    Default removal of center console on 1959 Corvette

    I have a 1959 Corvette. I am trying to remove the center console to access and repair the radio and clock. I have removed the upper and lower chrome molding and side screws, bur it still will not budge. Can anyone help?

    The center console is a part of the instrument panel all molded as one piece. It is not removable without a saw.

    You need to remove the passenger side package tray under the grab bar then remove the filler panel that makes up the right side of the console and the right lower dash. The screws are all plainly visible and easy to get at. The radio and clock come out from the back. First have to remove the radio knobs and the nuts on the control shafts. The radio also attaches to a bracket behind the console.
