Back in July of 2014 we announced that Original Parts Group, Inc. (OPGI) was producing complete center console reproduction kits to fit the 1966 to 1972 Chevelle and El Camino. At the same time, OPGI also began offering complete center console reproduction kits for the 1970 to 1972 Monte Carlo.
A classic car’s center console is not only the housing for the shifter; it is an interior centerpiece that is both highly visible and an essential control component at the same time. It is also one area of the interior that can really look outstanding when restored to original specs. That’s why OPGI is pleased to offer complete console kits containing everything needed to replace a worn or damaged console in one convenient package.
Manufactured on new tooling by RESTOPARTS®, each individual center console kit component is an exact reproduction of the corresponding factory part, thus ensuring the complete kits meet all OEM specifications for fit, finish and functionality.
* The complete center console reproduction kits for classic Chevelles, El Caminos and Monte Carlos are each available in three different versions to fit 4-speed, Turbo Hydra-Matic, and Powerglide transmissions.
* The kits include everything you need for a complete restoration including console bases, doors, hinges, back light assemblies, finished top plates, correct indicator lenses, dial assemblies, sealing strips, lock latches, screw kits, and even the mounting brackets.
* Consoles bases are injection-molded with correct mounting bosses, factory-authentic grain patterns, satin black paint, bright chrome accents, and brushed aluminum fascia, all features that make them virtually indistinguishable from the original factory parts.
* The fact that all of the center console kit components can also be ordered from the OPGI catalog as separate items adds to the flexibility of restoring existing center consoles as well.
Today, OPGI is pleased to announce that it will also begin offering fully assembled reproduction center console kits. The fully assembled kits can also be ordered with or without shifter assemblies as desired. This means that you can now restore an old console, assemble your own complete replacement console, or simply drop in a brand new completely assembled console. Designed for 1966-1972 Chevelles and El Caminos, as well as 1970-1972 Monte Carlos, OPGI has your center console needs completely covered.
