This is absolutely one of the best selections of dash photos I have ever seen. Amazing how much time we spend on the outside and the interior and engine compartment but a lot of the designers made it a pleasure to sit behind the dash of our rides and may it so pleasing to the eye. Excellent....

Thanks, Rob!

I think it will be fun for people to look up dashes of cars they drove back in the day.

Dashes are harder! '54 Buick (black dash, red/black seat) probably '55 or '56 Buick judging by steering wheel. '55 Pontiac older than '55, probably late 30's/early 40's.

Brandon on Mar 16, 2015 said:

Thanks, I added your note to the '54 Buick (black dash, red/black seat) photo. The '55 Pontiac was actually a '40 Packard, which has been corrected.

I say the 54 Buick dash is correct. I don't know about the steering wheel.

Anonymous on Aug 4, 2015 said:

I didn't think GM did the "knee-knocker" windshields until the '55 model year... '54 Chevy shows the preceding year, but I don't know for certain about when the Olds-Buick models went to the wrap-around windshield. Anyway, I think the comment about the '54 Buick being a year or so later is probably right.

This would be a tough one- I see several mistakes in ID here already- the 55 Pontiac Chieftain is a late 30's- the Auburn Boat tail is a kit car-the 54 Stude Commander is a later Stude Gran Turismo. Also a few of the steering wheels are not correct for the year. Makes it even tougher. Neat idea though. Keep it up!

Wow, forgot how much work the engineering people put into dashboard back then. Thanks for the memories. I restored a couple 34 Plymouth coupe years back and took a instrument panel from a 50 Nash Statesman as shown above an mounted on column because my instrument cluster was NFG. Then just tuck n rolled the dash. It was different for the times, Thanks again, Rustywelds

Great Dashboards Brandon but how do I get "nicks custom '49'Chevy dashboard" in the proper date order...?

When you add your photo, you can specify the make and year. Try it again, and if it works I can delete the first one: add photo

Thanks! Brandon

Dash collection is awesome !! A couple of comments: The "Gentleman's HotRod" 36 Ford has a 40 Dash in it. The 37 Chevy ? looks an awful lot like my 36 Buick Century dash did...Could it be a Buick? Again, geat group of pix. I have a 57 Nomad with a unique dash feature..The entire gauge group has been chrome plated, as has the top mounted speaker grill. I know why they didn't come chrome from the factory; The reflections on a bright sunny day are somewhat distracting..but it looks good and you don't see that very often.

That was the hardest test that you have come up to date. Great fun, but left me feeling very left out in spotting the cars that belong to the dashes of the 30/40's. And I thought that I knew my cars fairly well. That test sure put me in my place. Run with it.

I think the '65 mustang dash might actually be a '66 mustang dash. I don't believe the '65 had a round speedometer.
