 Re: JDM Dash Comparison
The lower dash in this picture is a Sunny Excellent GL model. The differences are in the speedo & the clock/tach

The GL had a 160kph speedo & came standard with a clock.
The GX had a 180kph speedo & came standard with a tach instead of a clock.

The spanner in the works is the fact that a tach was optional in the GL &, when ordered, the clock was moved to the console, so the tach is not a guarantee that it is a GX dash, it's the 180kph speedo that tells us that it's a GX.

The lower dash has a clock, & the speedo is a 160kph one. I know because I just went into the next room & had a look at it.

I hadn't seen this pic. Thanks for dragging it up. I thought all of the late model hooded guages had the same curvey dash. Hmm. Excellent ...I shall say.

 Re: JDM Dash Comparison
So let me get this straight...

The 'double hump' dash pad was exclusive to the Sunny Excellent. However there was a Sunny Excellent 'GL' which had a clock and 160kph speedo but there was also a Sunny Excellent 'GX' which had the tacho and 180kph?

The Excellent GL and GX is not to be confused with the Sunny 1200 GL & GX which had single humped dash?

Am I correct?

First, the photo is misleading. The top dash is a mutt, we don't know exacty what. For example someone has used an early glove box lid on the later dash

Is that true? I don't think so

I think so as standard equipment, but the tachometer was optional? So photos of cars 30-40 years later don't tell the whole story. The factory parts catalogs and brochures can be consulted to figure out how they were outfitted back in the day

I used to believe that, but have since researched it more. See these two photos of the very same dash:

From this angle this 1200 dash looks like a double-hump


But ... from this angle looks like a single-hump

The car in question is GX-5 photo feature

Would have to completely agree with you.
