Packard Gear shift Knob

Post by Lee Davis » Tue May 04, 2021 6:35 am

I just acquired a 1937 115c coupe and the car came with a glass door knob in place of the normal gear shift knob. I removed it and got online to see about finding an original, to no avail. So, being a woodworker, I made a new one from walnut. Here is a picture just after varnishing. Has a sleeve insert to match the thread size of the lever (5/16-24). Original knobs seem to be non existent. LBD
