Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, here with a couple of classic throwbacks for your S197 Mustangs interior. I’m talking about these retro style 5 speed shift knobs, available in your choice of either white or black fitting all 2005-2010 manual Mustangs. Back in the day in the muscle car era fancy chrome or LED shift knobs were not all the rage, in fact if you owned a hot rod or a Mustang, chances are you’d find something like this white or black resin knob, sitting on top of any toploader equipped 4 speed. Again each knob has been CNC’d from a single block of either white or black resin, and they’re not painted, so you’re not going to have to worry about them chipping off in your hands, that shift pattern has been engraved, so again, not painted, you’re not going to have to worry about messing anything up there. Since these knobs are resin, they’re not going to get quite as hot as a Billet or chrome knob per say, so it’s just something to keep in mind for all my warm weather friends out there. Installing a new shift knob has to be one of the easiest mods to tackle, simply remove the factory shift knob first, install the shift boot retainer, and then screw on the new retro style 5 speed knob. Getting everything installed should only take you a couple of minutes from start to finish. So if you’re looking to give your interior a small dose of that nostalgic styling that seems to work so well on these newer Mustangs, then be sure to check out one of these retro style knobs right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Product is good for a few weeks
Terrible finish on the product it just feels totaly incomplete the edges around the hole in the ball are sharp and uneven the threads do not hold the ball well at all, taking this ball off requires removing the ball and then the threads it leaves powder everywhere becuase it disintegrates as you twist it it's just over all a horible product and I'm very very disappointed I've had better quality knobs for less than 10 dollars save your moneyHelpful (0)

Does this include the shift boot retainer that is shown in the pictures?
Yes, this shift knob does include the shift boot retainer.
Will this know fit an 06 Saleen shifter?
Yes, the Saleen uses the same shifter as the GT so this will indeed fit.
How do you get the shift pattern to face forward while being screwed on tight?
The Modern Billet Retro Style 5-Speed Shift Knob includes a shift boot retainer which you will use to help guide the knob in the appropriate direction. When you have screwed the shift knob on a majority of the way, you will tighten the knob and the shift boot retainer against each other to seal pressure on both components.
Does the shift boot retainer fit on the shifter boot for the 08 Bullitt?
This will fit the Bullitt models as well yes.
Will thus fit a 2007 Shelby GT? (Not GT 500). I do not see Shelby GT listed. Thank you.
The Modern Billet Retro Style 5-Speed Shift Knob will fit the Shelby GT.
Yes the Modern Billet Retro Style 5-Speed Shift Knob will fit on your 2008 Mustang GT as long as it is equipped with a 5-Speed transmission.
We have seen pictures of customers doing manual shift knobs on the Ratchet shifter however we would not be able to confirm the fitment of a manual shift knob fitting on an automatic shifter.
The Modern Billet shift knobs are not weighted.
The Modern Billet Retro Style 5-Speed Shift Knob - White (05-10 GT, V6) will come with a shift boot retainer as stated under the "What's In The Box" section of this page.
