    Review & Install Video

    Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m taking a look at a part that will add a subtle touch of Billet customization to the interior of any automatic 87-04 Mustang thanks to this T handle shift knob. T handle shifters have been in the interiors of Mustangs since the 60’s, and now thanks to this Billet piece, your ride can share the same classic styling, all while still maintaining your overdrive function. The name says it all: Billet. This knob is manufactured from 100% aircraft grade Billet aluminum, and is sure to last the life of your Mustang. It also features a very comfortable grip, and a nice aluminum finish, which is a great improvement over the cheap factory knob. Depending on whether or not your car is equipped with overdrive, your install time may vary a little, we’ll call it 45 minutes just to be safe. You will need some allen wrenches, a torc set, some wire cutters, and a zip tie. Don’t worry, you’re not cutting any wires but you will have to relocate your overdrive button. Once you get past that, it’s a piece of cake. Now this shift knob looks great on its own, but if you’re like me, and you’re always searching for more ways to customize your ride, then you might want to check out one of our polished Billet interior dress up kits, or even a set of chrome gauge bezels to complete the look. So if you’re tired of that boring factory shift knob and you want to replace it with something that really shines, you’ll definitely want to check out this retro T-handle shift knob for your ride.

    Modern Styling. Replace your boring black OEM automatic shift knob with a polished Billet T-Handle for great modern styling. This knob will give your automatic Mustang the high-end look it deserves and it matches our other billet accessories perfectly.

    Billet Aluminum Construction. Machined from aircraft quality 6061 T6 billet aluminum this automatic shift knob features a comfort grip that is designed to fit your hand perfectly, and features a smooth polished finish.

    Compatible with Overdrive Button. To accommodate the factory overdrive button located on the stock shift handle, this T-Handle shift knob features a convenient billet relocation bracket.

    Application. This Billet T-Handle Shift Knob is designed for use on all 1987 to 2004 Mustangs equipped with an automatic transmission, with or without overdrive.

      Hot shifter

      Happy we changed to a modern shiter but have a cloth or small towel to cover it when parking in the sun, gets real hot to touch until the car cools down. Also did not run the O/D thru the shaft yet as it didn't pay to open up the whole base. Made a functional O/D delete instead, see photo.

      Nice upgrade.

      It is a smaller handle so large hands won't like it. If you're replacing your shifter bezel you will need one of these. Removing your stock T handle will damage your O/D OFF button, most likely. So you will probably want to think ahead and invest in one of those. However once you install all three of those upgrades you will love the look and the performance. Save your parts from the old one you will most likely maybe need the spring and quite possibly the set screw

      Dont buy

      Product was really good at first but the push button gets stuck all the time. I have to spray the button with dry lubricant every month but even then if you push it a little too hard it can get stuck inside.

      Billet T Handle for AOD.

      Recieved the billet t handle and found it a little small for my hands but ok... guess it just takes getting used to,so I installed it on my AOD mustang and it looks awesome with the black interior and serves its purpose compared to the broken stock one that needed replacement....nice improvement to the interior.....next move is purchasing and replacing the OD switch, then installing it on the billet OD housing that came with the T handle....thanks American Muscle.

      Almost perfect

      There were no videos I could find on how to install it, but it wasn't too hard to figure out. The problem was when I tried to tighten it on my shifter; the little screw provided did not fit as the original indent/hole in my shifter stick wasn't deep enough. So the billet handle couldn't actually tighten. And now I need to drill a hole to fit the screw. But other than that, great product.

      nice but .......

      very nice product but very hard to install if you install it direct from the box the handle will be easy to twist and remove , the provided screw do not hold since the original shaft is not round but oval. the lack of a spring for the button can sometime cause problem (something they should had to it) in my case to make sure the handle stay put i had to add a piece of rubber on the shaft to stop the handle to move around

      30 minute install...that's cute.

      If youve never changed a shift knob on an automatic before this isn't going to be a 30 minute job. I have never done this before and had to reference 3 different YouTube videos. My O/D button wasn't just laying in there. It was zip tied to the stick. Then I had to unbolt the center console in order to get the O/D button to side out because you can't really unplug the cable unless it's unbolted. Once I got everything disassembled installing the actual knob onto the stick was a breeze. It was the prep and the reassemble that took 1.5 hours to do. It looks good. Especially paired with a shifter bezel. My only complaint other than the install is that finger prints show up on it really bad but it's chrome so that should be expected.

      Shifter is great

      Bought this to change the look of the bland sn95 interior. Looks great. OEM is a little hard to get off. Gotta yank on it. I ripped my overdrive wires out but that's the fault of the original equipment. The new part can be turned any way you want. Just saw a ratchet on here I'm getting so this is going on my v6 now. Love the feel and the look. MAKE SURE. You don't put the top part down too far or the button won't lock. Just keep your Allen wrench handy and test after install
