Few things represent performance more than someone who can masterfully handle a stick shift. In the smash hit by The Rip Cords, Hey Little Cobra, the concept of a quality shift was eloquently expressed, “I hung a big shift, and I got into high, and when I flew by the Stingray, I waved bye-bye.”
Rowing a manual transmission through the gears requires a comfortable shifter knob, and luckily for the third pedal crowd, American Powertrain has introduced a new line of five- and six-speed shifter knobs that not only provide a secure grip but also look great.
The billet shifter knobs are a 2-inch diameter design, which offers an ergonomic fit for most enthusiasts. American Powertrain engraved the shift pattern into the top of each knob, and along the passenger’s side of the knob is its #SavetheStick logo.
The shifter knobs come in the traditional white color, but polished black and gunmetal black are available. Each shifter knob has a 3/8”-16 thread and a 3/8”-24 adapter to fit nearly every shifter lever on the market.
While searching for a new shifter knob, it would be a great time to review the shifter lever needs of your Mopar. American Powertrain has bargains on several shifter levers from Clayton Machine Works and Lokar, which are compatible with bench seats, bucket seats, and console cars. American Powertrain carries several Lokar shifter boots and trim rings to finish the shifter installation.
Lastly, if you are looking for a new transmission, American Powertrain has several options to suit the specific needs of the enthusiast. The TKX 5-speeds fit a range of muscle car-era Mopars, and American Powertrain even has a 6-speed option for the Hemi and Hellcat contingent.
