yes, with lettering i believe on the 6 cylinder cars. (I think)

I think that's correct, lettering on the more exotic models such as Vitesse and GT6 and plain round on the Heralds.

Gearlevers come up all the time, depends on what condition you require (last one looks nice but not exorbitant):

But try and find another is anything approaching that condition. Always the problem with original parts, they were either thrown away when replacced with aftermarket parts, or worn out so replaced. Or just worn out and still in use. 

Must say, I think you could get a tatty wheel and spend some mody on it and get something decent. Probably.

It's got large cracks in it. Look at the ends of the spokes where they meet the centre hub - at least two are split. Couple of hundred pounds, maybe, but he's being very optimistic at that price.

Oh Gawd we're back there again. 

I think we can rule out the transparent variety from that selection... :)

Was able to acquire this. Shift pattern isn’t painted but it’s a start. Now all I need is the actual chrome lever.

A steady hand and good paint will soon touch that in. I hope that wasn't the one from eBay that the seller was asking over £40 for?  :)

Incidentally there's a slight difference in gear levers between the Herald and GT6; Herald is originally 121487 and the GT6 is 146906, and the latter is possibly bent at more of an angle - very slightly, but enough to make it an individual part that anoraks might notice.

Actually it's quite a noticeable difference in angle when you put a Spitfire/GT6 gear lever next to a Herald/Vitesse one. Dolomite ones are even straighter than Herald.
