    I just broke the chrome bezel in my car . I knew it has a 67 dash in it. and I ordered a replacement part.
    Previous owner changed dash frames to get the warning light due to he changed to 67 and up brake system . . I have no desire to change back to the single pot 66 master cylinder system , but may someday change or modify the dash to delete the warning light setup on the dash . Someday,,,maybe


    BUT, my question is.
    Is the correct piece avail out there for a 66 dash frame should I decide to correct it at a later date
    If so, where .
    is it diecast piece or plastic like the repop 67 piece is

      I know that,

      Is the 66 piece avail reproduction or am I stuck with looking for an original should I decide i want to correct it ????

      But the more I think about it . The more that voice in my head says just leave it alone .
      I broke the one in the car yesterday and that got me thinking about it so to speak

        I believe repros are available. I may have an original for '66 in decent shape. If interested I can look.

        The 66 piece is die cast metal and not as wide as the 67 chromed plastic piece. If you have a 67 dash you will need the 67 piece. If a 66 dash has been modified for the warning light then the 66 piece will be needed.

        Thanks,
        Its a 67 dash and bezel, 66 steering column

        To correct it , I would have to change the entire dash frame. And to be honest Im not 100% sure i want to get into that . I would have to find a correct dash frame and change everything over. And Im not sure I have that in me anymore . Ive already ordered the 67 trim and Odds are thats how it will stay .

        But was curious what the differences were between the 2 years

        Find a 67 column, the first year for the collapsible column, much easier swap and safer. The larger diameter fills the opening better. I think 67-69 will work.

        What company did you buy that part from? I have a 67 Charger and I have my original part but want to replace. My chrome finish is no longer. I am planning to paint with a chrome paint but if that doesn't work I will need to buy one like yours.
