My car came new with buckets no console. (and I really like this)

I bought the top plate as I love the look of the 1969 Cutlass/442 console and it was available:-)

I have three transmissions, three different shifters, and two or three different boots, so it seems I should have console and no console options:-)

I want to modify the tunnel and hump for all these different options ahead of time, and hope the console will work with the RamRod.

I can imagine the RamRod would look pretty cool hanging out of the original console:-)

Ryan

PS: The console base is quite expensive repop so I hope to find a broken inexpensive base (unwanted) to repair.

A console hides all that is Muscular and Beautiful of a vintage shifter such as a Ram Rod, JMO. Plus, a non console car is just that much more unique and special.

I hate to break your heart, but imagining is all you're gonna be doing to get a Ram Rod or a real Super Shifter to work with your console without some heavy modifications.

I love the buckets no console big time but love the idea of switching it up:-)

I can use the RamRod with the Red H boot and no console too.

Not sure how the hole in the carpet will line up with each option so I will probably cut the hole to match the original set up and see if that will be ok?

PS: I picked up some sheet metal after work to make little patches:-)

Copy that Dave.

When I have all these items in th same place at the same time I will confirm. (Not going to cut the original console top plate)

Ryan

PS: Please take Good care of your back!!

PPS: Please ask around for a garbage base for me, or two!!!
