One of the things that is always interesting when restoring a car is finding and dealing with broken stuff. Cars that were optioned with center consoles in the 1960s have their own proclivities and we know that with these machines heading towards the half century on the road and that means every part of them has been worked over, beat up, and abused to some level. OPGI knows that too and they always strive to meet the expectations and needs of their customers. That is why they have started producing 1966-1967 Chevelle/El Camino console bases. The market for these parts on the used side has gotten tough. We know guys who have literally scoured swap meets to find the “least broken” one that they could so ultimately they could patch it together and use it. With this news, those days are over.
These console bases are injection molded plastic and they meet or exceed every factory spec for toughness and fit/finish. Available for automatic and four speed layouts, there isn’t a 1966-1967 Chevelle or Elky that they wouldn’t drop right into. Whether you are restoring a console car or upgrading your cruiser to give the interior a more finished and upscale touch, OPGI has you covered and these new center console bases will meet your expectations and likely beat them. The retail piece? Just under $200.
