I found this image on a car for sale in Seattle...

Must be home-made. I wonder how it was done. Also what might be a home-made glove box in the pics as well.

shift surround looks home made, probably piece of ply or similar. Cup holder looks to be generic, something like this

Don't know about the whole center console, looks to be properly covered/trimmed vs a diy job.

Can't reecal who makes that glove box but I know I've seen it before.

Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!

I'm more interested in that shift lever offset like it is towards the left.

Yes, that's what I was wondering about. Gotta be some interesting modifications under the shift plate that we can't see.

There are 4 studs holding the shifter in place, they likely shifted the shifter to the side switching which set of holes were used and only ended up using 2 studs vs. 4. Worst case they had to drill 2 new holes on the shifter base.

Always wished the manual shifter was offset to the left a few inches and then there would be room for a cupholder.....With the manual, the structure inside the center console is in the way and SHOULD NOT be cut away to make room for moving the shifter over....(Otherwise I would have done it!)

You could move the shifter over maybe an inch- but that doesn't gain enough room for a cup holder......(But hey, we can smoke as many ciggys as we want, right?)

Take back what I said about the glovebox. Looking at the pictures more closely, they way the fabric wraps around the corners makes me think it's a home brew job. Still pretty well done though.
