WTB- Deluxe Auto Shifter Color:Aqua

Hi all,

I'm looking for a deluxe shifter knob for my '68 Automatic. I've yet to find one in aqua.

For reference see the interior shot from Jason's Picture Gallery.

If anyone has an extra or can point me to a web site, i'd appreciate it.

Cool

Jeff,

I have researched this and it doesn't look like they are making the aqua. The only option would be to get the parchment and dye it aqua. Sorry that I couldn't help you on this one.

Cheers,

Ron

Thanks Ron. I've searched off and on over the the last 5 years with no luck.

I wonder what it takes for Scott Drake (or others) to make something like this?

Anyone here know how the process works?

Starts maybe with "We have X number of Mustang enthusiasts that need widget XYZ"

Scott Drake crunches numbers and figures it might be a money maker.

Scott Drake gets the licensing from FORD and gets the molds or makes new ones and starts making and selling widget XYZ.

If you have a Deluxe shifter (of any color) send it to me, and I'll dye it aqua for you. You'll find that it will wear quite nicely. I've even done steering wheels that held up for YEARS.

Hi Neil,

I appreciate the offer. Sounds like if I start with a light color (parchment) it will turn out better?
I'll be in touch Neil!!
