1968 Dodge Coronet R/T convertible on BaT right now, column shift 727 with a console. Never seen a console without a shifter before, push button yes but not column?

I would agree - that has to be rare. First time his girlfriend sits on it it breaks though. Waste of money!

I'd worry about doing 110 with the door open and no hands on the steering wheel...

Some times ya have to get out of the ‘notion’ before ya can get out of the car. Catch-all type of thing.

Probably vomiting. Sometimes it just comes up without warning.

close but not quite - for the 1966 model year, the Charger Coronet 500 & Satellite (2-door hardtops & convertibles) all had bucket seats & a console STANDARD
if the base V8 with its column-shift 3-speed manual was NOT upgraded, then the cars received the console shown above (1966 ONLY) rare because it was the least desirable drivetrain (less than 2,500 built, total)

& there might have been a similar deal with a '66 c-body or two shruggy

If it is a factory installed console then the floor mounting tabs will be factory too.......................for some reason that console looks to be leaning to the right, that couldn't or shouldn't be a factory error IMO. Don't forget someone "added" a tail stripe onto a "stripe delete" Monroney/window sticker label.......wonder what else was added? And wouldn't the under hood sound deadening and silenced dual snorkel be listed on the window sticker too on an R/T?

What's the fender tag code for a console in '68? And why no corner bend crease in the upper left of a St. Louis built car? scope

Was that upper left hand crease something that started in '68 in St. Louis? My '67 GTX is a St. Louis car and it has no crease anywhere. Bottom tag.

Wife says too many cars, liquidation coming soon......

the delete plate center console was a 1966 item ONLY - it was NOT an available OPTION for any 1968 vehicle

the fender tag and window sticker are NOT AUTHENTIC spank

a/5 = 485 = C.A.R. (center arm rest) aka "buddy seat"
VS.
a/6 = 486 = console

Someone asked for body stampings (SO#) and motor and trans stampings (VIN).

Thing is… on a 68 you need the buildsheet to tie those two things together

What with this join line on both sides of the Trans tunnel ?

Is this where they spliced replacement floor pans in ?
