Metal Dash Identification?
« on: March 25, 2019, 07:54:51 AM »
I'm beginning to look at spring projects and pulled out a few Dash panels I have and cant for the life of me find pictures on the internet to show me what time frames the dash panels I have are for.  Can someone confirm what year these are for and if there is a date when the design changed from what I am guessing is a 69 panel (small metal section about where column goes) versus the 70 (with more metal framing above where the column goes).  Thanks for your input in identifying the application of these.

69s have ignition key on the lower dash.  70s have it on the steering column

Look along the edges to see if there is a stamping date. Some assembly plants used different looking parts at the same time.

Top to bottom:
1969 Mustang or Cougar without A/C.
1970 Mustang or Cougar without A/C.
1969 Mustang only with A/C, 1969-70 Cougars did not have the warning lights in that location.
