    Need to replace the crappy aftermarket floor shifter that was installed by previous owner. Please help me decide on which one to get or recommend one if you have had a good experience with one. Also can someone explained what it means by gear mechanism (gate vs ratchet)?

    Is this a console car? Bench or Buckets? Is the "crappy" shifter cable or rod mechanism?
    I was able to put a B&M Quicksilver in the factory console and used the factory rods and pivots instead of the cable. Worked out nice and the shifter looked good in the 66 Charger console.

    I just put this PPP Shifter with free nuetral. I needed to get this shifter because of my Aluminum rods in the motor. Looks like I might have to get another one for my 65 Light Blue dodge coronet

    forgot to tell you if you go with the free nuetral you'll need a griner valve body with free nuetral. they make it low band apply or non low band apply.

    Only thing I don't like about my Cheetah shifter is the stick is not very high - and there is no may to lengthen it. Particular issue if you have a bench seat. I have mine sitting on an aluminum base (it's under the skirt that wraps the base) that raises it about 4-5" from the tunnel and also had my bench notched out so I could move the shifter back towards me more. I would still like it to be a bit higher..
