Description
 
These are the same shift rods sold by our competitors and they all state that this rod fit Beetle/Ghia from 1968 to 1979. THIS IS INCORRECT, there were 2 different lengths of shift rods used in these years. From 1968 to 1972, the shift rod was longer and measured 45-1/8 inches long. In 1973, VW moved the shifter position back a small amount and from 1973 to 1979, the shift rods where 43-5/8 inches long overall (41-11/16 inches Center of cup to center of pin hole).

Since the 68-72 shift rod is not available, many customers purchase this later version and lengthen it to fit.

One other note, shift rods are bent to fit around the e-brake handle area inside the tunnel, they are not supposed to be straight.
