Review & Install Video

Precise, Smooth Shifts. The Barton Hybrid 3 Shifter with Flat Stick and Knob implementation is engineered for precise and effortless shifting on your 2015-2018 Ford Mustang GT. It's able to achieve 25% throw reduction while also increasing side-to-side distance between gears, allowing for easier, more forgiving shifts with little or no increase in noise. In addition, its side-to-side spring pressure feature lets you consistently make perfect 2-3 shifts, while its 3-bushing design eliminates most of the slop and deflection for highly accurate shifts.

Hybrid Functionality. The Barton Hybrid 3 Shifter with Flat Stick and Knob has a unique linkage design that allows you to install it either by using a transmission mount or by attaching it directly to the body. With the trans mount, the shifter is installed as a solid linkage, while mounting directly to the body frees a hinge point that permits the device to act as a pivot, moving where it needs to when you hit a bump on the road.

Unique Cartridge Design. Barton Industries engineered their short throw shifter with a unique "cartridge" system that allows the user to change the amount of throw reduction by just swapping out the center cartridge. Cartridges are available in 25%, 20% and 15% - sold separately. A 25% throw cartridge is included with this shifter.

Retains Reverse Lock-out. The Barton Industries Short Throw Shifter was specifically designed to retain the Back Up Camera (if so equipped) and the Reverse Lock-out safety feature of the modern manual Mustangs to prevent accidentally shifting into reverse.

Superior Construction. CNC-machined in the USA from 6061 T6 billet aluminum and 303 stainless steel, for rock solid construction, this Barton short throw shifter includes all the hardware required for installation.

Application. The Barton Hybrid 3 Short Shifter with Flat Stick and Black Knob is designed for the 2015-2018 GT Mustangs equipped with the MT-82 manual 6-speed transmission. Flat stick and black shift knob are included.

What are the pros/cons of transmission mounting vs. body mounting this shifter, aside from the one sentence in the product description? Could someone explain it or point me to a resource? I'm having some trouble finding solid info. Thank you

Mark

What is the thread pattern on this shifter?? gt350 shift knob is 10mm x1.25 and the regular mustangs is 12mm x1.75...

JohnAAA

  • This shifter will have the stock thread pattern which will be 12mm x1.25 and will fit any stock size knob.

Will the push down reverse feature move up and down in any gear, like how you can pull up on the reverse collar in any gear on the other stock 2015 GT shifter and Barton shifter?

JayS

  • With the Barton Hybrid 3 Shifter the reverse lockout will function the same as the OEM, with the exception of pushing down as opposed to pulling up.

I have a factory stock 2016 Mustang GT Shifter with a GT350 shift knob (12mm x 1.25 thread pitch) purchased off your website. Will I still be able to use my GT350 shift knob with this shifter kit?

    Old school feel

    The Barton H3 shifter with the flat stick has the feel and look of performance cars of the 60s and 70s. Just what I was after. When the shifter is transmission mounted you can feel the gears thru the flat stick, not a bad thing. The shifts are noticeably shorter and precise. When going from second to third I no longer guide the shifter I just push and it goes in to gear effortlessly. The construction of the unit is first rate and everything needed for instillation is packed in the kit. Did I need this shifter, no. But I am sure glad I bought it. It makes driving my mustang even more enjoyable.

    Quality galore!

    It's a shame none of the parts can be seen once installed however the night and day shift feel makes up for it slightly, install is straightforward and common sense if your general mechanical knowledge, if not you'll be fine seeing a step by step vid on YouTube.

    Great Quality Product

    I started off by researching stock shifter rear mount upgrades, then moved to the Blowfish bracket (which also looks awesome, in that it mounts the stock shifter to transmission, and is easy to install), then moved to short throw upgrades to replace the internal socket that rests in the linkage. At that point I realized I was just looking for shortcuts to replace the whole thing... and bought this. If you don't think you'll be able to install it yourself, don't try. If you do think you can, it is very doable, just takes time, patience, a 10mm swivelling/ratcheting wrench, and 1/4" socket swivel adapters. I removed the exhaust also, and VERY glad I did. Fit and finish is fantastic, and shifts feel AMAZING. It's a little embarrassing to see the OEM shifter in person, side by side with this piece of engineering, as this one is vastly supirior, and Ford should have just built the OEM one better. Since upgrading, I haven't been able to cause a lockout, or missed shift. Short throw feels great and incredibly precise... almost too much for some who aren't used to it. If you're looking for a REAL upgrade to the shifting experience, while eliminating the annoyances of stock - this is a great option!

    Missing a gear is a thing in the past with this shifter! Feels better then the OEM shifter, American muscle staff answered all questions I had with this product and they also had the cheapest barton shifter on the internet!

    Shifter is Night and Day difference

    I decided on the Hybrid 3 Flat shifter as I wanted to get away from the lift reverse lockout. This Shifter brings a big grin to my face everytime I Chirp 3rd gear With Ease! Shifts are rock solid positive and very reassuring shifting into 3rd which was my problem gear. I did have to contact customer support as initially the reverse lockout did not operate. The video online is not for this shifter. The cartridge can be installed 180 out which disables the press down to release the reverse lockout feature. The flat shelf like side goes on the drivers side to engage the shifter when in the neutral gate.
