1966 Impala Console

I got a 1966 Impala SS with a factory console. I just finished up restoring it and there is a hole the size of a nickel in the console door that flips open where the ash tray is. I assume this is for a cigarette lighter? I bought this car in pieces and their was no lighter in this location when I bought it. Was this an option or am I just flat out missing it? It appears to me the my console wiring harness has the hook up for it. I have also noticed that there were two different styles of this lighters. Any one out their able to help me out with this. Thanks

Welcome to the Team!

Sorry I can not help as I have no idea. Many cars have more than one lighter in the interior.

66 console

There was never a lighter option in the console for the 66 full size car. That hole in the ahstray door was drilled out for some reason by one of the owners.
