WHITE SHIFTER KNOB

First of all I just want to say (man I love my car). It is just 6 months old and I have 3900 miles on it. But here is my question: I have a M6 V-6 and I want to put a white shift knob for that old look, not to mention how cool it would look with the black leather interior. I have not been able to find just a white knob to change without changing any shifter. Plus the ones I see have reverse all the way over to the right, which in my car it is all the way over to the left. Any help would be appreciated from you camaro guys & gals.

I know it's not exactly what you're looking for... but consider it. The feel is SO much better than stock.

We have been over this at least once... search. YES you can use the stock knoba nd it looks EXACTLY like OEM, stock knob and boot. No one would know by looking.

Here is the ball Hurst provide:



YES you can use the white HURST ball on the M6 V6 BUT the engraved H pattern is wrong due to the location of reverse being different V6 to V8.

IMO the white ball is ugly in the all black interior. I opted the extra $50 for this one. Looks much better and there is no redundant H pattern on the V8 and the issue of it being wrong on the V6 is gone since... there is no engraved pattern.

Just to clarify for the OP'r; the pics we've shown here are the Hurst shifter kit with the Hurst flat stick and knobs. The upright shaft in the Hurst kit is in 2 pieces. They bolt together just below the boot in the picture. The kit comes with the chrome flat upper stick (shown) AND a 2nd upper stick that is designed to take the stock knob (not shown). That way you get the stock look but the hurst feel. Besides the obvious difference in the stick, the connection point for the 2 knobs is NOT the same. The stock knobs press onto the top of the stick (smooth tapered stick with a keyway to prevent rotation) while the hurst knobs shown thread onto the flat stick.

I'm sure someone out there makes a que-ball style knob that simply presses onto the stock stick. I just haven't seen one. The main problem is the boot. In the stock set-up the boot is zip-tied to the chrome bezzle at the bottom of the stock knob. It's all one piece (that bezzle and the knob). Remove the knob and you need to do something with the boot. It doesn't have finished edges and the stock stick is not pretty - so you don't want it exposed. Hope that helps.

Wow.... I'm glad we're talking about shifters here

I have the Hurst shifter in my SS with the white ball and like it cause it's old school. Check Hurst's web site as the most likely have the set up for the V6 now since they just did a Hurst V6 Camaro

Agreed...That is why I also have the white ball. It does give it that old school,nostalga look.
