Manual with full center console

Hey all, a buddy of mine wants a full center console in his truck but it's a manual trans. We were brainstorming and thought about using the shifter and cable assembly from a manual fwd car. Then fabbing some sort of interface with the shift base. We got the idea from our old Volvo FE chassis squad truck. The shifter was mounted on the dog box. What do y'all think? I did a search and it came up empty.

Re: Manual with full center console

why not just cut a hole in the console and run the shifter up through it?

We thought about that but it would kill so much space on the console. As of now we are looking at fabrication of solid linkage.

Re: Manual with full center console

it will work for a while, but like cab over semi trucks it will get real sloppy real fast.

Update, he ended up pulling the manual and throwing an auto in with a manual valve body
