I know its not a bolt in, but anyone ever put a 60/61 dash into a 57-59 car (Imps excepted) ? Is it doable without "too much" hassle or is there a problem with lining up the steering column?

I put a 59 Chry dash ass'y in a 59 Dodge. All the mounting holes lined right up. I wanted to put a 60 Chry dash in it but Wife didn't like it. Check out those moulding pieces that sit on top of the dash, next to the inside of the windshield and see if they are interchangeable. If so, probably have a good chance the dash will work too. Let us know how it works out. Jerry

thanks. not sure what to do. bought a 59 fury coupe in parts, dash (like the rest) totally disassembled, blasted and in primer, patina gone and the 59 plymouth dash never appealed to me for some reason, but I love 61 Fury dashes and i have one of those extra, complete and with perfect patina. wonder if its worth the trouble.

If I will ever be able to start working on my '59 Dodge I would like to have a '60-62 Chrysler dash in there.
'Hopefully' it will all fit without too much of a fight.

I really like the "V" dash of the '59 Plymouth.
