70-72 Hurst Dual Gate in a 69?

Looking at possibly picking up a used Dual Gate shifter. It's advertised for a 70-72 442. I was wondering, with so many things common from 69-72 (I know that there are a lot of just 70-72 items also) would this shifter fit in my 69 Cutlass S Convertible with a TH350? I'm not opposed to modifying it to fit, so if it doesn't, does anyone know how much would have to be changed to get it to fit?<P>Thanks,<BR>Tom Bejma<BR>69 Cutlass Convertible<BR>[H/O Clone]

69 used the short console and I don't think the Dual/Gate will fit it. Hurst/Olds had its own specific console for D/G. Shouldn't be any problem to adapt a 70-72 console to the 69 car though. Cut out the 70-72 shifter area to fit the DG and that end should be set. Think Hurst/ Mr Gasket offers a generic dual/gate console that might be more in line with what you need for a Hurst ragtop clone.<P>You may have to do a little modification to the transmission end shift cable bracket or use an aftermarket part.
