Cool Custom center console '67

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?

The console looks good. I was thinking of building myself something earlier today. It would be nice to have some storage at hands reach and a cup holder.

That is awsome! I wish I had your skill to do something like that. I wouldn't know where to begin (or at least after the frame was built).

Thanks guys. I thought it turned out pretty sweet. It started out as a cardboard template and here are a couple pics of the process. I have a couple more built, I just haven't upholstered them yet.

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.

console

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!
