I am trying to figure out how to tell what year these instrument clusters came from.One has no switches and the other has wiper and ignition switch. TIA.

Top one looks like 1964, bottom one 1962

The bottom picture is a '63. I 'think' the top one is for 64, but in my mind I'm not clear on the difference between the '64 and the very similar '61.
Differences AFAIK are only the styling of the trim plate where the switches are. Also early 500s have the painted bezel instead of chrome AFAIK.
1962 has a distinctive 'houndstooth-ish' pattern to the trim.

Bottom one for sure 63. Top one looks 64. 61 also had "choke" printed on the left side as well as more of a checkered pattern where as 64 just had vertical lines.

Tim, by checkered, I think that applied more to the '62. Where the '61 (thanks for clearing that up) is more like a grid maybe, no coloring.

Identify the years: Glovebox doors

That top Glove box door is a '61.
While I do not know EM's very well, I do recognize what was on my very first Corvair!

62 on the middle one. Can't quite make out the pattern on the bottom one. Looks almost like a Spyder (satin) without the Spyder emblem.

Sorry for the low resolution (blame the website restrictions). That lower one is a 1964. If you blow it up you can barely see the lines.
