Original Floor Console for Centurion

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to find the floor mounted console, consolette for my 73 Buick Centurion.  I see it featured in 1973 dealer ads.  It looks like it mounts to the floor starting under the dash.  The top looks like a roll top mechanism with fake wood grain.  Does anybody have one to sell?  Was it a dealer add on or did it come from the factory?

 

Thanks,

 

Marty

All Centurion convertibles came only with split bench seating, no mini console available.  Not sure if an accessory was available on the hump in front of the seat.

Marty, your convertible looks nice!

Is that a green interior, too?

I think a green interior really sets off the green paint,

since a lot of green cars probably had black interiors instead.

Wow - Beautiful Car.

 

Is this it? 8 Track tape box. Believe it was a dealer accessory

That's what he is referring to, Jason.

Hummm, nope.  My 72 has a solid bench.

That is it!  I would love to find an 8-track box!  Does anybody have one for sale?  How were they mounted to the floor?

 

Thanks!

My car is green with a green interior.

Thanks!

There was a mounting bracket that screwed into the floor and then the “box” attached to that bracket. They were simple brackets that many people either handmade a substitute or mounted the box itself to the floor sans any form of bracket.

C4 Mini Console was actually a factory option and I am sure could be bought as a dealer option as well.  If you check 72 order forms you will find it listed.  Cars equipped with it from the factory also had a diverter for the underdash vent
