 Got these pictures from Hogfiddles that he was having a problem trying to post and he wanted to share them on this post, he stated these are the original locations that he found when pulling apart his interior. The first picture is the front bracket and the second picture is the middle and rear bracket.

The front bracket is held in with rivets. Not sure how to locate the bracket. Here is what I have in my car.

All the locations key off the raised brace in the floor.
All the consoles started out the same, then the shifter consoles faced the beavers.

Well I spent today searching our local old car parts yard going through all the Torinos, Montegos, and Thunderbirds.  Found no remaining consoles or floor brackets.  If Brent (Uante) reads this would it be possible to get some measurements on the brackets to help with making new ones, I know from this post that there are numerous people this would help and would be a good reference for those in the future.  thanks  -   dave

Whatever you could do John would be greatly appreciated.  I won't be putting mine in for a while but will start making the brackets whenever I can get the measurements.  thanks  -  dave

i can measure his brackets, i thought you meant the measurements for the location on the tranny tunnel, i can get those later too!
 also looks like brent got brackets so the 2 flat ones can go to you when i find them???
 i've been so damn busy with work and parts i haven't had much time for anything so i'm going to a car show tomorrow first one this year, then i'll be looking through a bunch of parts  so i'll keep an eye out for those bracketsWink

The tunnel measurements would be very helpful.  If you do locate the brackets would love to get them, just let me know if you do locate.  thanks again  -  dave

I saw the posts about measurements last night...I'll get a few initial pictures this morning and we can go from there depending on what other dimensions you need. The arch piece is the heaviest gauge steel and seems to be the main support.

This may not be of interest, but when I removed the console, shifter and interior out of a 1974 XR7 I had, I wrote the measurements inside the removed shifter hump of the exact location of where the floor shifter hump is located on the floorpan. Since they are written inside the hump (figured I would not lose them that way) I can make a picture of them if anyone needs it.

I am not doing the floor shift so won't be using the hump but it would probably be good to have on this thread should others want to.  It would be good to have all the info in one spot so please do  post them.

Here's some pictures of sizes and such for the Arch bracket and base plate. 


It's about 6" wide and 9" tall. 



Close up of Corner attach point 





Measurement across top



Offset lower attach holes 



Hole spacing, just needs to match whatever you make the base plate to. 



Base Plate 



Attach configuration. Two holes on forward tab are for attaching to car hump. Two holes in the middle by the larger hole are for attaching through the bottom of the console glovebox. And two more attach holes in angled rear tabs. 



Side profile of Arch mount.

Some shots of the rear and front brackets 



Rear Bracket. Console attaches to it through the rear of the console glove box floor. 



Profile of height for hump attachment 



Bottom view



Front Bracket 



Profile of front bracket. My front hole that this feeds through is broken as most are I think. I'm going to make a metal plate for inside and outside of feed through area and rivet them together once I get my car back and can verify fit and everything.

I just want to post a thank you to all who are participating in this, we are definitely getting enough information and pictures to make this a very doable project.  When John gets the tunnel measurements (no rush on this, John, I won't be putting the console in for a while yet) we should have all the information we need.  I am also starting to make a filler piece for my beaver area but due to the irregular outline of the section I may first smooth it out to hopefully make it easier to fab a piece to fit.
