Default Long "School Bus" shifter

I have a 3 spd that was converted to floor shift. I hate how far I have to bend over to shift. Do any of you know of a really tall shifter that would allow me to shift without bending over so far?

Gennie, no relation, makes tall shifters that look nice and vintage. Here's a link to the 23 inch

most BIG Truck stops sell shifter extenders and knobs.

My first truck was that way. The Shifter actually hit the seat if you didn't have it all the way back. And since the previous owner was a bit shorter, it never fully engaged 3rd gear (which caused the transmission to fail).

I fabbed up some taller mounts to fix my problem... sold it several years ago to someone else who wanted the short shifter (since my trucks have all been coverted over to toploaders.)
