    Hi Everybody,

    good thing on the Corona-Shit - lot's of time for cleaning, rebuilding, and searching parts for my A108.
    This time I'm looking for the rubber boot that sits on the column shift lever for my 3-Speed.

    Didn't find it anywhere. The only close thing is for 55-57 Chevys but I think it's too small.
    It's about 1,2" high and 1" wide

    Does anyone know if there's a repro of this or another rubber boot from anything else that may fit?

    Thanks

    Kai

    Checking GM stuff could be an idea.

    I tried already all Mopars: vans, passenger cars and trucks... but didn't find it

    Did you look at Steele Rubber website? Here's a link and please let us know a part number if you find it so others can reference it if they have it...

    Yes... they all don't fit :-( The problem is, the base is rectangular and all I found that is close to these proportion is not long enough to cover the joint.

    Closest is the one for the 55-57 GM, but it's only half of the length:
