3-speed shifter knob
 
Does anyone know where I can find an original shifter knob for a 3-speed transmission off of a 1979 C7? Thanks.

I have searched everywhere for a 3 speed patterned knob for my '73 CJ5. Here is the only site I found, but I did not care for the style and they are not original.

LiteGrip

I ended up going going with one of these labels instead, which I liked the look of better anyway.

I think I still have my shift knob for my 79, it never had the shift pattern on it. It was just a black rubber leather simulated knob.

There was no pattern on the original knob.

Those are nice stickers though but I wonder what 3 speed mates to a dana 300

Hurst makes a 3 speed knob I think it looks sweet.

I ordered mine from 4wd or quadratec, can't remember now. I had red a thread somewhere saying that some people were getting lucking and getting the shifter pattern on the knob even though they say "no pattern." Mine came with the pattern in it. I can't say if you would have the same luck or not.

Bruce does some very nice work...I had him make a knob for my Dana 300 to "match" my Hurst shifter...

Reviving this thread. I am also looking for the factory "simulated leather" grip shift knob. Does anyone have one they'd like to sell or know where to find one? This is the only picture I could find to show. Austin Jeeps was trying to have reproduction ones made, but it never panned out.

what is the thread size on a 79??

Wow man, those look awesome! I need to get myself a set! I was deciding between something like those and the typical pool ball knobs.

Just thought I'd share my shifters. Believe it or not same Jeep old picture, and rebuilt picture. Old shifter has L,1,2,3, and R. The new shifter knob is a Jegs pistol grip shifter and is quite nice and comfortable, just a bit of a knuckle buster with a T-18 granny low gear! Im sure the old picture will get some laughs with the optional gas tank in the passenger seat!
