Default 04-06 GTO Dash in 69 Camaro?

Anyone attempted this or thinks it is possible, say using the gauge faces and mechanical guts also to make it a little easier!

Sure it's possible but be prepaired to make a bunch of custom pieces and spend lots of time. I put a 95 Firebird dash and console into an 87 Pontiac Fiero. Hanging the dash was the easy part. Making it look like it belonged there was the tricky part.

Pay attention to the transition from the back of the dash to the base of the windshield and the ends of the dash at the A-pillars. These are critical transition areas. Using aftermarket mechanical guts will simplify the electrical/mechanical/environmental gauges and controls but you still have to find room for everything.

Good Luck.

now after reading this, I'm going to have to look at my '69 Camaro and my '04 GTO when I get home and start thinking

I also have two more gauges in a pod in the center of my GTO dash because they didn't come stock with oil pressure or voltage gauges

Default It can be done ...

This is my 69 TA that I put an 04 GTO dash in











Seats are from an 04 BMW M3 vert.

Default GTO interior

Sam,
That looks awesome, I have purchased an '06 GTO interior and am looking forward to installing the seats, have you any advice on seat brackets. I would like to keep the power track feature and tilt etc.. Are you planning on installing the rear seat from the GTO, if so can you send me some info on what you had to do to fit it?
Thanks,
Greg

Thanks, Greg. What car is it going into? The GTO front seats were too wide to fit in my car. Some guys have made them work but for my purposes because the GTO console is wider than say a 1st gen console, I couldn't use the GTO seats. I went with BMW M3 seats. They are narrower and have a shoulder belt incorporated in. I will be using the rear seats though, but will have to modify them to make them fit.
