Keep in mind these are made of resin for the most part and require an adapter to fit. They do look good, but having a hard time with the idea of replacing the original properly threaded aluminum ball with plastic.

Is it just a gt500 shift ball ? The adapter where could I source it ?

They come with different threading. You just to order the correct one. Somebody from Florida just bought one a few months ago and posted pictures.

This one looks right, altho 1/4" diameter threads seems small https://www.calcarcover.com/product/rally-red-6-speed-shift-knob-by-speed-dawg/3006

1/4" is way to small. My recollection is that it's more like M12x1.25. It's posted somewhere in this Forum, so check it before you order.

Thanks for the help , Their website gives you models and apparently the GT is 3/8-16

I looked on the Speed Dawg site. They list the thread for the "Short Shifter" for the GT as 3/8-16, BUT the thread for the stock shifter they list as M12x1.75. Which shifter do you have?

There should not be any difference. You use the same stock ball on both shifters.

I’ll check my stock shifter for you to be sure.

I prefer the “Indiana Jones, Raiders of the Lost Ark” - 3rd degree burns from the shift knob when I hop in into a Texas car after it sits in the 110 degree parking lot while I eat lunch.IMG_5111.jpeg
