Found a Hurst QuarterStick with new cable and all brackets locally for $80. Just need the guy to remove it from his drag truck so I can buy it.

As a side note and bonus the driveshaft fits perfectly! Trans fluid lines and shifter and I can back the car out of the driveway under its own power!
FYI, you can keep the Volvo shifter if you flip the GM selector arm upside down. I used the Lokar 'column shift' linkage kit they sell - has threaded rod, small heim joints on each end, and an adjustable length shift selector arm. Had to clearance the tunnel ~1/8" to clear the flipped arm, but it works perfect and it's nice keeping the interior 100% stock.

I'll take pictures of mine if you're interested.
