Default Console???

Are the 58-60 consoles the same? I looked in a Larry's Parts book and it only listed one part number for the three years.
Also, what can I expect to pay for a decent one? There are two right now on EBay, one is $75 and the other is $20. Is it just how much someone is willing to pay?
Thanks.
Joe

I would not guess the console would be worth much money but would assume you then have to buy some reproduction cover material and re-cover it. At that point you oughta look like new.

Cool Consoles

Joel1946 With respect to what one should pay for a console
for your squabird that all depends. Typically swap meets and word of mouth in Maine will let you who has what. If you find a real nice one that matches your interior then you would be prepared to pay a little more. The ones on Ebay I would ask the seller to send additional pictures, all angles, to help you decide as that seems to be not a lot of money for a console.
A couple of years ago, I saw one at a swap meet here in Alberta that went for $150.00 but it was in pristine shape and matched the colour of his squarebird. That does not always happen. Anyway, good luck in the hunt and I will also keep my ears and eyes open.What colur code is your interior??

I would like an extra console to try and mount gauges on and I didn't want to cut mine up. My interior code is 55 so one of the two on EBay looks to be the right color and I wouldn't have to worry about dyeing it.
I don't need a perfect one because I'm not even sure my idea will work that's why I really wouldn't want to spend a lot of cash on one in case I screwed it up.
Down East Maine there aren't a lot of squarebirds around. There seem to be more 61's and newer, at least in my area.
Thanks.
Joe

That 60 Vert I was talking about the other day, had three center consoles laying by it. A red, black and blue....

I didn't ask him if he was interested in selling any of the extra parts he had, since I didn't see anything I was/am needing...

Cool

Joel1946 if you are only experimenting with gauges, then it doesn't matter the condition. Go for the the $20.00 one and hope it doesn't cost you an arm and a leg in shipping costs.

Default Thanks

Dano,
I forgot to say thanks in my last post. I EMailed the guy with the $20 one and asked for more info and photos. Another $20 in shipping as long as no one else needs it more than me, I'm all set. If not, theres got to be another one out there somewhere. I'm in no rush.
Thanks to all.
I'll let you know if I don't get it and maybe someone has one out in the barn they don't need.
Joe
