The gauge pod you have pictured is made to put custom gauges in a factory console. 68 and 69 consoles are the same. You could use that pod with a factory console. Just slide it back a bit. I don't know how well that shifter would work in a factory console though. Maybe you could trim the shifter hole a little bit where it goes down to the carpet. That part of the console is just held in by a few screws. All of the big restoration suppliers sell assembled consoles. Good luck with your build.
