    Welcome to the site!

    Is that console an original Nova piece or a modified first gen. Camaro console? Either way, it looks great!

    Interesting story. When I was gathering parts to build this car. I didn't know the difference between 68-72 and 73/up nova consoles. I bought it as an original 68-72 console way back in 1995. Fast forward to a couple years ago when I was finally ready yo put it in. I found out the Console Shell was an original 73 up. So, I had to source one of the very few reproduction parts on this car. That console is a reproduction of the 68-72 console but the gauges are original parts.

    That's pretty cool! I didn't know that Nova's came with the "Console Gauge" package like the Camaros did. It has me curious now. With the exception of the black face, that gauge cluster looks just like the one in I put in the '68 I'm working on. Learn something everyday. Like I said, it looks great!
