Console shifter

I was thinking about putting a new (96-02) s-10 blazer console in my g-body el camino, my question is, will the shifter on the console hook up to a th-350?
Appreciate any help

I don't have a clue, but I'd guess a '96 is a cable-operated shifter. Most GM shifters have the detent controlled by a plate in the shifter, and then the cable is attached to the transmission.

I guess what I'm saying is that, if it doesn't just bolt right in, you should be able to make it work without too much trouble, maybe some simple bracketry on the trans. I'd guess the biggest worry would be a too-short cable.

This is all just speculation...

If it was me, i would say it isnt worth trying. Plus the indicator on the console for the blazer is more than Likely P R N OD D 2 1 (overdrive transmission). And a 350 isnt overdrive, P R N D 2 1

Lots of G-body cars came with center consoles.

Cutlass certainly comes to mind as a common one. Regals had them as well.
