    Your gonna have to specify which one. Chevy and GMC are not the same for 1960-66. Chevy has it's own dash for 60-63 and 64-66. GMC kept the same basic dash for 1960-66, but used a metal back panel in 60-61 and a plastic one 62-66.

    It doesn't matter as long as it's 60-63 and complete, I don't want 64 -66. It's not going in that era truck. I'm going to try and fit it in my 89 crew. 60-63 has the "eyebrow" over the instrument panel 64-66 runs straight across.

    So you want the 60-63 Chevy or 60-63 GMC? My guess is the Chevy one since you mention the eyebrow dash... only Chevy has that. I see them on Ebay constantly, well I did back when I was heavy into 60-66 trucks...

    I've been checking ebay, no luck so far. You seem to know more than I do, but when I google both brands the dashes seem real similar in shape. If what you say is correct than I want Chevy. US Body source has the 64-66 in fiberglass for 300.00, not the right style as it is straight and more than I really want to spend

    60-63 Chevy and 60-66 GMC are similar. But not even close to the same. GMC has one hump on the drivers side and flat on the center to pass side. Chevy is double humped on 60-63 and flat all across on the 64-66.

    http://www.6066gmcguy.org/ has alot of 60-66 GMC info and pics

    Don't know of one good site like that for the Chevy's but I was trying to build one at one point... just never had the time for it.

    Thanks for pointing out the difference. I was only seeing 3/4 pics. I would definetly prefer the Chevy. I would use a GMC if that was all I could find. I'm not in any hurry.
