    My 73 is a console car currently with the console removed. The console won't fit because the shifter hits it on the left side. The stick was bent left and I straightened it, still too far left and imo, too far back.

    The stick is 11" high, no offset from center, and curved back about 7", I think it's the wrong stick. Everything I see shows 70-72 taking a 5386836 Hurst stick but not showing it being in a 73. I think the offset will help and the slope back will be better, but will it hit the dash in first and third?

    Anyone running a 5386836 in their 73 console car?

    I removed this Hurst shifter from a console equipped 73Z. I don't know what the handle number would be . It's a Comptition Plus shifter . It used the low factory bracket with the bent rods .

    You probably could offset drill a metal extension that you can hide under the boot to put the stick where you want it

    I bought a new competition plus shifter with a 1" offset and a 4" return, fits the console and my reach perfectly!

    It depends on what the shifter was originally for .And there are a variety of sticks as well

    Hurst used to sell just the shifter handle separately for a specific vehicle application.
