The ONLY measurement you need to know is the ONLY one you didn't show. That's the measurement of the female thread inside. You need a vernier caliper to measure it. I don't have one either, but Home Depot, Lowe's, your friendly auto dealership service dept or any Automotive sales store can probably help you. In a store take it to the plumbing dept and try it until it fits. Of course it might be a metric size so don't force it.
(D) is for Drive, or 5th Gear. It fits a standard 5 speed stick shift. I have a 5 speed on my Nissan 4x4.
Value: Call your local auto salvage store and ask them how much a used 5 speed knob costs. About a dollar, maybe 5, I'd guess.
This knob doesn't have any threads.
So much for an early retirement!
Thanks for the help.
Must have a set screw near the collar. Inside measurement is still needed to ensure proper fitting.
This was a 4 speed with Over Drive That is why the D in white circle
I had a 59 Ford with overdrive. It was a 3 speed column shift. Overdrive on a Ford is applied with the Accelerator (right foot), not with a gear shift. Fred might be correct. There are many different cars and all have different marks on them. I know about Fords, Fred knows about his reply.
Wow. That's a ton of information on this knob. Thanks !
Lloyd Levine , How did you come about finding the knob?
Garage sale. I thought it looked old so I picked it up.
Any idea to tell what make car used this item ? The information you provided mentioned Ford, Studebaker , Nash, and other car manufacturers.
Thanks again for the info.
Lloyd Levine , The design is such you would be looking around 1970 - 80s from the shape . Google has a shift knob site and you can also check the AACA Library in PA
