General Discussion / Re: 56 Eldo Dash Pad
Last post by JungleCadd - Yesterday at 05:16:40 PM
Quote from: Cadman-iac on March 11, 2023, 11:26:39 AMI've got a small collection of dash top assemblies, and I've also ran into the difference in the hole shape for mounting. Most of the ones I have have the round ones, but a few have the oblong or oval ones.
 The one that I removed from my coupe de ville has the oval ones.
 I don't know why they're different, I just figured it was something to do with the year of car, since the same dash fits all 3 years, 54, 55, and 56. But that's just my theory, since I got most of the tops from a friend of mine when he was getting out of the hobby. They were already off of the cars and not marked as to the years they came out of.
 I have noticed that they interchange just fine, but you have to have the correct sleeves or spacers to go with them. As for the rubber grommets, I used some pcv grommets for a Chevrolet small block. Once installed on the dash and the sleeve is put in, you can't tell the difference.
 As for the covering on the top, I'm going to just use the old material for a pattern and hopefully find an upholstery shop that can stitch it together to match the original style. I just haven't gotten that far yet.
 I  hope this answers some of your questions.
thanks Rick! Much appreciated.

Quote from: V63 on March 10, 2023, 11:36:56 PMAll the dashes were shared in 1956. Later years often changed the grain.
all dashes for particular series correct? Not sure series 60 will fit 62's.

 Lol!! Well I had to do it fast to check if I had changed the settings correctly. So I just found the first Cadillac related picture I could find and stuck it on here.
 It honestly has nothing to do with this thread.

 Yes, if you'd like to call that's fine.
 But I think the number listed is wrong now. If it's a 520-307 number, it's wrong.
 Email me if that's listed in here, and I'll send you the correct number.

No preference on color.

Located in Waterbury, CT.  Willing to travel.  I have a truck and trailer.
