    Best one I've ever seen in a Model A was a narrowed 50-51 Mercury dash in a closed cab pickup. I saw it several years ago at the show in Dewey. Somebody in Oklahoma will know the owner, and hopefully can post a photo.

  12. I cut down a 50 ford unit to fit my old 29 sedan but ended up installing it in my 34 ford pickup...used all the 50 gauges and sending units for a functioning dash..

    I'll be putting a '36 dash in my '30 roadster. No pics, but at the moment there's not even a place to hang a dash.
     
  15. A bit of down under Kiwi ingenuity for dash ideas.

    An early Ford Pop one slightly modified to suit.

    And an early Morry Minor one, also modified to suit.

    I have a 32 style in mine with 55 Desoto gauges...being my first build, I didn't go too crazy. I really like how complete dashes from late 30's-early 50's cars look when they're done right. Maybe on the next car :D.

    that's the ticket! what a novel idea!!
     
  18. Re-arranged Shoebox Ford dash in my A bone RPU. This was just about finished in the photo, needed a bit more cut & paste along the bottom edge and that hole filled in the top but it was all pretty much welded up, edges that butted to the doors had been metal finished, glove box worked perfectly and all very nice work. Hallock W/S needed to be fit as the door pillars had been built up so we could fit the windshield nicely. Gloce box door was a Canadian meteor version and quite rare. I WISH we could have finished it as it was an AWESOME piece and true one of a kind.

    I have a '36 dash in mine but I used the center section from a '49 Nash Airflyte, the shutter in the center rolls up to reveal the radio & switches etc.
    Cheers Dago.

    I like 32 Ford dashes in a Model A :)
    This one belongs to fellow HAMBER RFH1931.
    It is a 32 Ford pickup dash trimmed to fit his 1932 Model A coupe.

    Here is a 3/4 front shot of his coupe ...
