Early 50’s steering column gear shifter
I figured I’d write about this item separate from the other parts I posted. Now this is a strange item offered back in the early 50’s. A steering column gear shifter!? I’ve never seen one of these before? Have you? It is a very interesting aftermarket item offered back then. There is also a letter from Volkswagen stating they don’t approve of this product. It’s basically a disclaimer. It’s dated February 14th 1952. What is interesting is the letter is in English but the product and installation information is in German! Go figure!? Though a pretty cool item to have in your “Private CollectionS".
