    The 1st thing that caught my eye was the roll bar.
    Is it just me or does the rear wheel opening look modified to fit the wheel/tire?

    That is awesome. You know what? I actually like the body color bumpers. Wonder what other colors would look like with matched bumpers and tucked?

    At first glance the console looked like it might be out of an 80s Cutlass.  It's not.  It looks like it might be from a Dodge Mirada though.

    Yes, that is the factory Hurst Lightning Rod shifter. Super rare.

    Similar, but slightly different.  On second thought, I don't think it's from a Mirada either.  Maybe it's been fabricated?  


    Here's another with the front bumper painted body color trimmed and tucked.

    I think we should start a separate thread just about floor consoles and bucket seats for the b bodies, this is something im most certainly interested in, and im sure others may be too. I like the stock bucket seats that came in the Chevy Monza, they also came with my interior color, ha but finding a set...... Anyway i know we have talked about f body interior parts also. I think i may make this thread later.

    Wow, that's close to the color of my car! I'm liking the color matched bumpers... I think the console is a custom build. Those Cutlass seats with the chrome sides is exactly what I had in my first Caprice. They were comfortable and looked good in there. I'll probably go with those again.

    Looks like it's out of a 1987-1989 Lesabre t-type. Other years, models and sister cars as well. Armrest and shift plate modified.

    I thought the seats looked familiar since I owned a 91 Mustang a few decades ago. The headrest didn't but a little googling turned up this:

    I don't mind the roll bar
    It is aesthetically pleasing
