Shift In Style

Shift your muscle Mustang or fast Ford in style, with Ringbrothers’ new billet Throwback shifters. Designed as a direct bolt-on replacement for a Tremec or Hurst two-bolt stick-shift, its new Throwback shifters are the ultimate way to update the look of your Fords interior while delivering a shift lever that stands up to the rigors of performance driving. These shifters are precision-machined from billet aluminum for an impressive look and maximum durability, and feature a 30-degree rearward cant for proper positioning.
