I haven't, but I want one.

Cool

Someone mentioned this to me about 10 years ago and sent me a pic, I think that option was only available from 79-81 and only on the coupes. I wonder if it was a unique console part, or lifted from another platform?

Also, ever seen one of these? I knew they made them, only because I've been around the cars.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Chevrolet-1973-BelAir-/300513922564?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item45f8068e04

Funny thing is, they sprung for the clock. Most Impalas I've seen never have the clock, both of mine had the dummy plate delete thing. My other one even had AC and no clock, I think I've even seen Caprices without the clock. Yet this thing's got it.

I bet that car would be fun to drive.

Nooooooo! It's gotta stay original, that'd be blasphemous! If it were all messed up and ratty but still solid, then I'd consider making better use of the fact it's got 4 pedals. LOL

Did it have the console? There is a 4 dr one of those Bonnevilles near my old house that I know the old lady must have bought new, it's that powder blue color. lol

I really would like to find one of those cars with the snowflake wheels on it. Awesome.

Check this out, I did not know about these (I didn't know that Buick LeSabre Sport Coupe had the console and had never heard of the 1980 Holiday 88 package listed in the link at the bottom)

Apparently they were just G-body consoles!

Those things HAVE to be lifted from G body parts bins. It looks too much like the ones ive seen in those cars to be specific to B bodies. Anyone have a blue one? Laughing

The console came out of a grand prix.
