not really though, those are a pain in the ass to drive. My buddy had one in his '59 Biscayne. I vote H shift.

i know someone who put the engine of a Renault 5 Turbo into a Renault 4

the shifter in those comes out of the console, the go into 5th gear you would flip the thing over

I cant find a pic

"Another detail which made the Renault 4 different from other cars was the gear lever, which was on the dashboard. This was an effective means of creating a flat floor, using a simple design borrowed from the 2CV. It passed over the longitudinal engine and clutch to the gearbox at the front. Though unconventional and criticised by conservative motoring journalists, the dash-mounted gear lever was easy to use and left more interior space free."

ah, found a diagram...that's very strange. You mean to say you had to turn it clockwise/cc to shift to 5th?

I've seen some weird things as well. In the old beetles (4 speed), reverse was in the same position as 4th. To shift to it, you had to push straight down on the top of the shifter as you shifted.

Also, we had a carbed(no ecu) jeep with a bad tranny, so my dad pulled one out of a jeep commanche. Problem was, it was a computer-controlled transmission...so my dad made a shift kit out of several servo motors and some switches. Same thing as a manual valve body, but he did it electronically. Pic of the console. Note the handmade shifter.
Nope, no sig here.

Good old H shift you can't go rong. But i still think that 3 on the tree is brilliant i rekon they shud bring it bak (not really) but get ride of sequential i think you shud make up ur mind n go one way or the other not sit inbetween like a boffin
