long center console (be quick)
Maybe a good chance to buy:

Hi Eddy,

Not too bad, but needs full restoration (including the clock). One must stop and think about how much money and time they want to put into the resto compared with going out and buying a new repro console. The original clock is worth collecting in its own right, if you don't already own one, but you would be spending a few hundred dollars to convert it to digital quartz movement.

I got suckered a few years ago before the new repro ones were being produced, and bought a second hand one complete that looked a lot like the one you're showing us on the Net now. It was supposed to be sold as reconditioned, but the work done on it was a complete mess, and i had to start again and completely reco the whole thing again properly. Sadly, i ended up spending over $1,500.00 Au when the whole thing was finished. That price included the clock changed over to digital as well. An expensive lesson for me to be learned for sure.Undecided

For a top reco job, you would need to replace the clock movement and lens, the complete plastic shifter bezel, the ashtray itself, plus new lining for the storage box, and a new lid. Those items bought new add up big and fast.



I tired to snag it for the clock. Got out bid at the last second. Sad

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.
