Carson City, NV: Classic Dash has announced a new, molded ABS composite dash panel specifically for the 1964-66 Chevrolet Fleetside and Stepside light-duty trucks, arguably the precursors of the leanest, cleanest-looking domestic light-duty trucks ever built. In common with all the company’s previous offerings, this new instrument panel is clean and stylish.
Lightweight and exceedingly rigid ABS plastic sheets are vacuum-formed at 320 degrees Fahrenheit and the material is impregnated with a UV inhibiter that protects it from sun damage. Accuracy is the key feature. A Thermwood 5-axis CNC high-speed router consistently trims the dash panels to within .005-inch, plus or minus.
The dash panel is available in carbon fiber, brushed aluminum, or classic black finishes. All Classic Dash panels are offered in two forms: with or without gauge openings and with or without gauges. Gauges include 10 variations from Auto Meter, 8 from Classic Instruments, and 4 from Dolphin Instruments. Auto Meter kits include wiring harness from gauges to factory loom, LED turn signal indicators, and high-beam and emergency brake light indicators.
Classic Dash’s origins date back to 2002; it was the first company to create replacement ABS composite dash panels for vehicles of the muscle car era. The new team at Classic Dash is led by Greg Wambold, who had established an engineering business that specialized in aerospace and auto racing components.
The state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is located in Carson City, Nevada. Its website has a new make-over with easy navigation and access to ordering. The new staff members are knowledgeable and friendly and can easily answer any technical questions you may have.
For complete instrument panels with gauges, sending units, and wiring harness, prices range $549.95 to $879.95. The cost of just the bare instrument panel is $129.95.
