True to their mid-size family sedan roots, every 60s American Muscle Car had a bench seat option. They weren’t all bucket seats with consoles. That was all optional, and expensive. For the young buyer who was trying to stretch their dollar, going cheap on the interior to save money to lavish on the engine was very common. Below, the green 1969 Dodge Super Bee has the base interior, denoted by the lack of faux wood trim on the door panels, etc. This one is also, obviously, a bench seat car, which makes a console impossible. So on 4-speed cars, the shifter simply stuck up through the floor with a rubber boot around the bottom of it. This car had just completed an expert restoration by the Lucky 7 Speed Shop in Sutter Creek CA. It looked just like it did the day it rolled off the assembly line.

The red car, below, has the deluxe interior, which included woodgrain trim on the doors and console, deluxe vinyl tuck-and-roll door panels, and high line tuck-and-roll seats.
