if anybody is interested in new old stock Ferrari and Dino shift knobs
original 43mm OEM Design ...
( late 1960s / early 70s style black heavy hard bakelite not PVC!),
please let me know.
Most cars I see driving around,
have scratched or broken shift knobs
( Or some cheap chinese aftermarket leather, wood or CNC alloy large 45mm balls,
those look downmarket in my eyes (too much "wanna be a ricer-look" )
Lots of mid 1980s Ferraris that should have red shift knob typo
feature wrong white replacement standard knobs installed.
In the late 1980s I bought a dead stock of an
old Dino and Ferrari Dealer near Bologna,
so I have some new white and red knobs laying in my stock collecting dust.
Not many, so if you are intersted you can send me a mail. mrtubeamp at web dot de
Late Ferrari 275 GTB/C etc.. 43mm standard shift Knob -early version glossy hard bakelite material
with M10 metal core thread
(NOT todays cheap easy scratching soft PVC)
Beware of Chinese (too small = 40mm) PVC fake-balls with ugly typo!
here you can see such a low quality China-fake: http://i47.tinypic.com/34qp6p5.jpg
I also have some of the very early ancient roman (!) style engraved 4 speeder floorshift lever knobs
mostly those knobs coming with unrestored cars look awfull.
Faded, cracked, worn and totally grabbed off...typo allmost gone...
Most well restored 190 212 250 etc...have wrong alloy or wood shifter balls installed, but a true Villa d`Este or Pebble Beach concours car needs the original 43mm black bakelite one with deeply engraved white roman lettering.
Example CORRECT! http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images...rvignalec.jpg/
Example WRONG -wood replica knob-! ;-) http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8508/8...b7e1b950_z.jpg
Example WRONG - too large 45mm CNC alloy China replica knob-! ;-) http://image.motortrend.com/f/featur...erior_view.jpg
Thats the only correct ancient Ferrari Shift Knob for NON OVERDRIVE 4 Speed cars:
190 Inter 212 250 etc... (those 1950s ones with M10 thread not those late 40s with rubber "flip on the stick" filling)
if you are interested just let me know, price is 170 US Dollars plus shipment for any knob you see here.
You know the Ferrari dealer takes 300 Dollars and more for those knobs
and you dont get the red or roman ones anymore.
(And he does not have the good old heavy bakelite ones with metal thread only those later 1990s PU plastic re-edition types ) [email protected]
