    I meant ask what is wrong besides the obviously uninstalled steering wheel

            The color of the dash and the color of the instruments?

              There's no miles on the odometer?
              Or should the dashboard be wood grained?

                    My guess was dash color also.
                    Most I've come across was a medium fawn-grey color.

                      Looks like slotted screws in the window mouldings instead of Phillips head.

                        Shouldn't the speedometer go to 100?

                            Given my history of trouble posting pictures, the answer I expected to see was "everything" because there probably wouldn't be a picture. But, miracles apparently still happen. I'm surprised. Anyway, Those are newly restored instruments in my Coupe-express for the first time this weekend as I installed the dash and wiring harnesses etc. The actual paint color of the dash is darker. The camera flash made it look almost white. I was wondering about the 100 mph speedo. The speedometer I had restored came out of a coupe-express so I'm wondering if they were different. All the pictures I took of Dictator cars at South Bend last year showed the 100 mph speedometer. Good eyes everyone. There is also supposed to be a toggle switch for the instrument lights under the dash under the ammeter, but haven't gotten to it yet. Tom

                              Obviously, Tom, the most heartfelt issue is, it doesn't belong to the salivator! I seriously doubt you will be wanting to push 100 mph anyway. Looks very sweet!
