Winters’ Sidewinder Automatic Shifters are an excellent choice for street machines, drag cars, and off-roaders. The shifter’s jam proof ratcheting design allows drivers to slam into gear without fear of damaging the shifter mechanism. What’s more, it’s mechanically impossible to accidentally shift into reverse from any forward gear while the vehicle is moving.

Winters builds its Sidewinder shifters to withstand the rigors of a race season, employing steel guard bars and rugged metal housings. The shifters are sold as a complete assembly with a console, mounting hardware, and a 5 foot linkage cable, Sidewinder shifters are available in both conventional and reverse shifter patterns for most popular domestic transmissions, including:

  • GM TH350/400, 700R4, 4L80E, Powerglide
  • Chrysler Torqueflite 727/A-904
  • Ford C-4 and C-6, AODE, E40D

Winters also makes a lockout version of the Sidewinder Shifter, which features a collar that must be pulled up to shift in/out of reverse and park. Lockout shifters also incorporate a safety switch that requires the shifter be in the park position prior to starting the engine.

A Winters Sidewinder Automatic Shifter was featured on the first episode of the 2016 season of PowerNation TV’s Truck Tech. Watch the full episode.
