  • Powershift console with bench seats?

    I'd like to put a powershift auto in my '53 coupe resto-mod AND keep the stock front bench. Will it work? - or will I have to sit in the back seat to drive? Anyone got an idea about how I might accurately locate and layout the hole I have to cut into the hump to mount the fiberglass shifter pedestal? Thanks! --pgothard

    You'd better be VERY tall.
    Look at the console loction.

        You have the seat custom modified with a notch like the big three factories did, to clear the shifter, and forget the Console!

        Or, just install '62-'64 GT Hawk Bucket seats like most have done.
