Richmond 5 speed, 56 Chevy and shifter

Does anyone know if there's a shifter available that'll work with the Richmond 5-speed in a '56 Chevy having a bench seat? I know Hurst makes a Competition Plus shifter but it's for a T-10. Model Number: 3913780.
I would think there's some combination of handle, shifter and linkage that works without me having to "cut out" a notch in the bench seat. Yeah, I know bucket seats would solve the problem but I'd rather not.

Richmond 5 speed...

Since the later Hurst shifter handles are all bolt on, you should be able to use the "hockey stick" handle for a ST10 or Muncie on a Hurst shifter for the Richmond.
Barring this, you could also weld one up from a few swap meet handles to clear the seat also.
Might also want to check with B&M for a shifter.

Hurst sells all shifter handles as seperate parts.
Go to hursts web site and look up the number.

You have to go to and click on the hurst link there.

The catalog can be down loaded for free.

A buddy of mine has the same combination you have. He fabricated a shaped shifter handle from stainless that goes foward then sweeps back.
