Isuzu 5 Speed Gearbox

PostPost by: Paul A » Thu Nov 30, 2023 1:01 pm

I have a couple of Isuzu Piazza 5 speed gearboxes, one of which I have modified to fit into my S3 as i build it up. As these gearboxes have a remote linkage I'm trying to find a gearstick and housing that bolts directly to the 'box...I think these are from Chevrolet pickups and Chevy Chevette??? As I'm in the UK these gearsticks are a bit hard to find!!!!
If you know of one of these gearsticks or where I might find one, please let me know......

Many thanks

Hi Just saw your post re Isuzu 5spd gear box. I have converted one of these for install into my S2 (When I find the time to lift the body off)
A couple of pics attached to show the old original row boat tiller to the neat and compact elan like gear shifter all made from the original gear stick parts.
