Not as such, but you can modify the handle to accept some units. Have done the wagon for the Boss and fitted a chrome auto shifter handle, still need to make a new boot for it.

You need to cut the hand brake handle down and fit a new bush to accept the new button handle. I never took pics when I did mine but not hard if you can use a grinder and a welder.

when you cut the handle and set it up, the new knob slips on and is held with grub screws. You use the existing rod that the factory knob screws onto and mod that.

Sorry about that. The stock Auto handle does screw off and the shifter that I showed you slips over and is held in place by grub screws.

No Cable, there is a rod. You may need to shorten this a little to suit. Easy to cut, just use a anglegrinder or a hacksaw.
