Every Superformance Mk III comes with a reproduction of shifter that Ford used with the four-speed Mustangs and Galaxies. For the Fords, the shifter angled to the rear. When used on the Cobras, it was reversed and angled to the front to compensate for the extreme reward position of the engine and transmission. The Superformance shifter (shown of the left) is a faithful reproduction, right down to the reverse lockout "T" (non-functional) and the four-speed knob.
The Jordan Shifter (on the right) is designed and crafted from solid 5/8" stainless steel billet by Bob Jordan (SP181) as a bolt on replacement for performance driving. SP 218 has had one for a years now and it is an improvement over the 1960's original in comfort, speed, and precision. The Jordan Shifter is designed for the more natural "palm vertical" grip. It eliminates the "T", which jabs the palm on quick shifts. It is shorter and shifts quicker. The shorter lever arm also makes it harder to overpower the 5th gear detent, reducing occurrences of the dreaded adrenaline induced and embarrassing 2nd to 5th snap shift. The Jordan Shifter is recommended for both street and track use.
The Jordan Track Shifter provides an even shorter throw. It has a corresponding higher effort and is recommended for track use only.
The Jordan Tall Boy Shifter has the same ergonomic shape as the Jordan Shifter but is approximately 2.5" longer than the Jordan Shifter.
The Jordan Shifter, Track Shifter, and Tall Boy Shifter include a Standard Black Knob. Optional knobs include a Polished Stainless Steel Ball and the awesome Silver Bullet, the polished aluminum version of the Standard Knob.
