Default Crazy 4 Speed Shifter Hurst Ram Rod?

Can anyone ID this shifter? The mechanism appears to be Hurst Ram Rod but the handle does not have anything stamped into it. If someone made a new handle and rods for this back in the day, they were very talented.


Thanks,

Jason

It could have been made as a one off by the Hurst Engineers for a specialty car or even one of there own personal cars.
I have had the pleasure of meeting and hanging with some of the Hurst Engineers....very talented bunch

Thanks guys. Dan, that could certainly be the case. It came out of the heart of Los Angeles from an old hot hodder who used it in a 37 Chevy.

Kinda Looks like a first design “Mr Gasket vertical gate, and the reverse lockout short handle has been cutoff and a taller round handle welded to the stub. If you look at the threads on both handles, 1 is fine, 1 is coarse. Could also be a copy of a Ramrod too. JMO

Sorry for the delay in response. I own the shifter but it won't be in my hands for awhile. I can post more pics when I have it here.
