adding guage pkg

I have a 66 impala SS 396 w/out air. Iam trying to install a factory guage pkg.which sits on top of the console, but the brushed aluminum pieces on the ashtray and dash are in the way.

Do cars w/ guage pkg have an entirely different dash setup or a different cluster? is there a way to make this work and look factory?.

PS: if I remove the brushed aluminum, I end up with holes in my dash and ashtray!!! Has anyone done this before? THNX

I don't know the answer to your question. I can say that GM never made anything to fit just one car (except maybe the 'vette). Your parts exist in the GM catalog on another make or model so do not restrict your search to just Impala cars of your year. Look at the Chevelle and Camaro/Nova catalogs as well , or at Pontiac or Buick/Olds cars for your missing gauge package. All B-bodies rolled down the same production line so the car ahead of your Chevy might have been a Pontiac or an Olds and the car behind it could have been a Buick or a Caddy.

There were special dash pieces for a gauge car. I think they were actually padded.
