As the title says I see there are GT500 and Super Snake shift knobs but it seems the KR guys have been forgotten once again. Will we ever see one or is it just something to forget altogether?

I'm definitely in for one. Is there a black knob with matte black shift pattern AND a white knob with black shift pattern? Just curious because I think it would hard to see the GT500KR on the knob if it was black on black or even gray on black. I think Iprefer a white knob with black shift pattern. Either way, I want one and thanks for getting these!

The knob will be black with black stripes, but the pattern and logo will be white.

How about a GT-H black and gold shifter ball. There's 21 5 spds out there and I would buy one or two for sure. Sounds like a big opportunity for SPP :D

Seriously, maybe a one off special order?

Thanks Jer,

and if you can arrange for a one off GT-H shifter ball, I'll take it. I know it will cost extra, but it would be worth it. Let me know when it shows up. :)

Any chance of additional colours for the GT500 shift knob? White with Black stripes or Blue with Red stripes ( :) ) would be entirely awesome. Please Thanks!

How about options for those with no stripes on their cars or those with non-OEM stripes styles and colors?

For example, if I had a black GT500 with no stripes, I'd love to have a Shelby GT500 shift knob with no stripes. Black ball with white or gray lettering and cobra.

Another example, if I had a black GT500 with super snake hood and non-OEM color, SS style stripes, I'd love to have a Shelby GT500 shift knob with SS style racing stripes but in my non-OEM stripe color. Note this is different from the Shelby SS shift ball. This is a GT500 with a SS hood and SS style stripes!

I actually fall into the latter category but if that weren't possible, I'd go with the former as it would still work :-) In fact, if both were available, I might buy one of each for variety! Actually I'd buy 2 of each so I had variety and backups!

Thanks!

That is great news! I hope there is flexbility with text and stripes for those of us GT500 (non-super snake) owners who have SS style stripes :-D (ie, "Shelby GT500" with SS style stripes on the shifter knob)

Sorry, this project has been back-burnered a few times as our time is consumed by Alcoas, widebody kits, oil separators, etc.
It's one of those things that sounds easy, but has been a real bear to execute.

I'll announce very loudly when we make progress. I appreciate your patience.
