65-66 Impala 4-speed trans hump

Hoping someone can help with this. My 66 has been converted from a column 3 speed to a floor 4 speed and the trans tunnel has been butchered to fit it in. Is there an after-market trans hump available for these Impala's

One off of a Ford Mustang is close. That is what the Chevelle guys do

The hump you need has quite a unique shape. There is a repro, but I am told it is not a good fit. Maybe some people who have tried it will chime in.

I found a somewhat rusty one in a wrecking yard and rebuilt about 1/2 of it with new tin when I needed one.

Thanks for the replies guys. The A body Chevs and Pontiacs seem to be well catered for with the trans humps but the B bodies seem to be left out. Your right about the repro items not fitting well. The photos I have seen make them look rather odd compared to the photos I've seen of factory installations. What model Mustang hump was close Big Dave?

4 sped trans tunnel

Saw this on ebay but don't know anything about it. The Parts Place is usually pretty good.

At least they tried to repro the 65-66. Try finding a 68-70

Tunnel

I see for many of the models but not specifically full size unless any others will work, take a look:
