Hand made wooden gear knobs for VW buses.


At long last.....you can now buy a wooden gear knob for your Type 2 (Bay window) VW bus, camper, van or your Beetle.

T25 owners note:
At this time I am unable to make gear knobs for T25's. However I am looking into the tooling costs so watch this space!!

Not only that but there are a variety to choose from. Three different styles and three different wood types. You can have a plain one or one with a badge on.

Also, if you really don't like the styles here, I will make one to your design (within reason!!)
