    I just bought a 1950 Chevy Coe car hauler and someone has cut the dash out of it. Im pretty sure these dashes were welded in when they were new not bolted am i correct on that? if so where would be the best place to get a replacement dash and what would be the best way to go about putting it back in?

    Nows the time to put a different dash in there! Find one that you like and make it fit.

  7. If you can find a junk cab, cut it out as close to the flanges as possible and maybe you can make it so it can be bolted in.

    Is it just the light or did that thing burn at some point?

    If you can get a dash out of any 47 to 53 Chev/GMC P/U cab it should work, other wise find some thing you like and cut to fit. Good luck with your project,looks like a cool truck.

    A 60 caddy dash would look good in there.
