Q: Burlwood Dash for 1969
Question on dash and console burlwood: Would the console be burlwood and dash not, or would they both be the same i.e both burl or both black.
A: OK guys, the Burlwood trim is used on all consoles in 1968 and 1969, and all 68 dash center plates, and on the 1969 Custom trimmed dash ONLY. That means if your 1969 car came with Standard trim and a console, the console is burlwood, but the dash is not. The 1969 sales brochure referred to the dash as “camera-case grain”, and is black within the chromed finish border, and matches the interior color outside the border. The consoles you may have seen with a black grained finish are from 1967 Firebirds or Camaros, and if you take the burlwood applique off you console, you will see what that looks like. In 1967, the dash center plate had a straight grained wood-like finish, no wood on the console.
