Need help with Hurst shifter I.D.

I have an old Hurst Auto Stick shifter with the number 755C on the base of the welded-on stick. Anyone have an old Hurst shifter catalog that can help me identify what this shifter works with? The mounting bracket has been cut with an oxy-acet torch, but other than that it's probably usable. I'm kinda hoping it's meant for a Powerglide, the detents seem to fit that pattern, at least moreso than a TH350/400. Thanks.

Shifter I.D.

Well, I don't have a scanner or digital camera, so posting is'nt possible. This is the shifter that "looks" like a stick shift floor shifter. It even has the Hurst logo on the stick. It's a gated shifter with well defined detents that "click" into gear(s). It's also mechanical, no cable, and is'nt cheap like the Indy shifters. I think when they first came out they called them "Auto Stick" shifters. I also think they came in the automatic transmission equipped Baldwin/Yenko type cars. They go real fast on E-Bay, and usually bring a pretty good price. Still hoping someone has an old Hurst shifter catalog. Thanks.

It fits, it works!!!

Well, I finally had some time today to play around with this shifter, and try to get it to fit/work on both a Powerglide AND a TH350. It's already been "modified" by someone, and by making a support/mount for it, it looks to fit the TH350 best. The spring loaded detents click right into the appropriate gears of the TH350. This is actually a nice shifter, Hurst never should have quit making them. I bought the thing, and was told it was for a Powerglide, but that just is'nt the case. The radius of the shifter is 4 1/8", so I made the lever for the trans 1/2 of that, and it works great. Now to fab up a park/neutral safety switch. I've been looking for one of these shifters for a few years now, and they either want a bunch of coin for them, or they're missing too many pieces. Now, if I can just find the "zig-zag" pattern shifter knob to go with it. Thanks guys.
