Show me your after market shift knob.

Thinking of changing my shifter knob, post pics of what you have. Looking for ideas of what fits and looks period correct on my 73 GTV

I think the original black plastic one looks the part and also to me is nicer to user than a smaller diameter skinny type.

The advantage of the plastic ones is that it wears very well unlike some wooden ones that will eventually crack in our Aussie heat and the varnish wears off due to regular use.

But like paint colours, its what you like the best and a personal choice.

Custom machined - copied off of the stock plastic knob, Lira coin inset that was found when I replaced the floors

While I was at the 2018 Sempreverde AROC National Convention I was able to pick up this shift knob.
It is the pop on type with Allen key tightening screw.

Anyone have some insight as to approx. year this is from and which model it may have come off of?

Push on makes it post cia 1967 ( no more push down reverse )
Milano on badge pre cia 1972 ( removed when the Alfasud went in to production)
Looks similar to mine which is aftermarket.

Whatever you decide on ...do not get a metal one...gets way to hot ....wood or resin..

The older I get.. the faster I was....
