Gold nismo shift knob

Postby nickCN7 » Wed Oct 23, 2019 9:30 pm

Been looking for this one for a while. I've only seen it once for sale on a really sketchy Japanese auction site for about 7000 euros (the listing was deleted and i cant remember the site it was on). I'm not sure if these even exist or they're just a myth but if anyone has any info on it, I'm all ears. Don't have any photos of it but it just looked like the general tear drop style shifter shape.

Hey Nick!

Welcome aboard. I'm going to guess, based on my 16+ years of messing with all things Nissan / NISMO, that it wasn't a legit NISMO item.

I can't recall ever seeing one in gold, and to my recollection, the "dildo" knob shape (typically black or white resin) are the only real NISMO units I've seen.

Older logo - Could be legit from the 80's or early 90's. Can't say I've ever seen that design or shape.

Certainly could be a knockoff, as the logo could be easily copied...
