      The Early short Tail T-86 used in '53 to '57 Studes. has the straight rectangular Top Cover that will accept a very early 30's Dictator Model or a Jeep top Shifter Cover.

      I don't know if it can be done on the off-square top cover '58-'64 T-86.

      I prefer a quick and easy shifting side shifter floor shift conversion Kit to an Archaic, slow shifting Top Shifter.

                  It WAS right under my Post, without a Quote from him.

                  I really did wonder how you would know that omastreet sent me a PM!

                  I didn't bother to look though to see if you lived near him, and did not know if you know him and communicate with him.

                    omastreet,

                    I have a top shifter from a M-series truck that I would be willing to sell. The conversion is described in an old Hot Rod article which I have attached below. You can click on the pics a couple of times and they will enlarge so they can be read.

                    Let me know via Private Message if you are interested in the shifter.
