Smooth Dash


Milt

Recommended Posts

When I bought my 63 it was advertised as having the rare smooth dash option. The dash has no ribs as all other early Avantis I have seen. Is this rare option true or was the dash replaced. The other odd thing about my car is that it did not come with power steering. The factory power steering parts were added later.

Power steering was an option, so it's not unusual to see it added. There was no smooth dash option to the best of my knowledge. Of course, if your car was an original prototype (there are a few of them out there), the smooth dash might have been done but that's conjecture on my part. Prototype cars also came with the rear view mirror mounted on a ball socket on the dash rather than be glued to the windshield. They also VIN's added later with numbers outside the R1001-R5643 range.

If your car isn't a prototype, the dash was changed later or professionally recovered and filled in.
