Pushbutton 727 Torqueflite Question

Hi, does anyone know if there is an aftermarket shifter (floor) available for an early aluminium 727 torqueflite ? It's the cable operated model with the pushbutton on the dash. 1964 or earlier.
Was told out of a '64 Pheonix , but can't be certain . Hurst make one but only suits the later 727's
This is 'early' type , sometimes used to be referred to as 'poor man's lenco'

'Is there anybody out there?'

Thanks fellas!



Duke

I've never seen one! But you can find a console shifter for the push button style tranny. 64 Sport Fury's and 65 Satellites had them. 65 was the last year for cable operated tranny's IIRC.

If you are going with an aftermarket shifter, why not go with a newer 727? That way you can have the new torque converters too - and get a higher stall if needed. The 2 transmissions have different pumps.

Thanks for that info, it's the kind I needed. It's hard to research stuff like that sometimes. Are those things console shifters something that is possible to find easily ? Not a chance in hell here in AUS I must admit, I haven't googled it yet or even seen an image. Might be ugly as crap for all I know.

Good lead!

Because I have an early type already, pulled from a drag car, running. Has had bell housing machined off and a scattershield beautifully fabricated from 1/4" plate steel fitted that accepts SBC block pattern. Have the tail shafts made up and high quality 5000rpm stall converter to suit. Also have the pushbutton change which I can use if I have to, but would prefer a floor shift.

Not common over here but likely available on ebay maybe. Here's some info on them for you. THose floor shifters weren't for speed shifting. The pushbutton style worked well.

I found a couple on ebay but they're asking upwards of 800 bucks. Way too much. Contact this guy. He builds old mopars.

Or search around on here.

Thanks for those contacts!
I tried to search ebay for those couple just to have a look what they look like, but can't find em? Can you send me a link for those please ?
800 is way to much, I agree, but I'd like to have a look all the same, to see the style.
You reckon the console shifter not much chop for a performance application ?
I NEED performance application for this. It's going to be a 12.5:1 high reving 383 sbc with 5000 stall . Maybe sounds like I be better off running the pushbutton ?? I got two of them, just gotta make look pretty in a case and mount somehow..

Here's the link. The price and condition of this one tells you how rare they are.
You're much better off with the push buttons compared to the console shifter. Nice thing about the cables is you can mount a push button box anywhere.

By the way, I sure like the style of your Manaro!
Saw an orange one torturing all the old folks in Dunedin NZ when we were down for a holiday 20 years ago.

Thanks mate, there's not many of em left now, very sought after now. A real, real, 'REAL'! 'fixer-up-er-a' will sell for 30 grand. Rusty shell go for fifteen. Mine, prolly $50G++. It's crazy, they're cool, but they're not THAT facking great!

This thing didn't meet reserve price and passed in at 10K...it's the least desirable model with the poorest engine/Trans options, and needs ALOT of work..

Thankyou for your efforts regarding the shifter, sounds like I be best off to work with what I got - the pushbutton- kinda cool anyways. I reckon I can make it look at home somehow with a bit of ingenuity and fabrication, cheers!

Does your push button have park? I think the ones 1961 and earlier did not have park - they used a brake drum on the tailshaft.
