I need a wiper knob and a shifter knob for a '51 Champion automatic. Don't need to be perfect, just decent as they'll be used to make molds for new ones. Anybody have them?

Last ones I got were from SASCO. Shrocks may be producing them. Not in their current list. Worth asking.

Well most of you saw the pic of the Ruby Red steering wheel in Tom's 51 coupe. I have a friend who can cast the knobs in the same red. Tom talked about doing that but never got around to it, so I thought I'd try to make it happen.

I believe that wheel is a Shrock product. Want it to match? Go to the source.

You could make a Wiper knob a lot easier by getting a New 530152 "Headlights" or a 530154 "Fog" and modifying the marking to a "W".

The wiper knob is mounted on top of the dash in '51, Rich.

Tom was working with the Shrocks long ago but that never came to fruition. I have a guy that can cast the knobs, I just need some old ones to start with.

OK, my bad you're right Matt, so then just buy a 291209X1 Tan, 2 Black , or 3 Gray!

I have the knobs if you don't find them. I'd love to see a semi clear/ pearl white 56 Hawk steering wheel!!

This never happened as I was never able to come across any used knobs to make molds from.

That said, Jim McCuan was the one that was going to do this. He's jlmccuan on the forum. Send him a PM.

Are they on the dash?
A shifter knob I won't have because I have a 52 steering col. but I might have the wiper knob. if I do do I get 1 of your new ones?
