I just finished up building a center console for my '67 coupe and wanted to show you guys how it turned out. Sorry for the mess, I haven't vacuumed it out yet since I started everything. It has a T5 with a billet short throw shifter and Hurst 8" stick. For the time being I matched the center part of the console to my dash. Soon I am putting the brushed aluminum "deluxe" dash in and I will change the console to brushed aluminum to match. At that time I plan to add a volt meter and a matching clock (my dash is custom and does not have these two). What do you guys think so far?
Like the stitching. Did you do it or job it out? I'm planning a similar one, but want to start the curve toward the dash a little farther out. Plan to bring it up like the factory deluxe console into the radio bezel, put a couple of gauges where the radio sits, then put a double DIN nav radio below them. just don't have any money right now.

That is a nice job. Yeah, I too am curious about the stitching...farmed out or DIY? I have a 69 w/center console only I am worried about crushing the center section of the 45 year old plastic. I am considering building a custom console and your idea looks almost perfect....ok, being a bit jealous here...NICE!
