I just pruchased a 63.5 galaxie 500 xl and the heater and the speedo cluster have a black background. I found another dash at a swap meet and bought it that the speedo and heater controls have a cream colored background. Just wondering what the cream colored background dash came out of.

As far as I know, the '63 was black, the '64 was the lighter color.

63 was black and 64 was argent(silver). If it is cream maybe it was argent and it's been stained by cigarette smoke. Seen that before.

i acctually have that speedo..and maybe its the same post you seen...
i did some test fitting..
and it lookes as it can be fitted to galaxie dash really easy...
it will be a future project...then install new style small gauges .at .oil,temp,fuel,volt location..
also trim out a small section in center between small gauges to fit a mini tach....
