Instrument Panel Pads
The 60 is smooth black vinyl, the 61 is black vinyl with ribs, and the 62 is gold vinyl with ribs.
Aluminum Trim Panels
There are aluminum panels behind the switch knobs for the headlights, wiper, ignition, and on the dial of the radio and the face of the clock. The panels have a different texture for each year: the 60 is a satin-brushed finish, the 61 is a series of small vertical black bars against bright aluminum, and the 62 is a mesh of black diamonds against bright aluminum.
60 uses a round knob with a black center. 61 uses a round knob with two spikes and a black center. 62 uses a round knob with two spikes and the center is chrome.
The gauges have different styles of printing each year.
This is the 1960 style.
Note the bars aside the C and the H are vertical.
This is the 1961 style.
Note the bars aside the C and the H are tilted.
This is the 1962 style.
Note the horizontal line extend across the full width of the gauge
and there is a second horizontal bar over a cental portion.
The 'halo' around the Astra-Dome is different in 1960. It is a two piece affair that has studs going through the dash. The outer portion has a brushed finish. The 61 and 62 'halo' is a single piece affixed with two screws from the front.
Not only are the radios different year for year with the texture of the dial face plate, the 1960 incorporates the panel bezel into the radio face. For 61 and 62, the bezel is part of the chrome trim piece on the instrument panel.
For cars without radios, the "instrument panel radio opening cover" (often referred to (incorrectly) as the "radio-delete plate") and the right side instrument panel bezel are unique to the 60.
The speedometers are also different. 1960 has graduations at 5 mph while the 61 and 62 have graduations at 1 mph.
