Shown are two cars dash's that are very original. The top one is a 1975 Mark 3. The music system is fitted at the right lower side below the dash. Guess this is how the older music systems used to be fitted.

The 1952 Vanguard here and the music system is a very late entrant here which totally mars the beauty of the period dash.

On another day, we drove fifty miles at about 60 MPH in his second car, an early twenties Vauxhall 30/98, to join a few mates of his at a village pub. They turned up in their steeds, another 30/98, and an early veteran Daimler special. It was utter automotive bliss!
who owns the wesum 30/98? david white by any chance?

This is an extraordinary photo of a 1955 Bel Air Chevrolet. Bought one new after serving two years in Korea. How fondly I remember it.

Thanks noonrock.The Belair also came alive in the pop hit "Do you believe in love?" video of Cher (1999).
Do you still have your Belair ? Do please post pictures as it will be a pleasure viewing them.

Veldeep, thanks (sorry for the delayed thanks after more than a year) for the lovely dash of a once common but today very rare car (rarer than older Rolls Royces and Mercs in India). Seeing one after a long time. But there's a surprise element here!
The speedo is located to the left and the gauge meter towards the driver. Is that the original configuration? Your speedo though a Smiths appears to be akin to the one fitted in older Heralds.
