One thing you can tell by the shifter handles is that they do nice work & the color matches well. I am the kind of person when restoring a car I keep as much original as possible when low mileage. When we grab a car that we would of parted out 10 years ago & put it back together I like to go new as possible. I think it depends on the vehicle itself. I feel bad about some of the cars I parted out 10-15 years ago. With what we are doing now I feel good knowing we will be able to save a lot more of them. The cars we did part though saved a lot of our cars & kept them on the road.I would prefer a whole new console. Why spend money on just fixing parts, a whole new console would look way better. If just replacing parts on a console, I would be concerned with fitment and color issues..
