    I could not find any long tube 1 5/8" headers on summit, can I just use the full length ones or should I start looking at jegs.com

    Ok guys I need some more assistance. I have decided to go with racing bucket seats and h harnesses. Now I would like to change from the shifter on the column to a floor shifter with a console if possible. The tranny will be the 700r4. I don't have to have a console, it would just be nice. Anyone know of any auto shifters from summit. Or maybe a car model that had a floor shifter and console that would fit the 78' nova. Thanks for any advice.

    Here's a photo of the console from a '75-'80 Nova, also fits Buick Skylark, Olds Omega and Pontiac Venture.

    Many floor shifters are available, here is just one example.....
