Our short shift kit offers a 40% reduction in throws and includes the following:
-Machined aluminum base with hardware
-Solid, cold formed and triple chrome plated steel shift lever (correctly threaded for the original knob)
-Precision machined and hardened shift socket
-New plastic socket bushing and shift rod bushing
The lever is precision Tig welded to the hardened socket after chroming. This is a complete replacement kit. There is no need to cut or modify your original shift lever. The original shift lever can be replaced at any time.
Installation is simple and can be done with normal hand tools. The original heater controls are still functional but the shift lock is not. It can be left in place for originality if desired.

Finally got around to installing the short shift kit and the shift coupler on my 1965 356C.
Couple of hours work yielded the results I didn't expect. the combination of the short shift kit and coupler not only reduced the shift throws dramatically but also made the entire shifting mechanism tight and enjoyable, no play, no sloppiness, just exact and quick gear changing, made my 356 more of a sports car, next project will be the 901 throw-out bearing conversion kit and sport sway bar.......I may just take this bad boy racing...thank you Willhoit and Leno
