Here is a picture of the dash in my old 59 Ghia Vert. The original clock was converted into a Tach. I had a simple bracket made for the other three gauges.

Here’s mine. Quite quickly done, just because I had the fabric and I wasn’t too fond of the wood grain anyway.

I recently found more of the seat fabric, so I may recover the glove box door so it will blend in more.

Man I love your dash my looks close but when I bought my car in the late 70's I wanted to have what I thought at the time was a cleaner look... I pulled the chrome trim, filled the holes and Embarassed threw the trim away... boy am I a dumb ass.

Shocked


YES, ... Yes you are!

Wink ... Laughing

Just kidding, of course.
As the saying goes, "Hindsight is 20/20.".

Personally, I love that 1966-only dash trim but that may just be because my first Karmann Ghia was a Manilla Yellow 1966.

Seeing as that lovely dash trim was unique to just one model year, it's obvious that even the Volkswagen/Karmann designers felt that the trim needed to go as well, so don't beat yourself up about getting rid of it back in the day.

Although not complete, here's the dash in my 71 Vert. The dash came from a 62. Two extra gauge locations were added.
