70's era gear shift knob.

     I was going thru my garage, and found the original shift knob for my 77 TransAm (4 speed)
Anyway; I no longer have a trans am; so if someone wants it -- paypal me (josh
at j assing dot com) $10 and i'll send it off via priority mail.
it's in great shape.
Please email; as I don't monitor this NG.

It can be sent via regular mail for a lot less :). I'd think about it if this were the case. Joe--ASE Certified Parts Specialist & 10th Ann.Club Tech Director '80 Carousel Red Turbo T/A, 27k orig.

LOL!
60 bux for that.. wow. I guess I just dont see the 60 value in it... besides, I had it on ebay for $5 min bid (including shipping) for 7 days and not one bid on it..
so there it is.. then the guy that bought it can make a quick & easy 50 off it.. good for him. I stick to my deals.

???? You can buy it repop for that price.

The repops are nothing more than used auto shift knobs converted and the center medallion isn't "correct".
If you find them all the time in yards you should be putting them on eBay. The 70-75 style with the raised aluminum insert are pushing $100 now.

To pay that for a shift knob is insane! I can't remember how many of these things I've come across :).
The medallion is repoped too. Joe--ASE Certified Parts Specialist & 10th Ann.Club Tech Director '80 Carousel Red Turbo T/A, 27k orig. '79 "Y89" 400/4 speed 10th Ann. T/A, 57k orig '84 Olds 88 Royale Bgm 2 dr, 307 "Rocket" (lol), 143k and still going....

Joe, my dad used to run across Firebird Hurst shifters all the time in the junkyard in the late 70's. Now those are $75 items. He could have grabbed complete RA IV and 455 HO engines for a couple hundred bucks. Now a 455 HO engine is worth atleast $3500 and the 1971 heads fetch $1500-$2000. A restored 455 HO carb is worth $800-$1000. My dad has a NOS 70-72 455 HO GTO air cleaner that he bought for $20 years ago. Now its probably worth $1500.

The repops I've seen have rounded edges and cheap looking. I'm still waiting for the 70-75 style to be repoped. The one on my 71 T/A has a little wear.

Case in point. The Firebird OEM power antenna relay is like $150 and a couple year part.
The Camaro relay is electrically IDENTICAL and is hidden behind the dash like the Bird. I made one work and you can't tell the difference. Someone gave me 4 OEM NOS ones. LOL.
Ya have to know what will interchange. Also, the repops get better as time goes on.
I remember 10th Anniversary Trans Ams being $1000 used cars when I was in HS back in the late 80's. One of the guys in my group sold a rotten shell of a 10th from FL for $1000!!!

Priority mail =$4.30.
Parcel Post, half of that and will get to you a day later at most... Joe--ASE Certified Parts Specialist & 10th Ann.Club Tech Director '80 Carousel Red Turbo T/A, 27k orig. '79 "Y89" 400/4 speed 10th Ann. T/A, 57k orig '84 Olds 88 Royale Bgm 2 dr, 307 "Rocket" (lol), 143k and still going....

Sorry, Joe, but I work for the USPS and there is no way Parcel Post (ground) can get across the country one day later than Priority (air). HD

Priority mail: Ship on Saturday, there by Monday, Tuesday the latest.
I ship engine parts and small engine stuff to my friend in MS from NYC all the time.
Within 5 days max (most times sooner), using Parcel post or media, he's holding the stuff.
And, it depends on destination :). Ground to PA lets say from NYC, is almost the same as air to PA from NYC. A day at most difference?
You could ship that knob for about $3 across the country and be holding it in a week's time. Joe--ASE Certified Parts Specialist & 10th Ann.Club Tech Director '80 Carousel Red Turbo T/A, 27k orig.

Ahh... As you said, it depends on where you live and how far it's going. If you live in a large city near a Bulk Mail Center, (BMC), shipping by ground will be fairly quick. On the other hand, if the BMC is a long ways away, you add time. For instance, I live in Southern Oregon. If I ship by ground to LA, the package gets trucked all the way up to Seattle, the nearest BMC, gets sorted, then trucked all the way down to LA. But if I ship by air, it flies from my local airport, directly down to LA, nonstop. That equals a lot of time saved. And you might be surprised by how little you save by shipping by ground at times. Often times a dollar or less. HD
