I really love the old horn relays with the clear covers. Extra cool.

Do you have a model this came off of? Sure it's not just a standard shift knob that's been covered with leather. Guess could be off a 60 series GX or VX from another market. Just never seen one.

This is the correct shift knob for the 40 series. I would straighten the RHD bend in the H55F BJ42RV shift cane I have if this was still available verses the 60 series style.

Five speed leather shift knobs are fairly cheap.
Here is one on eBay for under $20 and taking offers for less.

looks just like knob off the w5x trans from 80s pick ups.

Aisin just told me that've discontinued BMT-230, the master cylinder used for '76 to '80 FJ40. I almost spilled my lunch. If you're a vendor carrying Aisin, please send feedback to their management to express that this is one item they cannot discontinue. I've already done so, but we need more voices.

Because of the switches, it would be preventative to switch to the later model ?

How about appealing to the 'Heritage Parts Program' for this?
