T- handle shifter-4 Speed

Hey all!
Does anyone know of a company or place that makes a T- handle or the whole T- handle shifter (4 speed) that would bolt into place on a C3 vette?
I'm looking to convert my '81. It's a personal preference thing. For me, a T-handle is more comfortable for both shifting and resting my hand on while cruz'n.
I looked into modifiying a Hurst T- handle, but there isn't enough material to drill and tap and so on and so forth. I don't want it to look like a "butcher job," if you know what I mean. Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

Thanks topless,
But the problem I'm running into is that the threaded part of the stick is 14mm x 1.5 thread pitch. The adaptors are SAE thread. And the thread depth is greater than the T- handle thickness itself. And I would have to groove out a relief for the "reverse lockout" mechanism...and there is not enough material to do that. So that leaves me stuck on my idea with no resolve.

Darrel,

I'm almost positive Eklers sells what your looking for, either a Hurst or a reproduction.
I'll try to find it later today.

Almost forgot,, they say it isn't a good idea to rest your hand on the shifter. You should shift and then return your right hand to your wife or girlfriend ( whichever is with you at the time )
