1964 Beaumont Dash Trim


<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?

Dash.JPG

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?

Thanks!

Dave

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.

Yes, that cluster face is 64 GTO only.

Dave, do you think Johnny Cash may have been involved with building that car? You have the Florida edition.

Well, poop. Thanks for clarifying what I have, guys. I guess I will see if Tin Man has the correct gauge surround.

Woah that would be great! I'd really like for my 64 Beau to be as close to original as possible.

Thanks,
Dave

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the chrome piece on the dash just a stick-on and behind it is ribbed.

If so I would still wait and see if Beaumontguru has one and then sell that one to some GTO guy????
Closest colour I have found that matches is TAMIYA COLOR Field Blue XF-50.

Hey Beaumont guru, you say u have alot of 64 stuff, any door panels u willing to sell????

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.
