Very nice indeed!

My favorite is a dash used by Chrysler, on 300's and I believe also the Newport in the 1960 to 62 range. I don't think these photos truly show the size and shape of the dome like cover over the gauges. To see one in person is really something. I know I have some photos I took some place of one of these, but for now I got these off of the interweb.

I've always loved the Space Age dashboards of the late '50s and early '60s cars. Very under-appreciated in my opinion.

The '60 model Chrysler 300 dash above is really cool to see in person. The dome over the instrument cluster is very hard to photograph right to see the full effect.

I think the Chrysler is the one that uses electroluminescent lighting rather than bulbs. It looks fantastic at night.
