There is no shortage of parts to personalize your S197. As new parts continue to flood the market, making your Stang a one-of-a-kind street machine is easier than ever. With the slowly recovering economy still a concern for the average enthusiast, inexpensive, DIY upgrades are an option for raising the style and performance factor of your Pony.

Complete Pony Services' Mach II automatic shifter is a great way to add the aggressive look of a manual transmission to your auto-equipped V-6 or V-8 S197. The Mach II shifter allows you to use most aftermarket shift knobs, as well as custom trim rings to further enhance your interior.

Operation of the manual-look shifter is simple. Pushing down on the handle allows the driver to maneuver the shifter through the shift positions. The shifter also retains all of the stock shifter functions, including Overdrive turnoff.

Installation is quick and easy, and can be completed in less than an hour with simple handtools. Follow along as we touch on the finer points of installing Complete Pony Services' Mach II automatic shifter.
