Dave, Roger, thanks a lot!

...Isn't your statement "in 1940 the dashboard of one of the most luxuriant Packard's of all times, the One-Eighty, was chock-full of cheap synthetic material", reflect more hindsight than foresight? Wouldn't what are now viewed as cheap dash plastic, be viewed in 1940 as new cutting edge materials?

Exactly as described by Mal, the talk revolves around "ordinary glass" as opposed to "crystal clear plastic".
Roger, was the illuminated pointer limited to 1941 or available in 1942 too?
