Any guesses on what year this Pontiac dashboard is from?

It looks like a 59 to me as well. Man I like the chrome trim.

Hopefully GM will put more chrome trim in its G8.

Yeah, I love those old dashboards with all the chrome. I really like the old fashioned steering wheel with the chrome horn ring. And the pushbuttons on either side of the steering column. Notice where the ignition switch is located on the dash, that was common for cars up until about the mid sixties. The 2000+ Bonnes have gone back to that dash mounted ign.

The fins are sweet as well!! Liked them a lot better than the fins on a 59 Chevy.

Aviator, I actually made my guess before looking at the properties. 95SLE had already posted his reply when it dawned on me to look at the "properties". Anyway, that was definitely a different era when those Pontiacs ruled.
