  • Dash support

    Greetings,
    All the vendors show the “H” dash support as two different part numbers. What is the difference between the early support and the late support and will they interchange?
    My issue is I have no support installed in my ‘74 and the one sitting in the boot is marked in the finest salvage yard yellow as a ‘71. I’d like to install it if possible.

    I think there may be a couple of differences...an additional hole and the vinyl pattern...someone will know for sure, though.

      The two styles differ in the radio cutout & some inconsequential holes- you may have to drill your '71 console if you need the holes.

      When you fit the support, you want the carpet & underlayment out of the way- just down to the bare gearbox cover is what works.. It's a real precise fit.
      Fit your top bolts/nuts and foot bolts loosely- just get them started in their threads.
      Then use a flat screwdriver, or such, to push the material under the support.
      After carpet is where you want it, then tighten down the bolts/nuts.

        Early cars that had the little light between the seats, didn’t have the pull switch for lighting as they had on later cars. I suspect there’s a whole drilled regardless tho. The covers probably won’t have holes. You put them where you want

        I think I have a few dash supports. Some that have had metal cut for modern radios and some that haven’t

        lemme know if you need me to check. I’m reasonable on price

          The early supports (69-72) didn't have a hole below the radio for the interior light switch (a pull knob). If you relocate or eliminate that switch you can use it, or you could drill the support to accommodate it...

              The plinth light bar won't fit the early brackets. The vinyl was stepped on the later brackets to accomidate the bar. There is also a cutout at the top where the wires for the light bar to

                Also the 68-69 didn't have the steps on the side to hold the kidney pads

                  Did the ‘69 not have kidney pads? I’ve wondered about it because mine doesn’t have them, but other fiberboard panels were also missing or replaced, so I assumed maybe water damage at some point.

                    No, the 68-69 did not have kidney pads. I swapped my 250 H frame for a later one so that I could use them. I have a very good 250 frame stored somewhere
