Hello

I am looking for a center console for a 1970 914 in good condition in charcoal.


Best regards

I came across this site and they sell a center deposit box for $75. Not an exact replica, but looks nice and sturdy. Has anyone bought one? Or anything else from this company?

I bought one from him years ago and it was nice and worth the money. Sturdier than the stock pressboard one. I don’t screw it into the pad. I just lay it in the car for longer trips and it stays put.

Center consoles aren’t great if you have big wide feet.

This is great! Thanks for sharing.

Those look really nice and a good value. If they also bend inward like the originals do it may achieve the feat of not impacting big feet.
Pics in next post for the ones i have. They are fairly rough actually. Both need recovering and i have to find the other bracket. If someone wanted to recover they both have decent boards underneath. As Mepstein suggests they have some flex when not attached. With bracket $25 plus shipping is what i would ask.

I will also look for more I may have some in a different storage unit.

Thanks Bill,

this is definitely a very fair price, but I am looking for something in a nicer condition. In this case I guess I am going to order a new one.

I am sure it is not a problem to restore the boxes for somebody who is a little more talented than me. smile.gif

So thanks again and best regards
Markus

BillJ
yes no worries at all. As i said the new ones seem to be a good deal. If someone has materials and talent these would be a good foundation for restoration.
