Ok I hate to beat a dead horse, but I am gonna try again. I have a 65 SS. VIN and dataplate confirm SS with correct color and interior color and all options. The interior is dark/med fawn. Only part that confuses me is that there is a bench seat (which matches the rest of the interior). There is also a column shifter which also matches the interior paint of the car. As far as I know, neither of these options were offered for the SS package. Did the chevelle 300's have these options and maybe the source for these parts being in my car? I do have a big ol' hole in my floor where there appears to have been a shifter, and brackets that look to have been cut off that would correspond to the console location.
Thanks for any theories or opinions.
