Thank You Big Dave,
It was really late last night when I joined Y'alls site, so late I didn't even continue the search I set out upon.
I was chasing a 4 spd console for a 68/69 Impala. I like to use factory parts when they are available and affordable.
I watch for factory consoles regularily and I had been window shopping at a somewhat popular auction site. I actually used my auction site name on Y'alls site too because I figure it describes me fairly well, my wife says I am completely obssessed with anything that has wheels on or in it!
Anyway, back to my story, I was looking at a console that had a "Buy It Now" price of 3g's and I figured I needed to keep looking which is what brought me to Impalas.net. I hope I'm able to find a factory part that I can afford, trade for or maybe someone who has already dealt with this scenario and willing to tell what they ended up using. I have an automatic console and I even bought a Chevelle 4spd top plate to see if I could interchange the two and make a hybrid. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them.
