I recently bought a complete conversion kit to change the TH400 in my 71 Formula over to a TKO500 5 speed.  I didn't buy the round chrome stick they sell because I want a flat Hurst stick. I'm looking at Hurst part numbers 538 7436 and 538 6836.  Has anyone used one of these sticks with a TKO transmission in a 70-81 Firebird?

Does this mean the dual gate is up for sale?  :-)

No, it'll go in my 74 455 Trans Am, sorry.

I'll be looking forward to post on this project! :) My future plans is to do the same thing in my 71 FB.
