so ive been scouring junkyards for a long time and have only came up w/ 2 possible center consoles that might fit w/o heavy modification / fiberglass ect........stock 1995 9c1 caprice ( between the stock police seats w/ the police console removed )

1. the center console found in the 1993 thru 99? suburban ( i had a 93 and thats the center console i was originally thinking about )




2. my new find yesterday at the junkyard was an 01 chevy 1500 2wd center console ( what i noticed is that it will not fit w/ the stock heater/ air cond vents which i dont really care about because i wont hook them up)
( but i will keep them for further subwoofer mods maybe 10" in the console :biggrin::rolleyes:anyways...)




so my question is has anyone else mocked up anything besides a 94 thru 96 impala shifter i like them but im going for different and ill be making a clone later so....

anyways im open to suggestions b4 i buy either andill try to post pics of the 2 that its between but im busy w/ 4th of july shit u know ... thanx

The chevy trailblazer has a floor shift that looks really nice and I have seen it in several caprice/impalas. They used the whole package out of a trailblazer....it works and looks pretty damn nice.

Empty shifter? The trailblazer has a floor shifter. I am confused....Are you looking at a floor shift console or just a console that looks good and keep your column shifter?

Ok, I will look at some of the cars we have here and see if there is anything that looks decent. The typical 94-95 impala console works pretty well. Do you remember the 96 console I customized for my car?

Instead of switches you can have anything you want mounted in that shifter hole. If i had not added switched i would have added custom drink holders or a hidden compartment.

Cup Holders on the bravada consoles are great.

Have you looked at the buick console. I used one on my old 9C1, I took out the shifter plate and made a compartment to hide a Glock 27. There pretty nice consoles, with CD holder,rear air vents, and power outlets and two cup holders.
