I have a 78 Conquista with the automatic on the column. The gear select knob is loose and I would like replace it. The factory knob has groves in it and has a chrome end. If anyone knows the part number or can tell me where it find one I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance..Joe

Ya they do come off. Mine did all the time. If its in good condition, just loose, consider doing what I did. Take the knob off, wrap black electrical tape around the end of the shifter 1-2 times depending on how loose the knob is, then put it back on over the tape. Should be tight and if done right no tape will show.

On my column knob. (70) I was able to get a replacement from the help section at the parts store.
I put a small dab of yellow wetherstripping glue on the end of the stalk and let it sit till it got tacky then put the knob on and let it set overnite.
Bad news is the ones at the parts store are black.
