Curious about the look of some other FL cars' instrument lighting. Which one of you shutterbugs wants to go first?

I'll bite. 57 Plymouth at night. Bad photo, but I was using a cheap camera with the flash off.

Nice light up ignition switch. I didn't know that was an option.

Standard on Fury/Belvedere, optional on Savoy/Plaza, or not offered at all on S/P?

As cleared up by a recent thread, the Fury was the same as Plaza in all respects. I expect
the keen historian making that claim would suggest they all got light-up ignition switches too ?

Let's keep our facts straight, OK !

That illuminated light switch is cool! It would look even better if it lit up green to match the dash.

Nice work, both of you...never knew about the ignition option.

Let's see some more, people! Does a DeSoto glow green too? Does that translucent speedo in a '61 Dodge light up? Whose "panelescent" setup still works?

My parents owned a '61 Dart Seneca, and the speedometer in that car lit up green at night.

My '57 Imperial, green and (deep) purple. Some defect on the speedo at 4 o' clock because the dark purple ring has lost his "paint".
Seems that the original lighting was purple and white rather than green.

I haven't ever been in my car at night so I have no idea what works and what doesn't. Before I bought it I tested and all the headlights/tail/brake lights work. I will have to test this out and give you a pic of my "unfinished" dash.

Anyone else have a picture of either their car or dash at night? I think these are very cool pictures that not everyone gets to see. Most of our cars aren't driven much at night, and even if they are, they are not seen by others. Post a picture if you have one...

Very cool Thord! I am curious about the placement of your clock in your dash. I have a 56 Dodge and my clock is next to the temp with the ash tray on the right of the clock. Do you know if it was different from 55 to 56?

Greg, they actually switched position between clock and ash tray from 55 to 56, I've checked the owners manual to verify it's the correct positon.
In my view when driving the ash tray is hidden by the steering wheel and I've a good view of the clock.
My clock isn't working, it stopped at quarter to 6 when James Dean was killed in the accident in 1955.

The illuminated ignition switch on '57/'58 Plymouths was an option for sure. I don't think it was even standard on Furys. Definitely not standard on Belvederes.


My 1960 Fury's dash. Looks like some kind of evil robot! Some of the green lenses have fallen off which is why some of the lights are not green...and the seal around some of the pushbuttons is gone..which allows the light to seep through.

If anyone (especially those with the separate push button module) has light leaking from around the push-buttons,
you can, simply, custom cut-out a piece of felt, so that the felt closes-tightly around the buttons, but does not affect
their movement.

In addition to the felt, there's also some card board tunnels that block the light leaking around the temp lever and the turn signal lever on the '60-'62

I am curious about those of you have converted your dash lights to LED. Are you using the replacement LED lights they sell on Ebay? Do you have a problem with LED lights directing the light only forward (depending on how the bulb is mounted in the dash. How many LED/s per bulb did you use? Did you replace with white LED lights or did you use the color of your dash (I.E. green)?

It works but I don't know how well it keeps time. I generally turn it off except at car shows so it doesn't wear out.

I always get a warm safe feeling whenever I see the glow of the dash from one of these old cars.
I flash back to the days being a kid sitting on the edge of the back seat resting my chin on the back of the front seat looking down the road as we traveled to great grandma's or on vacation.
We always left on a Friday night after Grandpa got home from work. He loved to travel at night when the traffic was almost nonexistent.
