    I never liked the look of a 33-34 ford dash...mine is now a 34 top rail welded to a 34 chevy bottom half with a Champion insert. 34dashpainted1.jpg 34dash.JPG

  16. The dash in the Ranch Wagon.

    This is what a original '54 dash looks like.

    Hammered both ends of the dash to add the air ducts & filled in the heater controls to add one of the vents.


    I also deleted the idiot lights and added gauges.


    The headlight switch & wiper switch was relocated on ether side of the column where the original fresh air vents were. HRP

  17. The '40 dash I'm modifying to go in my '36 3-window.



  18. My 34 roadster dash. I made the glove box door & gauge panel from a damaged speed limit sign & covered the dash with a leather skit from a thrift store. DSCN4702.JPG

    I may have posted this before, and have seen this setup a number of times on here before, but here is the dash I did for my 31 roadster. It is a Brookeville 32 style dash for a model A opened up to accept the aluminum insert panel. I think it came out pretty good. The ignition key is the round knob directly under the speedo. I ground down the key and threaded a matching knob onto it so the ignition wouldn't look so out of place. I am also going with a matching column mounted tach. Here are a couple in process shots and a finished shot.

  21. My '29 Model A cabriolet dash. Woodgrained dash with '28 Chrysler instrument panel insert and hand made switch panels with same graining.
    All finished except for switch bezels. I have posted pics of this on a number of threads. I love the look and enjoy it every time I drive the car.

    Can someone tell me what this is out of? I was told a 36 Olds when I bought it, but now I'm not so sure.

  28. My avatar: Made the aluminum dash insert for my instruments and added a console to handle the electrics, switches, radio, etc. with a small glove box door for my stuff, paper work/documents.

  30. A radio should fit that rectangular hole. I did exactly the same thing to get a radio in mine because Ford thought it was so cool to make that goofy shape that nothing else will fit except for those $500 radios that are currently on the market.
