Shifter Hump

Greetings to all! I am in need of a 1967 shifter hump. I bought one of those repops from 4sp conversions, junk! I would think any factory hump from a 65-69ish would work. Even if not perfect, a whole lot closer than the turd I bought. It痴 going in a 1967 Bel air, bench seat. Thanks in advance!

I agree, junk! If you look on ebay at the Parts Place listing for 66-67 Impala Shift Hump, I'm the one who left the review. I spent HOURS reworking mine before I could use it. In the end I think I was still better off than trying to build my own, but not much.

Prepare to pay if you find an original for sale though.....

Thankfully a friend loaned me his original so I had a sample for when I reworked my repro piece.

Thanks Darth, I did see your review, but fancy camera work made the one from 4speed conversions look a little better than the one you had. Not the case. $70 for one square foot of flat sheet metal with a hole in it! Keep me in mind if you hear about something. Is my thought about multiple years accurate? Someone out there might have an old floor shift husk rotting away on the farm. Otherwise, I値l send this one to you and let you do your magic!🤣 Thanks again.

I bought one from a vendor located in PA. It looked like something a 5 yr old kid hammered on. I sent it back!! It was terrible.

I recently bought one cut from a car and honestly, I was thinking before I put it in my car I should make a fiberglass copy of it and then make myself a wooden buck. I've got plenty of Oak/Hickery/Walnut here to make one! I suspect you're on a shorter time schedule than I am though.

Thanks BA! I知 gonna pull the PG out today, then mock install the muncie so I can cut a hole. I値l then have a few months of chassis restoration. Heck, I suppose I could wait to install a hump until just before interior goes in. It will be this year, but not this month.

Absolutely you should make a wooden buck! Even though there's not a huge market I've seen a number of guys looking for a decent floor hump for these cars.

I pretty much vowed I'd never do that again when I did mine! And yes, you will find this one in 65-67 floor shift 4 speed cars.

Here's a thread I did on another forum (for Canadian Pontiacs, they use the same hump).

So I致e been thinking(yes, it hurt a little), what about using a shifter hump from a 67 A-body car? Sure, the hump may be different, but how different could it be? I知 thinking it would be a closer fit than the junk I bought. Anyone have experience with this? Thanks

Actually, around the time I did my car I also worked on a 67 Chevelle factory 4 speed car and the hump is completely different, it won't do anything for a B body 4 speed swap. I'll see if I have a picture of it. I don't think I do but there is a repro hump for the Chevelle that is quite accurate, not like the B body repro hump....

This actually is VERY similar to the original Chevelle hump.
