New old stock engraved H shifter "black ball-knobs" for Dinos

Hallo,

maybe on some of your cars the small black ball shifter knobs are worn or replaced by
Chinese "pimp my ride" items.

In Germany the original Shifter knobs (engraved and white filled H gear pattern)
are available in small numbers because a member of our local Dino club found
a dead stock in Bologna with some tens of those.

please watch this informative page on our German Dino owners club Forum:

please click here:

For the Fiat Dino 2000 cars and most Fiat Spider 124 / Abarth range of cars / Alfa Romeo:

That isn't even close to the original shift knob from a 246 I'm afraid. The original was shiny black plastic and only had the gear numbers plus R for reverse engraved into it. The font used is also very different and there wasn't any engraving for the selector pattern itself. Here is one of my originals for comparison.

Hallo,
hi thanks for your picture, but you are wrong, ;-)

back in the mid 1980s Fiat and Ferrari plastic parts supplier "STARS SPA" Torino was
baught from MAGNETI MARELLI and since this time any catalogue or microfiche ordered
replacement knob (not necessarily all of the the factory delivered knobs that came with the cars)
from FIAT AND FERRARIs contract dealers came with engraved gear numbers
plus the H pattern. (This was the time Fiat had bought Ferrari Sefac)
The offered NOS OEM knobs are directly from an old Fiat warehouse near Bologna.
Back in the 70s and 80s this dealer used to maintain Dino Fiat, Fiat 130 Lampredi 3200V6
and several Ferrari 206/246...he also had a Weber carb repair workshop.
All those cars shared many precision parts, interior trim and even the engines...

For Fiat Dino, 124 Spider and X 1/9 Bertone cars allone (!) there were 3 different kind of knobs.
Some cars came without engraved pattern, some with only the numbers and most US Export cars
with H pattern plus numbers...
I am not sure how many designs were even offerd by Ferrari itself.
Ive seen many Fiat Dinos with H or without H pattern.
Sadly lots of todays cars (even the expensively restored ones)
have worn or completely wrong aftermarket knobs. (Carbon or alloy el cheapo china stuff)

Best regards

Yorck,

I own three 246 GT models, all still fitted with their original gear shift knobs. They are all the same as the one in my photograph. If you care to look at Matthias Bartz very detailed Dino Compendium book you'll see the same shift pattern knob as mine in every one of his 246 models. The 308 also used the same one as the 246 whilst the 206 has a different shaped gear shift knob entirely.

I'm not familiar with the Fiat Dino models so you may well be correct on those but it most certainly is not correct for a Ferrari Dino 206/246 or the 308.

Okay if you say that, I can only speak for that we in Germany know and see,
but those italian knobs on Ebay with engraved H
are from original Fiat Dino stock.
Maybe a Fiat Dino 2000 or 2400 owner in the USA likes them.
Dino Fiats also are pretty rare and not the worst cars...
These engraved knobs are pretty rare and I think they wont even hurt the interior of a good 246GT if the original old knob
is missing or worn.
Ive seen Toyota or China alloy / carbon aftermarket knobs installed on 246 GT and Fiat Dino levers,
those look totally out of place.
Better to replace those with the Fiat Dino ones... (just to my mind)

;-) Best regards

Yorck

Not sure but is the Fiat Dino different than 246 Dino?
In any case, Ian knows his stuff regarding the Dino 246

Scott- Affirmative, much different. Had one (70 2400 GT) in the early 80s. ZF gearbox, longer shift handle, etc. Assembled at Maranello from Fiat parts to keep the factory busy while they figured out EPA/DOT regulations.

Here's mine, a 1969 Euro Tipo L and I believe the knob is the original.

I doubt that there is a new old stock buttons you have, I have almost the first road car with the name Dino a fiat dino spider 2.0 and it has only black round knob I also have the last produced 2.0 spider and it has round black knob, fiat dino2400 have almost same knob as ferrari dino246, the images show 2.0 fiat dino spider, 2400 fiat dino,ferrari dino 246 M and 246 E, I have never seen an original dino with the knob that you view

You were right, I mixed them with those mounted on Fiat Dino and Fiat 130 Coupe, the original ones are only with numbers....I have found some new ones (only numbers - no H) offering those originals now.
Please watch my other thread.

Sorry for the confusion, I only knew some Dino 2400 from Fiat never seen a Ferrari made 246 Gt by myself with own eyes...
In Germany there are some 246GT around with Fiat Dino H knobs....
