Early MGBs up until May of 1963 production had a very fine chrome insert between the gauge cowl and the dashboard itself. This insert is part of the gauge cowl. These have never been reproduced and given the small number of cars with this insert, finding one can be difficult. Photo 1 shows the later cowl used to the end of steel dash production and Photo 2 shows the early one, with the chrome insert used until sometime in May of 1963.
