    Lucky find

    Local guy posted a 72 coupe for parts today. He didn't list it specifically, but in the corner of one interior shot I saw a small piece of an armrest. I've been looking for a console for our 72, but can't stomach some of the prices I've seen. I called and $75 bucks later, I had this original black console, complete with clock and harness, ash tray door and armrest cover. Absolutely made my day. I wasn't even looking for it this morning...it found me. I love this hobby!

          Cool, if you want to spruce it up, they now sell the clock camera face with chrome trim and the lid for the armrest as reproduction.

          I flocked the storage compartment on mine with black flocking to dress it up as well.

            Cool Very cool find, my uncle has a perfect one from his car he has not installed in his and will not sell it to me either. He said that he was not going to install it either so still hope I guess.

              I don't use consoles anymore, they get in the way on the 1-2 shift... Smile

              FWIW, last one I sold on eBay went for $150 + $370 shipping to Israel...

                  Thanks, guys. Appreciate the tip, 72HCode. We'll certainly be refurbing this before it goes in the car. The sad part is that the car won't be ready for it for at least another 6-8 months.
