Is a t56 in a 66' possible using stock 4 speed console?

Hello everyone. I have a questioon that Hurst Conversions won't seem to help me with, for i purchased my tranny elsewhwere. Do anyone know if it poossible to run the stock 4 speed center console with a T56 (6 speed trans) Magnum transmission in a 1966 Malibu convertable. I know they make a "Hurst Blackjack Offset shifter" for the 5 speed to make the above work, but can't find much on the 6 speed. Im running a LS3 motor also. Thank you Very much.

TTT for Bobby.

The shifter would have to be offset forward 3 inches and to the left about the same. You could build and offset shifter a heck of a lot cheaper. On my '69 I built a shifter and also moved the console rearward 1 1/2" to limit the offset.

Bobby, let me know what you learn. I believe our console geometry is the same 66/67......

Bobby,
Have you reviewed the shifter location measurement comparisons out there, and have you looked at the offset McLeod Slick Stix?

Who did you buy your T56 from? I hope that company would help you?
