    Do you think that we're likely to see reproduction floor-shift steering column bowls now that 3D printing makes this very possible? One for tilt(GM 7805999) and one for non-tilt (GM 7804649), for converting original columns?

    The part numbers above show my bias, as they're for 1969-72 Skylarks, LeManses, and Cutlasses. Maybe Chevelles too?

    Thank you Jason and 2dtrak! According to The Parts Place, this is GM 7805991 and not 7805999 (1969 BOP A-bodies) or 7809289 (1970-72 BOP A-bodies) . The Parts Place advertises this part as fitting our 1970-72 A-body Buicks, but I side with Jason and wonder if they've verified this?

    The Parts Place link:
    https://www.thepartsplaceinc.com/pr...eeve-housing-for-floor-shift-gm-7805991/97871

    Update - both 7805999 ('69) and 7809289 ('70-72) have long been discontinued without a substitution given in the GM Parts books. If GM 7805991 was a viable substitution then I believe it would have been listed as so.

    I have one from The Parts Place. Looks like a nice piece,but have yet to try it out. I will also take pictures to compare lengths between Pontiac/Chevy and Oldsmobile/Buick.

    Here is the different between the Pontiac/Chevy,and the Oldsmobile/Buick
