Someone at the last show told me there was a difference between the 65 and 66 center console end caps. Is there? If so how do you tell the difference between the two? Can you interchange them? Thanks!

Yes, they are interchangable. The '65 is smaller whereas the '66 is taller - both same width of course. Sorry, no pictures but I'm sure someone will chime in w/ some.

No No No, not interchangeable.

The AC units are not the same size. Because of this, the endcaps are different THICKNESSES so they will come up flush with the AC unit. The console is cut at the same place, so to "close" the gap, one endcap is much thicker than the other. There is a part number on the underside, a C5 for 65 and a C6 for a 66. I have both of them, I think, at home on a shelf, and can take a picture, if needed.

BTW, the 65 is reproduced a LOT cheaper than the 66. Do not know why, just the way it is.
