I’m using the Art Carr/Winters gate shifter. It’s cable operated so binding is not an issue. You always know what gear your in. It’s great for function however it may not be everyone’s style.

Yeah, I use the Winters shifter also. Over 9 years now.

I use it so much I wore half way thru the shifter "shaft" on mine years ago so it was warranted and I received a hardened hollow shaft so I can run a micro switch in the knob.

Sorry- reread your post and it clearly states stock look.. Go with a column shift.

Winters was my first choice but was unable to find anyone that had it available anymore.

I'll agree with the others that a Winters or Art Carr is one of the best, but he did say he wanted to stick with a stock look and they are definitely not that.
You can wack you leg on the shift lever on a stock setup wheeling. Kind of annoying. This is where a reverse pattern Winters or Art Carr on the floor is nice.
Yes, you'll be cursing the B&M ratchet and they look pretty ugly too.
Never tried a Lokar, but always wanted to. I think they look pretty, but I think it involves a bit of fabbing to make work.
I have an early Mustang floor shifter, I always wanted to try with a cable, but never messed with it. Let me know if you want the challenge. I'll dig it out for shipping $. You can try it.

I get the reverse lock out being a little bit of a pain, but I have had a bnm mega shifter for about 40k miles and a ton of fast shifting in race environments. I have not had a single issue. Mine is mounted to my cage and I'm not using the plastic cover. It is also full of dust from countless hours of following right in people's dust.
What are the issues people have with the rachet type shifters? My actual race truck has a Winters in it. Both have pluses and minuses in racing applications.

Wow THANKS for all the feedback. One of our fellow Classic-Bronco guys came up with a stock column for an automatic so I bought it from him. After some thought about what looks cool and what would be more fun to drive I realized the floor shifter would just be another thing on a very small floor to get in the way

Another thought occurred to me, I am planning a 1 inch body lift. Has anyone had problems with the shifter rod length with a body lift

Should be enough in the adjuster for that.

Winters is now making them under a different division of their company called Maverick Performance and apparently can be ordered direct. Here is their catalog link if that helps.

http://www.maverickperformance.com/

I have a different gate on mine that makes it easy to go back and forth from R to D so if I would need to I can have it over to the side and go back and forth, but if its on the other side of D (3) I don't have to worry about coming from 2nd to 3rd and going through N to Rev.
