Agreed. I kinda wonder how fake wood would look in one of these modern Mopars. Looked pretty damn good in the classic ones! And today, they make some pretty convincing fake materials... could even be better than the old ones.I'd rather have fake wood
Yeah, that burl walnut or whatever is sharp. My previous 2 Cadillac SRXs had real wood, DARK grey, Ravenwood maybe? It was super sharp in the sunlight, the grain looked 3D, that would look awesome in a Challenger. My 2012 JGC Overland has real wood on dash, doors, steering wheel, it is nice too, might be OK in a Challenger, then add in a matching wood pistol grip, and rock the town. I think this is some of the black real wood that was in it. It was super sharp.My favorite fake wood dash was in the '68 Mercury Montego/Cyclone. I thought it was pretty attractive for fake wood.
a lot of models - if it didn't have the higher trim level / woodgrain - it was textured black plastic.While it looks so fake now, it was part of the charm of these cars.
Any more pics of the Cyclone? My friend has a '69 Drag Pack SCJ 428 4 speed

The woodgrain dressed it up.
In higher end cars there was actual wood veneers used (Lincoln and Buick did in the 60s at times (maybe Cadillac as well), but in the mass production models, is was applique'.
European cars used wood veneers throughout the decades - the trend is now metal finishes or CF, and some offer wood veneers as options...
