Corvette Central C1 Dash Insert Overview

Ever since they were designed into the 1958 Corvette, passenger side dash inserts have been a somewhat of a headache for Corvette owners. The OEM inserts were subject to damage that the rest of the interior could generally resist. In a short time span, these inserts became dinged, dented or scratched, making the dash of C1 Corvettes look years older than they were. While aluminum dash inserts have been available for many years, the installation has always been time consuming and difficult…

…until now, that is! Corvette Central has all of the well-received, U.S. made C1 aluminum insert and insert assemblies, for 1958 Corvettes with white letters, 1959 with black letters and the 1960-62 versions with red and blue bars.

C1 owners now have the luxury of replacing their dash inserts at any time. (more…)
