Looking for Console Radio Knobs

I am looking for a good pair of radio knobs for a console mounted radio. I am going concours and need a near perfect pair. Does anyone have some? Please let me know and how much. Thanks, Mike

I have a set of the outer large NOS ones if you need them. I paid $55 for them so $60 delivered is your price. They are perfect and in the old Ford box. PM me.

Jason, what are the outer large ones? Are you talking about the cone-shaped pieces?

Arlie

The cone shaped pieces are the inner knobs (normally base, etc.). Then you have the long outer knobs that tune and turn the radio on.

Jason - good price on knobs. When I was looking, $120 was the going price, if you could even find a set.

Arlie, yes the cone shaped outer ones.

Paul

you have the inner and outer mixed up. inner is the volume and outer is the fade/treble.

Jason, are the cone shaped knobs the same as non console mounted radio knobs. I have a complete AM radio, but with the short knobs. Thanks, Mike

nope console cone shaped ones are longer. you will also need long console knobs.

I agree with the picture idea. I thought I had it right??? My car is in storage so I can't take a picture but now I am really interested.

Are we lost in a multi dimensional world here?

We all agree the solid knobs control the on/off/volume and tuning and the cone shape piece does something else. But here’s the confusing part. The long knob fits inside the cone, making it the inner piece but it also sticks out further from the radio making it the outer piece. The large cone is on the outside of the knob where they connect to the radio making it the outer piece but because it is shorter it is also the inner piece.

Is that clear?

How about just "knobs" and "cones".

Keep it clean.

from the auction above the outer knobs are the ones on the bottom. when looking at the knobs as if they were installed this is how I get the outer/inner descriptions. let's not make this more difficult than it really is.
