I don't think anyone makes anything like that. Column shift is "uncool" to start with, why make it worse by calling attention to it?
it may be "uncool" to you, but 2 of our 4 cars have it. My dads 01 Silverado and my 1993 se has it.
Notice the "quotes"? I drive a Park Avenue dude, think I've got a 6spd or something? I was playing devil'* advocate, explaining the warped mentality of America'* aftermarketers.

They ARE uncool..









Okay, to be fair about it, my Grand Prix HAD column shift, but I hated it so much I converted it over to console. Worlds better. The only thing good about column shift is if your girlfriend likes to give roa.. Nevermind. Not going there.

Yeah those column shifters are usually just pressed on and sometimes pop off. You can get replacements that look original. Probably can get others as well.
