- How to Install a Retro Style 6 Speed Shift Knob in Your 2011-2012 Mustang
$29.99FREE Shipping on orders over $49
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and as you can see I have a number of different shift knob options, all from Modern Billet™, fitting the 2011 and newer Mustang, available in your choice of either black or white resin, or satin or chrome Billet aluminum. Modern Billet™ is a company that specializes in making a number of different styling accessories for your Mustang. The first two options the bright chrome option, and the slightly more subtle satin option, work very well on the interiors of 2011 and newer cars, both have been CNC’d from a single block of T6 Billet aluminum, and I can tell you that because of this the knobs will have a good weight to them. The second pair of knobs do have more of a retro vibe going on thanks to the old school black or white appearance, these two have been CNC’d from a single bloc of either black or white resin, which is going to make them slightly different to the Billet aluminum knobs, for one, they’re not going to be nearly as heavy as those aluminum knobs, which some people will like while others like myself prefer a knob with a little more weight to it. On the hand those resin knobs aren’t going to get nearly as hot during the summer months or as cold during the winter months. All 4 shift knob options do come with this shift boot retainer which obviously fills the void left by removing the stock shift knob and holds the stock shift boot into place making for a cleaner appearance. As for the install, can’t get much easier here, remove the stock shift knob first, install that shift boot retainer, then screw the new shift knob into place. Getting everything done should only take you about 15 minutes from start to finish. The shifter is oftentimes considered to be the centerpiece in any interior, so if you’re looking to make a visual statement with your shift then be sure to check out one of these 4 options from Modern Billet™ for your 6 speed, right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Nice retro touch
Very happy about the end results. In the dark interior, really makes the shifter the center of attention, as it should be! And the interior LED lights make it stand out even more at night.Helpful (1)

shift pattern painted on or etched? Is the shift pattern on the white shift knob etched into the ball or just painted on?
Etched into the ball
Other than digging up the original purchase order, how do I identify the 401a premium interior?
The 401A Premium Interior package will include a Shaker Pro Audio system with 12 speakers, HD Radio, Memory Driver's Seat (with 2 settings) and mirrors & blind spot information system with cross-traffic alerts.
How much does this shift knob weigh?
Shipped weight is 0.4 lbs.
What makes this not work/fit with the 401a interior package? Is it just needing to use a different boot retainer?
The Modern Billet Retro Style 6-Speed Shift Knob will not fit 401A package Mustangs as the Shifter boot and where the retainer connects are different, preventing this shift knob from being properly installed.
question on the shiny white finish I have a similar white shifter knob from another brand and the shiny finish has worn off. And I've only had it for 2 weeks. Does this shifter knob retain it's shiny white finish?
Yes. The shifter knob is made of a resin and appears to be solid with an etched in shift pattern on the top.
The shift boot retainer included is aluminum.
The diameter is 1-3/4". I own this shift know that i purchased from AM and I love it. The look and the feel is just amazing. The quality is outstanding and the installation is simple. Also, there is a youtube video about installing the shift knob if you are unsure. Hope this helps.
Plastic. I recommend getting the boot retainer at this link: http://www.americanmuscle.com/shift-boot-retainer-0509.html
This Modern Billet shift knob is 1-3/4" in diameter.
