I have info and measurements from Jeffs website for the centre console,I would prefer to have the so called "deposit box''.
Anyone have a similar measurement plan or do I just build the main section off Jeffs plan and go from there?.
I want it to look/fit as close to original as possible,thanks.

There you go...that is exactly what mine looks like but Pat's is WAY cleaner than my car right now.

Do you still need the measurements?

The "deposit box", as Porsche marketing called it, was/is a compartment from the lower center of the dashboard on early 914's to the floor. It was affixed top and bottom with stainless hardware, carpeted on the sides, a vinyl floor and that was it. Was meant to hold the deitris of your commute.

Some places who should know better (Auto Atlanta) will attempt to make you believe that it was the center console on later year 914s. They are (typically) incorrect. There's a huge difference between a "deposit box" and a "console". Don't be fooled by the fools!

Thanks for the clarification Pat.

Mine is a 73 with the interior like your car. Deposit box and a center console. The pad comes out and underneath is the "plastic" center which the center console pad sits.

Good to see you posting again.

What would be the correct designation for the box between the seats? Center box? Not arguing anything here, I own 2 teeners (one w/ a center console & one w/ a deposit box), just wondering what to call the box between the seats.

I believe the box between the seats is referred to as the "Centre Console Box".

Does anyone know the dimensions of this box including pad dimensions?

My car is off having works done, so I can't go measure up... My box has the 2 'compartment' solid plastic tray insde the box.

Thanks!

I asked the same question about the Deposit Box last year, and one of the guys on here got me the measurements, hopefully you can read them:

I love using mine. I bought a tan one that was in pretty bad shape.... kinda like the rest of my car, looks-wise. Looks decent in my black interior. But it is perfect. The gauge one is a total waste of space. I mounted 4 gauges across the dash, right above it.

Throw anything in there. Not a bad cup holder either. I clip my garage door opener to it. Keep a screwdriver and a couple can koozies, phone charger in there.

The greatest!

Pat,

Seen your pic of the central deposit box.
Would it be possible for you to take a picture from the bracket at the top of the box and the way the deposit box is attached to the dash because I am missing this piece and have no clue how it looks like.

Thanks a lot in advance,
Erwin

Erwin,

Finally got around to restoring the carpet in my car.


Here are a couple of shots:

First is the right hand side where the screw goes.

Second is the bracket on the left hand side looking up at it. I will be taking the box out to do the interior carpet. do you need details on the bracket as well?

Thanks a lot for the pictures.
And yes if it is possible for you, I 'll be glad to have some shots of the bracket too

I've already taken my box apart and building a new one out of hardboard.

before you spend a lot of time getting the top bracket just right, install the box WITHOUT that bracket. Mine wedged in just behind the knee pad and I decided not to bother with the bracket.

Just a thought, won't cost anything to try.

If anyone has more photos of these (and the way they've been used) I'd love to see them.

I could not find a good photo. This is the only one I found. Mine is not screwed in and I don't use the bracket. It is wedged in pretty tight.
