Q: Console Differences
What were the differences between the consoles for the first generation Firebird.
A: Hey folks, the 1967 console had a top with a finish called “camera-case grain”, and was satin black in finish. In 1968 and 1969, they added a metal applique with the burled walnut finish, matching door and rear cover, and eliminated the rear ashtray and light. The main console structure and the chrome rails were the same for all 3 years of Firebirds and also for the 1967 camaros. If you unbolt the walnut applique from a 68-69 console, you’ll be looking at a 1967 console with holes drilled for the studs on the applique. The appliques were different for standard and automatic equipped cars.
