1972 Center console question

I'm currently working on installing the center console on my 72 Chevelle. On the console itself, does anyone know why the second to the rear mount (not the far rear mount holes, but the next one up) holes are offset? I noticed that on my console and not sure how to proceed? Is there some sort of spacer that goes in there? The holes are to line up with the rear holes on the shifter bracket, but the shifter bracket is flat. I can't find any info on this.

Re: 1972 Center console question

There is no spacer used in that position. The fastener for that position does not go through the plastic console base. It goes directly into the shifter mounting plate and into the floor pan. The fastener next to it does go through the plastic console base and the shifter mounting plate and then into the floor pan. The fastener you are talking about is under the console base. That is the reason for the off set on the console base.

Okay so that makes sense! I was overthinking it I guess. Thank you!
