All that money & time and he can't spend 19.95 for a dash bezel? This one looks definately original, with the optional "no chrome". Were radials original equipment? Or Cragars?

On the original tire question. I'm fairly confident that Firestone did not make the Firehawk tire in 1965. Further, raised white letter tires (other than the Goodyear Blue Streak racing tires) were not factory issued until about 1969 and even then, it was bias ply (such as Goodyear Polyglas and Firestone Wide Oval) I don't believe that the radial tires offered back then had the raised white letters.
