Pontiacs seemed to of had the Hurst shifter over the ITM, the other divisions either didn't get them or was low installed numbers. The ITM & OEM Hurst are copies of each other using the same rods & hardware. The OEM Hurst was different than the Comp Plus shifter that it looked like. Like I posted earlier Inline Tube looks to be repoping the Hurst/ITM bushings.
I have 3 OEM A body Hurst shifters. It seems that the BOP A bodies came with the Hurst. The GM parts book even shows Hurst labelling on the chrome handle. It's kind of an odd ball as the BOP cars did not offer the 4 speed on every model year during the 78-80 time period.
Just a quick update: I ended-up going with a set of rubber bushings, from Motorcity Super Cars/Inline Tube, instead of modifying the shifter. Other than needing to make some adjustments to the shifter's linkage rods: The shifter is noticeably functioning better than it was. Thanks for all of your help!
