This VW bug center console was an accessory for all vintage beetles.
The console has an additional instrument board and a storage option on the tunnel. The additional storage is in the sight and reach of the driver and front passenger.
You have the option of installing additional instruments in the cockpit, such as tachometer, oil gauge, ice warning, clock, hazard warning lights, switches, sockets and so on.
I think the gauge board is very cool in a rally or vintage speed VW bug. As you can see on the second picture, it is easy to rebuild.
