    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.

    relocate O/D button to the dash or? could the O/D button be moved to the dash area by the shifter?

    yankees03

    • Yea, you can put it anywhere, but why? Essentially, you are just replacing an old knob. The switch fits into the new one. Remember this, it is a factory wire harness and is designed to go in the handle. They don't use too much extra wire. To relocate it you will probably have to splice in your own wire to legnthen it for relocation. I'm not saying it will, but if you made even the slightest mistake in the splice, you will have to take it back apart. If you have some of the luck I do, It'll be dark, cold, and raining!

    Paint? I know alot like it the way it is, but i like the look of my black shifter.But, I like the style of this one better. Does this take paint? If it will, any certain kind since its the polished alum?

    Blayne

    • well prep work is a MUST!!! can not state that enough. scuff the whole thing with fine steel wool. use a oil grease and wax paint prep (available at places like auto zone etc.) then choose the paint you want. I would use something like SEM. prob go with semi-gloss not gloss or black. but that's up to you. remember nice warm temp when painting. use light mist coats, not heavy....!!!! take your time and the results will show! take a look on youtube, some great how-to paint videos. Good luck and be sure to post pics when done...love to see finished project.

      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

      Stylish,comfortable and classy addition

      The new shifter looks great and it's perfect being able to angle the shift handle slightly. Feeding the OD wires through was a little tricky and I almost sheared off the tiny wires on the first try, other than that it was a very straight forward install especially if you loosen the center console to move it back a little to aid in getting to the OD connector.

      Billet T-Handle Shift Knob

      Love how this made my interior "pop" along with a few other billet items. This shift knob was easy to install and I like the OD button in the front. Feels good in your hand.

      Nice Upgrade

      Definitely cleaned up the interior well, wanted a 94-98 auto T-handle but it doesnt have the overdrive button on it so I went with this one. Money well spent, only had on for a week but no issues with it coming loose or anything yet.

      Shift knob

      This shift know is made very well and simple to install it looks great and give the car that interior custom look. The down side is it is not polished but im still pleased with the product. It works for now but will be looking for a polished one in the future.

      Race car look feel!

      When screwing in the set screw of the new T-Handle it may not grab the shifter rod firmly if you have it at the end of the rod that has a flat portion on one side. So you may need to turn the handle away from this flat area to get a firm grip with the set screw. I faced my T-Handle more towards the driver seat giving it more of a ergonomic feel and flare appeal style.

      Solid addition

      This piece is solid aluminum, not coated plastic. I was surprised by weight both in the box and when installed in the car. Feels much better and secure than the stock plastic handle. If you've got the overdrive feature in your mustang prepare for a little more work however. I'd say it took about an hour and a half cause my overdrive button was stuck in the stock handle. Had to carefully get it out.
