Default Re: 1941 instrument panel

To illustrate the point that I mentioned in my previous Post, these cars use the carry-over 1941 Style Dash. In the top photo, we have an Australian 1947 Ford Super Deluxe. The middle Photo shows an Australian 1948 Mercury, while the bottom photos shows a New Zealand 1946 Mercury. You will notice that the Australian assembled cars didn't have the "vents" in the Windscreen moldings, while the NZ car does. that is because no Heaters or Demisters were available in cars assembled in Australia. All of these RHD models use the equivalent Ford or Mercury 1941 Style Dash.
