    Does anybody have any pictures and or measurements on where the oem console brackets should be on a 68- 70 Charger b-body? I had the floor replaced and the brackets reinstalled but I don’t think they got it right.

    When I put them back in, I usually put the brackets on the console and then tack all of the brackets
    to the floor so everything is in a "free state". Yeah, yours looks a little crooked.

      Thread this recently but can't find it. Console is offset to drivers side. Think it was an inch not positive . your rear bracket looks right the box that attached to rear bracket isn't center between the 2 holes. Was the box welded at factory or added later? Wait for more posts.

      They’re original brackets just cut off and reinstalled on a new floor. All the holes line up front to back but I think the front of the shifter box is to far to the left. I was hoping someone could post some measurements so I could check the placement of everything.

      That’s helpful. I think I need to move the front brackets over to the right.
      The back of the console is centered side to side but the front isn’t.
