I am looking at buying a mustang console for my 68 Cougar, and I have to decide between a fastback or convertible model. What are the differences in the console between the three body styles and which would fit better?

Thanks,
Brett

You are lucky that coupe/fastback consoles are much more common (although decidedly rare themselves). If you purchase one, make sure to get the proper radio with it (longer knobs to clear the extra padding) and all the wiring, including the feed from the main underdash pigtail to the console wiring. Also get the shifter rod as this differs from the std shifter rod by having a mounting point for the light slider.

Try a mid seventies console from a Camaro (Oh horror, a desecration of the mustang) It can be custom ized to fit and it will actually look good
