    I'm new to the site, wondering if anyone has a clue on how to remove the center console in a 1965 skylark. Bought a new carpet kit and it goes all the way under it, so it needs to be removed , plus needs a good cleaning. Thanks.

    Shorty console both the "flat top" and the "iron board", have four screws, two in front, two in back inside on the bottom of the console.

    I think he may be talking about the full length automatic shifter console. It is not as obvious:
    -screw off the shifter knob
    -look for a small hole in the rear of slot in the shifter plate (the plate the shifter comes up thru).
    -that small hole has a "button" in it you push with something like an ice pick. It will release that plate where it will lift out from the end the button it on.
    -under the plate are screws holding the console to the top of the shifter mechanism.
    -there are also two screws in the bottom rear of the storage compartment in the console.
