Symmetry found its place again and decorative devices came from classical figures, swags, garlands, laurel wreaths and urns. Flamboyance could still be seen in the beds where ostrich feathers adorned many a corona and the fabric of choice was the eye-boggling Toile de Jouy.

The standard dials can usually be replaced easily by removing the instrument panel and overlaying a pre-printed panel. White backgrounds are popular and these have the added advantage of being easily seen at night. Strangely when the dash illumination turns on at night the numbers will glow and the white background will go dark, at least that was the effect in my Corolla.
