Original Series IV wood gear shifter knob?


Donation Time
It looks like you beat the shift knob topic to death. We agree that the factory original knobs we're black Bakelite with white shift patterns depending on the synchro'd first gear.
What's not addressed is the threads on the knob. These vary wildly, check the thread pattern of your shifter before you buy someone's 'rare' dress-up knob. I got screwed when I bought a cool leather wrapped Alpine knob for my 7/16 x 24 shifter that was tapped for a 1/2 x 20 shifter. Check that it will fit. I had to have an adapter made.

Where, or who, made your adapter?
