I am putting a center console in my 66 w/auto trans. I was able to pick up a complete console for free from a friend. My question is that in pictures that I have seen, there is a black stripe down the center of the console - is that stripe just something on top of the console or is there supposed to be a groove that was painted black. The reason for the question is the one I got is completely flat and all solid chrome - needs a little cleaning and polishing but other than that it appears to be in pretty good condition. Anyone know about the stripe down the center?

I took a few photos of my 1966 Barracuda console.

You may have a console from a later model that is just chrome.

The original is chrome on the sides, argent on the flats with the center recess painted black.

Thanks for the pictures and response. Wonder if I can modify this to be a 66? I'll have to take a closer look.
