I picked up a late model ( '81+) center heater console, thanks @Wadesters
BUT my '79 doesn't have the mounting holes for this console. (Circled in pic below)

Does anyone happen to know the thread pitch used to mount the four feet?

Did I ever send you the dimensions?!? The tub is still sitting where it is in the photo above. If I didn't send you dimensions, which I don't think I did, I can do so and also check the threads for you.

So it appears that the front two holes in the "rib" are offset to the inside of the rear holes ~1/8" on each side. I put a square along the face of the rib and here is what I got.

~13.75" from face of rib to center of rear holes:

Drivers rear hole dims:

Pass rear hole dims, again ~13.75 face of rib to center:

This shows how the front holes are offset from the rear holes:

Here is spacing from hole to hole laterally, about 4-7/8" for rear, this would put spacing between the front two holes at 4-5/8" (I forgot to measure!):

This shows the front passenger hole is "inside" of the rear hole:
