aaaaarrrrgh.... looks like all of the Hurst shifter sticks except the most important one - the curved stick for four speed in a 1955-57 Chevy with a bench seat...  looks like a must have deal anyway

Couldn't a T handle be made with a piece of Evergreen round rod?  Or even some sprue.  I'm more concerned about a shift boot.

a shift boot can be made by stacking rectangles of .020 or .030 Evergreen plastic to fit the shift boot retainer.

now if only Detail Master would make the Pistol grip for the Mopar's !

That's another one that would be good to have - Maybe Detail Master has more in the works with the bench seat Chevy and pistol grip Mopars.

How many shifter handles come in the kit?

that is a good question  - it looks like nine - the sheet has 18 shift handle parts to make 9 shifter handles - they can be paired up back to back so the lettering shows on both sides and they build up to scale thickness.

I think Bob is asking bout the number of handles or knobs, not the shift levers? If so, it looks like only one is included, but a box of sewing pins could provide more than one would ever need if you're going with the ball style knobs.

*edit* Just noticed they include several lock nuts for the knob/handle, too. :)

yeah, I could have mis-read the question - they include nine shifter balls - description below is straight from Detail Master's web site... hope this is better.

but I agree there are other sources for the knob - I think I would try to source the knob or handle from something else anyway.

Price of the shifters from Hobbylinc is a couple bucks cheaper.  I'll get notified when they arrive and create an order.  Or you can do a backorder with them.

Same here, I've got Hobbylinc and MegaHobby both set to email me as soon as they are in stock.
