Shifter Knob Question

I have a weird question. I am looking for a shifter knob with a certain pattern that is hard to find. My shifter pattern is: from left to right on the top: R, 1, 3. and on bottom from left to right is 2 and 4. Can anyone help me out with where I could find a knob? When people get in and look at the knob that is on there now, it is not correct. Also, can this pattern tell someone who knows trannys what kind of tranny is in my jeep? It is an 81 cj5, but I don't know if it is the original tranny or not.

Look for mid to late 80's VW's. I just sold a 88 vw fox that had that exact shifter pattern and i know other models with the 4 speed used the same knob. Hope that helps.

Have you tried e-bay for the shift knob? They often have them for sale there but I'm not sure of your shift patern.

My sand rail has a VW bus tranny in it with that same pattern. It sounds like VW to me. You can find that knob in a VW catalogue, magazine.

Mid 70's Corvettes had that shift pattern At least the 75 does and I think that the 68 we had also used that shift pattern.

Yup, original trans. Its an SR-4. The shifter has an arrow on it indicating the down and over for the reverse. In my opinion, us the few bucks you'd spend on that shift knob, to go toward another transmission; this comming from a T-5 owner so you know I think its real junk. The reverse position is too close to first and its the shifter is sloppy.

I believe that 80-something model ford escorts had that shift pattern too. Actually, I think it's used in a LOT of 4-speeds. Check on ebay. Guaranteed to find something there.
