Moving trans shifter
 
I have a 29 5 window that I need some help making it fit my 6'4" body. 3 problems, shifter location, brake pedal locating, and steering. If there was some way to electrify the shifting, i.e. put it on the dash with buttons, that would solve 2 problems. Anybody every done something like that. The steering is a Mustang II. I need power steering. What are my options? And the brake petal is through the floor, which I guess is pretty common in these cars. Can it be made to swing from the dash? THanks.

There are power racks for the MII front ends. And WILWOOD and others have dozens of swinging brake pedal/master cylinder units to choose from.

THESE folks offer a paddle shifter that mounts to the steering wheel- nothing on the trans tunnel. TCI also makes a version of a paddle shifter.

Not only are there paddle shifters($$$$) - there are cable shifters which allow you to put it almost anywhere - B&M have several that work nicely. As far as 6'4", so am I - and my car is a '31 roadster(see the AVATAR for how it was 3 years ago) with a Lokar 16" shift handle, a 6" recessed (yep, it sure is) firewall with BMW Recaro seating with OEM slides and fabricated adapters bolted to the floor. It's tight!! I have TCI IFS and Dodge Omni R&P steering but don't need power assist.
