Hey everybody, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my quick overview of the Ford GT350 Shift Knob, available for your 2015 and up Shelby GT350 and 350R. This quick overview is going to cover a few basic topics here with the GT350 Shift Knob. Basically what you're going to be looking at as far as styling, construction and benefits, and then also what it takes to get it installed onto your ride. If you have one of the aforementioned Shelbys I talked about earlier, well, you're going to be looking at a very straightforward and very easy install. One out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter with a little bit more detail coming up on that later on.Plain and simple, guys, this is going to be a factory replacement shift knob for all Shelby GT350s and 350R Mustangs equipped with a Tremec TR-3160 transmission. So again guys, this is the OE shift knob found in all 2015 and up Shelbys here. I just want to point out, this is not a reproduction. This is not an aftermarket part. This is directly from Ford. So for all you Shelby owners out there who may have damaged your factory shift knob somehow. Or maybe even for Shelby owners out there looking for a dedicated shift knob for track days and then one for everyday use, this would certainly be a good option. And because this is the OE knob, you can expect the same OE styling in the factory GT350 and R cars. You're going to be looking at the silver face here with red inlaid shift pattern, six speed of course. Reverse is in the same location. On the side, you're looking at a very nice black grip overall. Stitched very nicely, and again just a really nice shift knob. Now this thing does maintain the factory reverse lock out feature, and it can be used with aftermarket short shifters as long as they're designed for the Tremec equipped Shelbys. As far as the price point, guys, well you are going to be looking at just south of 100 bucks for this shift knob from Ford, which might sound a little steep given the fact that this is a shift knob. But keep in mind, this is an OE part, so the quality is going to definitely reflect that. And this also is a very unique shift knob, especially if you're throwing this on your non-Shelby Mustang and it would be a perfect compliment to that Shelby steering wheel if equipped.As far as the install with the Shelby cars, well, honestly guys, this one really couldn't get much easier. Simply remove the factory shift knob, spinning it in a counter-clockwise motion, grab your new Shelby knob, install in a clockwise motion and you're pretty much done. Now I will suggest using the smallest amount of blue Loctite in order to help keep the knob in place and facing the right direction. However, do not use the red Loctite, as you're going to have a very difficult time removing that knob in the future. Again, expect a very soft one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, maybe a few minutes from start to finish. So if you're looking for an OE replacement or backup for the factory shift knob in your Shelby, you'll definitely want to check out the Ford GT350 shift knob right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

GT 350 replacement shift knob
Fantastic fit and finish. Love the styling and feel of this shift knob. Best stick shift knob I’ve ever used hence why I bought another. Only complaint is I wish it was a suede wrap not leather. The leather gets worn easily.Helpful (0)

Will NOT fit GT models!!!!
After reading all of the reviews, I am shocked anyone is recommending this shift knob for GT model Mustangs. You CAN tap it with a 12mm x 1.25 tap. It WILL thread on properly. Here is the problem; you WILL NOT be able to put the car in REVERSE. It threads down too far. You can thread it on less than halfway but the knob sits way too high. If you have a GT mustang and want a GT350 shift knob, this one is not for you. Buy the Billet replica. 3 stars because it's not the fault of the product.Helpful (8)

This shift knob makes me feel like I am ripping around in a new Shelby mustang. IG: s550_eco_briggsHelpful (6)

I bought this before the direct fit version was created and that is why I am giving it a 4 star rating. If I didn't have the tap and die set already this part would have been impossible to put on. I love this part though. It looks and feels great. I would suggest for anyone to get this part if they don't mind the work or just get the new direct fit knob.Helpful (7)

Gotta tap that
Great feeling knob. Good cross between an aftermarket, taller knob. And the stock knob with leather. Feels great. You do have to drill and tap it out.Helpful (6)
Would AM be able to thread this for me to fit a steeda Tri ax on a 2017 GT?
Unfortunately, we would not be able to perform specific threading to fit onto the steeda tri ax shifter for the 2017 GT.
will this fit a 2016 GT
The Ford GT350 Replacement Shift Knob will only fit a 15-17 GT350
Will this shifter fit on a 2017 GT with the Barton Hybrid 3 shifter? In Stephanie's build video, she put it on her 17 GT with the Barton H-3 shifter. Thanks.
The GT350 Knob features a specific thread pattern that is only for the GT350 and GT350R models. In order for this knob to fit on a factory GT/EcoBoost/V6 shifter or an aftermarket shifter like the Barton Hybrid, you would need to modify the knob to make it work with the thread pattern featured on a Non-GT350 shifter.
How much does it weigh? Is it considered a weighted shifter?
The weight of this shift knob is .0452 pounds and it is not considered a weighted shifter.
Can this shift knob fit on a Mustang GT manual transmision?
The Ford GT350 Replacement Shift Knob (15-17 GT350) will not work on a GT model as they feature a 12mm x 1.25 thread pattern instead of the 10mm x 1.25 thread pattern the GT350 has.
Unfortunately, since the shift knob thread pattern of a 11-17 GT is different compared to the thread pattern featured on a 15 GT350/GT350R, this will not fit properly on a Non-GT350 Mustang. In order to make this fit on a Mustang that features a 12mmx1.25 thread pattern, you would basically need to drill out and re-tap the threads.
