    Review & Install Video

    Hey gang, Justin from AmericanMuscle.com here with a couple of Mustang throwbacks. I’m talking about these retro 5-speed shift knobs and available for all 79-04 Mustangs, Flashy chrome shift knobs weren’t all the rage back in the 60s and 70s, chances are if you owned a Mustang or Hotrod back then you would find something similar to either this white, or black knob. Both of these knobs are CNC in a single block of either black or white resin and are not painted, therefore you don’t have to worry about them chipping or fading over the years. I noticed that some of you on the site have mentioned these knobs don’t get as hot during the summer moths thanks to that resin. Installing a new shift knob has to be one of the easiest mods to tackle on your ride. Simply unscrew your factory knob, screw on the retainer nut first then install your new retro 5-speed knobs, getting everything put on shouldn’t take you any more than 5 minutes. And I’ve noticed that some of you on the site have mentioned that once you have installed your retro 5-speed knob you have a little trouble keeping that shift boot up, well I’ve got an easy fix for that and all you need for it is a roll of electrical tape. Once you’ve got your tape all you need to do is wrap it around the top of your shifter a couple times until you have created enough of a lip to keep your factory shift boot up, see, easy and quick fix to a common problem. These shift knobs are a great way to give your ride that classic retro vibe that never goes out of style all while taking it easy on your wallet, check them out.

    Nostalgic Styling. Add a cool vintage touch to your modern manual pony with a Modern Billet Retro Style Black Shift Knob. This shift knob features the standard 5-speed shift pattern right on top.

    Quality Materials. This Shift Knob is a made from a solid black resin compound, not painted! So there is no need to worry about paint flaking off in your hand.

    Simple Install. Just unscrew your old stock shift knob off and screw the new knob on, it's just like changing a light bulb.

    Application. The Modern Billet Retro Style Black Shift Knob is designed to fit 1979 to 2004 5-speed Manual Mustangs or Mustangs with a 12mm x 1.75 thread pattern shift handle.Note. Not compatible with 2003-2004 6-speed Cobra Mustangs.

      Huge shifter knob

      This knob is way to big. I’m 6’2” hands the size of a kids head and this knob is just way to big and bulky. Hate it. Looks weird on there too

      Pretty nice

      It’s heavy so you know it’s good quality. The threads did come out of the shift knob, but I think it may have been me over tightening it. Put a little threadlocker and it’s good as new

      Great product at a great price!

      I got this along with a steeda tri-ax shifter. Both work great together. 5 minute install time for both this and the shifter.

      The new black shift knob was extremely easy to Install, only 5 minutes, and feels great to the touch when shifting. Fills the hand, better than stock.

      Looks good, Cheaply made

      This shift knob looks amazing. But I had it on for about 4 minutes to see how I liked it, and when I took it off for a brief moment, the thread inside the knob broke. It looks good don’t get me wrong, it was just made cheap.
