      Review & Installation Video

      Hey everyone I’m Justin with 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.

        Dont waste your money

        Its a nice look but the screws dont hold the handle tight, handle moves then you cant change gears, ends up wearing out and the handle doesnt stay on and its a hassle. Just keep your stock handle.

        Nice look

        Ally like the look, installation was a little more challenging than listed in the instructions. Scratch easily, must not have been as careful as needed.

        Great Appearance Functionality Mod

        Billet T-Handle looks good and works great! Gives the Mustang a nice Old School Shifter look.. Installation was a breeze if your mechanically inclined but still pretty easy if your not. Great buy if your looking to give the interior more of an aggressive look.

        Not good fit

        It tool longer to install, then stated in video.. The set screw was hard to get tight,, Handle moved around,, Also has to be perfect to shift gears.. Makes nice look to my 1999 mustang,, also a spring should be included in the kit.

        T-Handle knob Doesn't Fit

        When I tried to install the T-Handle knob to replace my stock 2000 V6 mustang handle knob, the dimensions on the new handle button are not the same as the stock. This caused me a lot of confusion. The new handle wouldn't fit properly so i couldn't change gears until I put my old stock t-handle back on. Also the button kept getting stuck inside the handle knob.
