Is that a M-truck shifter maybe? or is the car a taxicab with the top shifter trans? It does look like a real top shift 3-speed anyway.

The guy says in the ad something about it possibly being a taxicab, except it's a 2-door[}:)].

I guess with Studebaker, anything is possible.

Nate,

The M series trucks had a straight shifter, I know my '57 Transtar with a 5 speed has the offset one like pictured.

The Taxi accessory floor shift was mounted on the side of the transmission, similar to the aftermarket type. It had a rather larger boot and a straighter shift bar.

What looks odd to me, is that there is no type of factory shift-collar around the steering column.

Looks like a Studebaker truck tranny to me.
Dont forget, 65-66 Studebakers used an bellhousing designed to mate the McKinnon(Chevie)engines to Studebakers vast stock of Borg Warner trannies, including automatics.



Hey Mark,
Back in the late thirty's and early forty's , my grandfather had a taxi in New Albany and he used two door cars, which according to my Dad was common back then. Unfortunately , Grandpa used a 38 then 40 Chevrolets.

That complete shifter is shown in the '59-'64 parts book. Although it isn't illustrated in the '65-'66 parts book, the part numbers ARE in the index, so it was apparently still available.

I'm thinking about bidding on it. How much is a car like that worth? Tom Karkiewicz put that setup in a Lark that used to be his daily driver. I'm thinking it was a 62 black 4 door.

The BIN is only $2500. I don't think that's bad for a two door. Am I right?
