I have a complete 50 model champion dash for my car and I am wondering if a Commander dash is significantly different ?

Can someone here post a picture of the Commander dash (if it is different)



Thanks,

Dean.

It's completely different.

But should easily interchange as a complete unit.

I would think so too, Brad.

A '50 Commander or Land Cruiser is one of the few cars that I'd trade my '57 Broadmoor for.

I've always thought that the way they integrated the 50 Comm switches into that chrome band was really slick. Funny how they got away from that after only one year.

Youre right Matthew,
That dash looks really close to my 52 commander dash.
It's buried right now but is it possible that they are the same and if not does anyone know if a 52 could be altered ?
The speaker panel looks different but the guages seem the same.

If so I may have a complete 50 Champion dash I don't need.

Dean.
