I have a 1965 4 speed shifter boot that I came across but the rubber has gotten stiff. Any ideas on how to soften it up?

Google> how to soften up stiff rubber.
Various ways to do it on there, I think I would try the silicone spray and plastic bag method first.

I used WD40 spray on some rubber windshield gaskets to soften them, however, I don't see this as a long term solution.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.
