I love Chrysler for their cutting edge style. But that steering wheel was IGNORANT. I remember driving one, it was DANGEROUS for crying out loud!

But like I say, I give them big points for trying.

I didn't know that. The only reason I recognized that wheel is a neighbor bought a new Polara in 61 that had that wheel and I spent a lot of time trying to find one to put in my 55 Chev that I bought in 63. A curious thing about the Polara, It came on the train to Pierre on a flatcar and was wrapped in quilted blankets in a huge wooden crate. The neighbor borrowed a forklift from us to get it off the traincar. Not my question, but does anyone know why it was packed that way?


Now for the question: In 1961 , Pontiac Bonneville had an odd difference in the dashes of Airconditioned and non Airconditioned cars. It had nothing to do with the ac controls. What was it?

You can't ask a new question unless you have answered the last question.

Answer 61bones question and then you can ask one.

The answer to yours was 46-48 in cars and I believe 46-47 in trucks.

OK, here's a hint. For any color dash pad, the parts book show a different part numbers for A/C pads and non A/C pads even though they will interchange on the car with no modification. Why?

Does it say something, like "Air Condidtioned" or something like that?

Nope, none of these. The difference is in the pad itself.
another clue: When installed, they look identical. When the pieces are laying on the bench, the difference is very obvious.
I was sure some Pontiac guy would hit this in a minute.

Wild guess:

The dash speaker was in in a different spot on an AC car.
