Initially I had issue with the '67-'68 dash theme with the rectangular center vents and round outer vents, but the dog-bone shape comes off much better in person and moves the navi higher for better viewing. Among the vast interior improvements are the open-piece soft dash, aluminum badges, bright chrome accents, lockable console, and a flip-top cup holder cover (let's hope it fares better than the Fox ashtray door), but the biggest improvements are the materials and tolerances. "If you look at a lot of old Mustangs, you'll see that it's not just the instrument panel and the console. They are kind of designed as one shape, and that's how I designed this," Gelardi says. "The arc sweeps all the way back uninterrupted to the rear passenger footwell. What that does is now you have unobstructed room for your elbow to move back while you are shifting."
