Reproduction VW Dealer Sports Walnut Gear Shift Knobs for ’68-’79 Beetles and Karmann Ghia.

  • The knob is genuine solid American Black Walnut and being a natural product the grain pattern and colour shades will vary.
  • The walnut is finished with two coats of  a semi transparent hard wearing wood wax/oil to enhance its natural grain and texture.

Due to the many variations in monitors and browsers as well as the wood grain and natural shade variations, product images may appear different on different monitors. Computer monitors are not all calibrated equally and colour reproduction on the internet is not precise. Since it is not possible to guarantee our products will look the same on all computers, we do not guarantee that what you see accurately portrays the colour of the actual product.
