my buddy had a 73 SS factory 4 speed, and his stock knob was the round black with white lettering. I don't know if round white, with the black lettering, was an option from the factory or not??

Here's a link to a survivor car featured in super chevy. I talked to the owner once about the shift knob, I seem to remember him saying they were not round, by that I mean spherical. I think they were tapered at the bottom (threaded) end and perhaps leather or vinyl covered. If you can get in touch with him perhaps he could provide a photo.

If you blow up the interior shot it looks like a round black ball, not a tapered one that's like a 70's firebird or camaro.

Yep, I see a stitch there too. Also looks like there is a plastic insert with the shift pattern on it instead of being printed on it. the plastic insert looks similar to the Trans am knob insert, but the knob does look more round than a firebird knob. They have the pontiac knob on ebay a lot.

Looks like you need this. The pattern could probably be changed but the knob itself looks correct to me. It's tapered but just barely.

This is a subject up for discussion for multiple GM cars. Depending on tranny, shifters, and consoles or not there are a variety of 3 diffrent shifter balls to my knowledge. One with lift, one without, one hard plastic uncovered. Would be nice to know for future refrence. This can help splain a tiny bit...

Well from 72 to 77 I've seen that on in Novas, Chevelles, Camaros, and Monzas, so I'd say you are safe to go with it. I'd change the shift indicator to one without the "lift". Unless yours has a lift. I know lift started on 72 Camaros and 75' Novas but not sure when they stopped and early Chevelles had lift, the sticks were straight.

Goodness, look at this mess...

Very informative even though it's a bit off topic. Goes to show how unsimple stock shifters can be.

I really like the look of the tube ones with the lift, over the round mashed in the middle with hurst or muncie stamped on them. I've not decided on one myself yet but I'm a sucker for mopar pistol grips.

Like this one, however I'm not sure how it will look with a console...
