It should. Go pull one from a junkyard, you could probably get it for $5.

The only thing I'm worried about is if the button on the side will unlock the shifter since original is on top, once it warms up though ill go to my u-pull junkyard

I pulled one with the side button off of a Pontiac IIRC. Worked fine. Still use it today.

this is pretty neat if you really want a variety of shift knob choices that will fit our cars

There's a little clip that looks like a staple on the front side of the knob. Put the car in 1st so you have easy access to it (parking brake on and foot on the brake obviously), then pry it out with a small flat blade screwdriver being careful not to jack up the original knob. After that it will just pull/twist off.

I use a pocket screw driver to get the clip loose from the shifter knob, something very small because it is usually into the leather wrap pretty tight, then I use some plyers to finish the removal.

Hope this helps thumbsup

That is from this write-up ...

Thanks Randall, think I might try a 93' Skylark shifter handle. Was looking for something alittle larger.

Check out the shifter on the Grand Ams and Aleros. It's what I'm using now and it feels pretty good in the hand and I think it fits the interior perfectly. (Ignore my ill-fitted radio. I fixed that.)

Many thanks to Randall and Matt. As always, this forum has great ideas and suggestions. Picked both up on ebay for $17. Nice fit and feel on both, although liking the leather one alittle better. EASY PEASY install too  wink !!!!

Chris, I have a tan version of that shifter on my car, and I love it. Color is perfect, and the styling is spot on. I love that chrome button on yours though.

NP. Mine was cracked on the button so while I was in a junkyard one day I was like oh.... That one looks nice. Walked over and tested it on the Rivi I was pulling parts from and it worked perfectly.
