Chevelle Interior Restoration

OPGI Console Kits 1966 to 1970 Chevelle

There are few aspects of car restoration that are more satisfying than returning a worn-out interior to its original factory fresh appearance. One area of interior restoration that has always been of prime importance is the appearance and function of a classic car’s center console. Serving as an interior centerpiece and housing for the shifter, the console is both highly visible and an essential control component. It is also one area of the interior that can really look outstanding when restored to original specs. Cars with worn-out or damaged center consoles as well as those that came from the factory without center consoles at all, will both benefit from the installation of a complete new console assembly. That’s why Original Parts Group, Inc. (OPGI) now offers complete center console reproduction kits to fit the 1966 to 1972 Chevelle and El Camino.

OPGI’s Complete Console Kits contain everything needed to restore your Chevelle or El Camino console back to showroom shape in one convenient package. Because each individual kit component is an exact factory reproduction, the console kits are guaranteed to meet all OEM specifications for fit, finish and functionality.

The consoles bases are precisely reproduced, injection-molded components that have the correct mounting bosses, grain patterns and exact contours for both 4-speed and automatic-equipped Chevelles and El Caminos 

OPGI Console 1966 - 1972 Chevelle

from 1966 to 1972. Depending on the application, console finishes include factory-authentic grains, enamel-baked satin black paint, flawless chrome accents, and brushed aluminum fascia, making all virtually indistinguishable from the original factory parts. Console compartment doors, mounting points and all related hardware are perfectly proportioned for an exact factory fit. Kits for 1966 to 1967 vehicles fit those with and without console mounted clocks, and the kits for clock-equipped cars include clocks that look just like the original equipment but employ modern quartz movements for more accurate and long-lasting service.

Whether you own a Chevelle or El Camino equipped with a manual, standard automatic, Turbo Hydra-Matic, or Powerglide transmission, there is an OPGI premium reproduction Complete Center Console Kit ready for easy installation in all 1966 to 1972 models.
