Default Art Carr Shifter - how does it work?

hey guys i was lookin around BroncoGraveyard and wondering what else i should order since im already ordering a list of parts, and i found this:
http://broncograveyard.com/bronco/i-...for_bronco.htm

now my question is, what the fukc is it?haha
at first i thought it was like a conversion to a floor shifter, then i looked at the pic enlarged and the slots just go 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and N. so what about R and P? its a C6 auto trans in a 79 bronco, also is it worth the money? cause the shifter on the column is very poor and you gotta beat it up with your fist to get it in park and the gear indicator is gone off the column so i just gotta guess what gear shes in
thanks


oh and heres the enlarged pic for you lazyasses haha

R & P are at the top of the gate, you can't see them in the pic. The Art Carr shifters work very well...

Or similar depending on the trans and gate plate that is used.

reverse gate is for a revers valve body.

I would just purchase a b&m ratchet shift. They are cheaper and work well to. The art car is very nice if you have an easy to reach area to place it.

but my column is fucked up, so i figure instead of fixing the column shift this would be awesome, and id probably swap in some buckets and a console in the middle for the shifter, so it would be an armrest and shifter

i love me and my ideas

ummm.... unless you have a reverse pattern valve body then you should get the standard pattern. Just because the shifter labels something one way doesnt mean the trans is going to do what the shifter is labeled as.

Currently your trans is designed to do
P
R
N
D
2
1 or something along those lines so your shifter gate and labels need to match.
Make sense?
