I've seen these for sale from Dearborn.

The console cover lays over the original cover. It doesn't replace it.

My cover is not bad, but it is a bit wavey.

Anybody ever try it?

I can't remember hearing anything about them. Why not get some vinyl paint and repaint it? That's what i did to mine. Needs redone now after 15 yrs from being climbed over and beat on by the seat belt buckles and everything else but it worked good and lasted a long time. Just clean it well first.

Paint isn't my problem. No chips or scratches.

But, somehow over the years, the cover is no longer smooth. It's got ripples.

It's probably the result of closing the cover with too much force over 50 years.

Feels like finger indentations.

In the sixties all the girls sat on the consoles to be cool! Or maybe they wanted to be close to their BF. You decide!

Why are you abusing her??

It was probably already dimpled when I took the interior out of a donor hardtop in the 80's.

I was lucky. The car was sitting in the back of an Amoco gas station about seven miles from my home.

It had a seized motor, so the owner wasn't very careful with the car.
