Ruckstell made an axle for model A's also. It could be for that.

Are they rare i have never saw one like that ?
The shifters i have seen have always been the tapered ones like on the cars

I do not see them very often but I have seen them mounted in TT's. That is an "early" design much akin to the Hall-Scott shifter. Some, if not all of the 3 point mounting shifters are reverse of the later style in that forward is Ruckstell and back is Ford direct. Can you post a photo of the mounting end ?

That is a early Ruckstell "Bulldog" shifter. They are one piece steel, sometimes I find them in bronze and they polish up very nice. They mount the same as other shifters, with a square hole.

There must be something wrong with me, but I can't make much out of that photo. Nice pic of the box, however. I would actually like to see what it is. I tried blowing it up, but it is too low resolution.

Pretty sure the bronze or brass versions were reproductions made by Max Edmonds.
