I really like the quality of the new classic console I put in. the old one was not original and was really cheap.

what I don't like is the shifter boot situation.  the current boot is screwed to the trans tunnel.  anyone have any ideas on how to put a good looking boot onto the classic console?

The console in the picture on the left is a factory console, but you're missing the plate over the shifter with the clock. The shift boot appears to also be an original Ford unit for the 72-73 factory Hurst round stick shifter. Factory boot was bolted to the top of the trans tunnel. I don't run a console any more, it gets in the way of my elbow when shifting the four speed.

I added a shifter boot. I think it will work. the classic console metal surface has a couple of screws that can be loosened and I will sandwich the base of the boot between the layers of the console. that should give it a more finished look. right now its just tucked into the opening
