Has anyone ever seen one of these? If so, any idea where I could find one?

TIA

Hi,
I believe they're no longer available to buy brand new - although could be wrong. I've heard this aspect from various owners looking to replace their worn out ones. Might be some very good condition ones in various collections and sitting unused etc. If it is the case they're not available new anymore then it's a case of waiting till a decent condition one comes up for sale. Trouble there is, this finish just doesn't wear well at all and looks bad once it deteriorates. I've got a deteriorated one here for instance and will most likely have it repainted along with 3 more deteriorated other examples too!

Alternatives are the illuminated 6 Spd manual F10 gearknob or aftermarket options.

Cheers, Dennis!

Thanks Dennis: Once repainted, do they look original? Do you know of a similar product to this that could be purchased new?

Cheers
