Looking for a stock Lark/Avanti three and/or four speed shifter for my hardtop project. My floor shift bracket will be done in the near term plus I have my T86 OD transmission on my workbench to overhaul if needed so I figure it is a good time to begin a shifter search.

The two shifters are nearly identical with the execption of a dedicated reverse lever in the four speed units, the three speed shifter has a big bearing or washer where the reverse lever would go.

Well, If you have a shifter in the parts bin or have any leads, please let me know.

I think all of the Lark Taxi parts cars were scrapped many years ago!
Good luck with that! [:0]

Tom in CA had a 3 speed in his Avanti before he converted it to a 5 speed. He may still have the shifter. Never hurts to ask.
