I am looking for an original 1968 GT350 shift knob.  It does not have to be perfect just nice driver quality.  PM me if you have one you are looking to sell.

Thank you,
Corey

Corey,  Found this in my stash yesterday.  I think it's an original, but not 100% sure.  Let me know if you're interested.

Thank you for your reply.  I have already purchased an original knob but I do appreciate you reaching out.

No Problem.  It isn't in the best shape, but it's not doing anyone any good sitting in my attic!

If you are looking for CORRECT it would be the one in the pics below with the FLAT 3. rounded 3s came in  on 69 models. So to be correct you need the much harder to find flat 3 style. Hopefully that is what you have found. Gary

The one I bought is an early 68 knob with the flat 3. It came with the shifter and boot all original FoMoCo stuff in exceptional condition. I paid dearly for it but the shifter in my GT350 is for a 67 so I wanted to get a real replacement.

Corey,

I am preparing a '67 GT500 for sale and it has the wrong shift knob.  Do you have plans for your 67 standard black shift knob?  I could buy a new reproduction for $15 from Brant, but this car has patina and I would prefer a good used one over shiny new.

Troy,

I unfortunately do not have the '67 knob only the '67 shift arm with the Tee handle.  The knob I have is a '68 but I strongly suspect it is an older reproduction.  Once I switch out my shifter assembly I will be trying to find a new home for the '67 shift arm though.
