Console Gauge?

I have a Power Glide non gauge console. Is there a "piggy back" 3 gauge mount available to "attach" to it that looks stock....or just the exploding wallet re-pop full console with the gauge cluster as part of the center console?

Re: Console Gauge?

There are aftermarket vendors selling console kits as the front panel of console is fastened with hardware.
Rick's Camaro, Classic Industries, National Parts Depot, and Heartbeat City plus a couple others I forget, would have these kits.
Good luck in installing.

Yep. And check Ebay. I had the console (from a previous installer), but was missing the 67 gauge mount. Got one off of Ebay, then started the hunt for the correct era gauges. Eventually found them all at decent prices.

If you are converting from column to floor shift, don't forget the wiring that extends the column shift reverse light and neutral safety switch to the one that mounts to the floor shifter.

Never argue with an idiot; they'll only drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Re: Console Gauge?

Thanks guys. Been looking at the sources noted. Car is a Console Power Glide car. Just no console gauge pod.

Anyone know the gauge size a the 67 3 gauge console pod holds? 2" or"?

May just get a under dash Autometer pod/gauges

Re: Console Gauge?

For my 67 4 speed console I used the following:

Classic Industries
6458139 67 CAMARO CNSLE GAUGE HOUSING

Gauges are 2 1/16th, I bought these 3 from Summitt

ATM-2421
Gauge, Traditional Chrome, Oil Pressure, 0-100 psi, 2 1/16 in., Analog, Mechanical, Each
(Mfr. #: 2421)

ATM-2432
Gauge, Traditional Chrome, Water Temperature, 120-240 Degrees F, 2 1/16 in., Analog, Mechanical, Each
(Mfr. #: 2432)

ATM-2592
Gauge, Traditional Chrome, Voltmeter, 8-18 V, 2 1/16 in., Analog, Electrical, Each
(Mfr. #: 2592)

Took the Gauge Housing apart and made a cardboard template of the base, transferred that to the console and cut the hole. Used small Allen head bolts to mount it.
Real happy with the way it came out

Re: Console Gauge?

^^, Thanks. Was wondering how you grafted it into the forward plate of the shifter

$175 for the gauge holder, ouch...I think its just going to be a under dash generic 3 gauge mount. Something from AM or Speedhut

Re: Console Gauge?

I used two long screws that insert into the gauge holder housing. You will have to drill two small holes in the console for these screws.
