<sigh> I keep looking at my car, and noticing things that just do not seem quite right ... I have documentation that shows that a prior owner added a radio (car was built without one) which, nicely, is an Acadian radio (from Tinman) ... but the trim around the radio does not match the (non-existant) trim to the left of it where the ashtray and various switches are ... is this correct? The only OEM photo I can find is on the original brochure which shows a non-SD car with no trim around the radio ... what should my car look like with its radio?
If there should be more trim there, is it same as 64 GTO/Tempest? (which is horribly expensive as reproduction parts)
Or is it possible to remove the trim and just have the radio in a painted dash?

1964 Acadian Beaumont SD convert, 283 - factory 195 hp, Powerglide, 3.08 10-bolt - Cruiser

Here is my stone stock original 64 dashes
Your radio trim panel should not be there.
also the entire cluster surround is from a GTO or some custom engine turned panel.
MY BEAUMONT HAS 4 STUDDED TIRES AND 2 BLOCKHEATERS......AND LOTS OF OIL UNDERNEATH
I am pretty sure i have a couple spares, let me look. i do have lots of 64 beaumont stuff around
No sorry, no door panels, those are tough to find!
Ya, you might be right, the panel might just peel off and the original underneath, worth a try
Thanks for the tip on the tamiya color, will have to check that out at the hobby shop.
