63 SS Console Question

My 63 SS console closes with a loud clank. It appears that there is something missing to cushion the closing. On the inside of the lid, toward the front, there are two tabs facing downward with a hole in them. Looks like something belongs there. I've searched and searched the net for a part or a blowup diagram but to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Roscoe

I believe on those tabs you are referring to, there should be some little round bumpstops that go in those holes. That would cushion the lid as well as make it tighter so it wouldn't rattle.

Thanks for the response. That's what I figure but I cannot find them on any of the Chevy parts websites. I did find one but for a 64 that is totally different.

Maybe you could go to a hardware/bolt store and find em in the specialty bins. I know I've seen them before but cannot recall where. I think it was Lowe's hardware. We also have a farm supply store over here that does sell different sizes of bumpstops.

Can someone post a picture of the proper bumpers for me? Maybe I can find something that will work. None of the chevy parts companies offer the part.

Thanks,
Roscoe

console bumpers

Hi Roscoe!
I just purchased a '63 Impala SS with the original Powerglide console. The rubber bumpers you are not gonna find at the local hardware store, as they are pretty bizzare-looking. I took some pics for you this morning but can't post them here because it says the file is too large and I don't know how to make them small. Don't know where you can get them. They look like a small square rubber block with a rubber "whisker" coming out the side. The whisker goes through the little hole. If anyone knows how to reduce a .jpeg file to sendable size I would be mighty grateful.
