Hello all. Can anyone identify this console and bucket seats? I snagged this photo from an ad for an 85 El Camino but have never seen this console or bucket seat design before. It appears the console has a raised shifter and then a separated arm rest attached at the rear. Anyone know if it was specific to El Caminos and if there are RPO or package names involved with this combo. I can’t seem to find the ad anymore or else I’d ask the seller directly.

Thanks!

Don't worry you haven't found some "RARE" optioned car

Camino and or any other GBody never came with these.

Just ask the seller what did the seats come out of.

Console looks like the rear storage compartment section of a Malibu/ El Camino/ Monte Carlo console with the shifter hacked into it.

I'm not concerned so much to the rarity of the car but just what these are out of so I can look for a set myself. As I mentioned, I cannot find the ad now. I was inclined to contact the seller initially before posting here.

Yeah I can see the similarities but can tell they are different still. The line in the Monte console is level with where the shifter plate is whereas the line in the photo I provided is above that same location if it was a Monte console.

Looks like a J-body console
My thought too, I had a 87' Cavalier for a beater years ago, it looks similar to how I remember it, not much of a console, just is a place to cover the shifter. Seats look GM for sure, but can't place those. Looks like a cobbled together interior but credit given for it all matching color wise.
