    Power Shift Shifter Wanted

    After years of building a super sweet supercharged 4 speed 59 Lark, Henry Smith, the Son of Lebanon Pa. Studebaker Dealer Herman Smith, is having hip/leg issues and can no longer push the clutch pedal.
    He is contemplating installing an a 700-4R automatic trans. He is looking for a complete Floor Shifter Assembly including the fiberglass tower for a Lark. Yes, we know the floor pans are different between 59 and 63-64's and he will probably have to do some modification to the fiberglass housing.
    Would like to pick-up in South Bend if anyone has or knows of one available please PM me.

    Thanks.

    I think SI has the tower and if it's going to be a 700r4 why not build a center consoul and use a good aftermarket shifter

    The car already has Lark bucket seats and console, want to keep the theme going.
