Dis-agree with the "with or without Buckets" in '62.
All '62 SS cars had Bucket Seats.
Nice '63 by the way.
Thanks for the compliment and the correction. I apparently chose a poor example to demo that SS meant different things in different years.
Here's the shifter plate for the '62 SS that I thought was for the bench seat (a la the '61):

Perhaps it is simply part of the 'console'.
And here's the one for the '61 SS w/bench seats:

I've attached a pic of the '61 SS w/bench seats, and one of my '63 where I 'stole' the 'look'.
It took me awhile to decide which plate/look I liked the best.
