You might want to think about using the retooled MOPAR 833-A 4-speed used in some Chev/GMC trucks; that trans was redone to make 4rth gear overdrive, and Hurst does make a shifter for them.

You might want to try contacting "Little Wing" over on JalopyJournal.Com/the HAMB. She deals in a lot of discontinued and used Hurst items; she may have the mount needed for a Hurst shifter on the 319 OD trans. Butch/junior stocker.
