I did this. It’s a Mustang **** converted to fit the SHO.you have to trim the whit plunger inside the shifter. There is a better tutorial from another member. I’ve been away from this forum for a while and can’t remember his handle right now. But it’s here.

Thanks for the info, but I would be highly surprised if an auto **** for a gen 4 would work on a stick on a gen 1!

You know when I saw the black **** above I thought to myself, “*******, you should have looked to see what year/gen he had.”

Any Mustang k n o b will screw right on but the problem is that the SHO k n o b has deeper threading. With the Mustang k n o b there will be a gap at the boot if you don't get creative. Here are some pics of what I did to get rid of the gap.

If you can find a real Mustang k n o b in actual black leather instead of the charcoal gray it will look really good. I have an 80s GT k n o b in my white 89 at the moment. I've also had a Ford Performance SVO Hurst style k n o b in my 91+ before.

The one I got did say it was black, but I'll have to see it in person to confirm it isn't just a dark grey.

I like the spacer idea. I will most likely be heading over to Ace for that Hillman!
