that it doesn't have the flat stick for the knob to attach to. I attached a pic of the Old Gen version.Because they have a good product...
What was your impression so far? Did you do the full shift and shaft assembly? Is it really worlds away from stock shifter? I don't mind the shifter too much in mine. Definitely has a little bit of play, but nothing to miss shifts.I ordered one 2 weeks ago through American Muscle. It was the same price as what was on the Barton website. Was delivered to my house 3 days later and installed the next day. If you are concerned, maybe order through a Vendor that you know is there to pick up the phone.
@Beast707 can help he installed his..Those who still remember:
Which way the rubber block at the back of the shifter should be installed? The video on the Barton website shows the block mounted bolts facing forward, but most Youtube installation videos show the block mounted bolts facing backwards. View attachment 570875 View attachment 570876
Someone on YouTube said that he had noises/rattles until he put it the right way (but it wasn't clear what it was). Perhaps it (bolts?) may hit something when the assembly shakes?Either way, it shouldn't matter but to be safe put whichever sticks out further towards the back. It wont contact anything so clearance to the shifter is the main thing to look at.
