Ive been lookin around for little things to do to my car and come across a EF Fairmont like mine with a BA/BF automatic gear knob in it, I was just wondering how easy it would be to do something like this.

Q. Will the BA auto shifter fit onto an AU?
A. No. The BA button pulls the centre shaft up, whereas the AU shifter button pushes the centre shaft down. The shaft on the AU is also solid, whereas the BA is hollow. It has been done however the button no longer works and it becomes an open gate system

However, the six speed automatic shifter lever also PUSHES the gear selector rod down (which I know because I have one), so it could theoretically fit. Problem is making sure the heights are right, etc.
