It's amazing what you can do with a pressure washer ...and a toothbrush.

Really nice and shiny! Interior looks excellent... don't think any Fusey C had
round gauges, less'n you count the sort of round-square speedo on the
69-73 Furys and 71-73 Dodges. How did they do a factory tach on Fuseys
- on the console?

I was just never a fan of the fusey dash...  Got away from the roundness of the 60's C dash..

I love the console.. I don't think I have ever seen a C with a factory console...

A cluster like a 65/66 wou;d look out of place though.  They are typical over designed dash boards

I would love to try putting the buckets and a console shifter like that in the wagon. Not at the top of the project list, but I think it would be cool.

Fury GT and S-23 had an available console, and I can't remember
positively, but am pretty sure an optional tach was available too, and
it woulda had to go there, no room for one in the dash panel.

One on the hood like Pontiac woulda been cool!

That's a total of 4 tires, master, booster, one wheel cylinder, sending unit, tank cleaning, wiper blades and I' m good for now. Plugs, wires and pertronix when the 300 is done.

Nice job.  It's nice to finally get it inspected and registered.  Then being able to drive it "safely" around as well.

No.
 
To some of the other comments, there were a large number of Fusey Cs with consoles, especailly 300s.  There was a Newport on ebay recently with one.  They are out there.
 
This Monaco looks great!  I must agree, however, that I don't like the dash.  I do like the Chrysler dash of '69-'71, but not the Dodge.  It's a taste issue.  It does not detract from the beauty of this car though.
