Blazer Jimmy console hinges

A buddy sent me these pictures showing the two styles of hinges for the Blazer consoles. He asked me if I remember where they were used. My memory is the straight flat hinges were used on the early consoles (1969, 1970?) and the second style was used on the later consoles. However I do believe the second, more complex style was used on 1971, 1972 consoles even with the "seat belt" style. Any help would be appreciated. Maybe you could even check your console to see what style you have and the year of your Blazer. It would help if you were pretty sure the console was original to your Blazer. I have only seen the second style on any of the later 1973-1977 or 1978 "cup holder" style consoles. Thanks

Re: Blazer Jimmy console hinges

From what Iíve seen the simple hinge was used at least in 72 and earlier. The later style that affixed to the body of the console at six locations seems to be an update but was used on some model years with a seatbelt console. As an example, here are photos of a console I just acquired - seatbelt style but with the later style hinge.
