This is going to sound weird but I've seen this in person. The shift knob on my DHG #2634 has a raised twist around the lower part below the ball of the knob (still part of the shift knob though) I was in San Diego yesterday and saw a True Blue Bullitt in the hotel parking lot. Took a close look at the shift knob on it and it was perfectly straight. :???: What gives? Has anyone else seen differences between the stock shift knobs of different Bullitts? Did they actually twist the aluminum on mine so the shift pattern lined up straight? It won't matter too much longer as I'm waiting for my MGW shift knob with serial number but this is strange.

BTW: I left a business card under the wiper with the BullittClub address hoping the owner will check it out. :wink:

I have seen this condition. Someone overtorqued the shift knob. Take it to the dealer and discuss the issue with them. They should repair it.

How about a pic? I would just like to see a "twisted knob."

Mines twisted, thought that it was normal. I like the twisted look. I guess though it's gonna be hell to take off when they put my Steada tri-axe on!

I’ve got to get a digital camera so it’s not a pain in the rear to post pics! I’ll try and post something this weekend. I agree with 1796, this is going to be hard to get off when my MGW shift knob comes in.

It has to be a styling detail. The twist is uniform from top to bottom, and there are no sharp edges. I have had a few compliments about it during the very few times that I was not furiously shifting and had my hand off of it.

That's what mine looks like! The twist does seem somewhat uniform but is just slightly rough. Also the aluminum varies in thickness at different points down the twist.

Hey Mr. T,
What kind of tool does Ford use when putting these knobs on? Must be a BIG wrench?

I have a DHG, and mine is smooth as a baby's bottom, and aligned correctly, too.....

I've been saying it for months about mine. I guess its NICE to know a few others had Godzilla working that shift!
