    I'm assembling a collection of Amco shift knobs, which were very popular aftermarket accessories for sports cars in the 60's and 70's.

    They were advertised in Car and Driver and Road & Track, and sold by imports parts houses and mail order places like Vilem B Haan and MG Mitten.

    As you can imagine, the Ferrari knobs are maybe the hardest to find- I've only found one, and I need a second one. Can be walnut or leathergrain (i.e. vinyl).

    You can see the style of the Ferrari logo on the photo- a yellow circle with horse- no text.

    Thanks!

    Still looking for wood and chrome Amco knob for Ferrari with yellow horse logo.

    (I've found most of the others, as you can see...)

    Dude!

    Congrats and good luck in your search.....

    Looking at your collection brought back memories, seeing the original Firebird emblem.
    I drove a '67 convertible thru High School and the original logo was used in a couple of Art Class projects!

    Damn, the Pontiac GTO knob was $30 and you paid $200!
    That's some Prancing Pony tax, right there....:rolleyes:

    Hi Paul,
    I recently acquired a collection of 80+ AMCO, NOS/NIB Shift knobs. I don't have any Ferrari specific models but thought you might be interested in expanding your collection. I'm new on this forum. You can find my contact info on my Facebook business page, Bill Miller Car Finder LLC. Hope to hear from you soon.
