Watch How The Dashboards Of These Seven Cars Changed Over The Decades

While there are some cars that are only produced for a few years before being dropped, many others have managed to stand the test of time and have existed for decades. The renderings you’ll find below from Budget Direct look at how the interiors of some of the car industry’s most famous vehicles have changed throughout time.

The first car featured is the Chevrolet Corvette. The famed American sports car has been in production since 1953 and is now in its eighth-generation. The GIF you see above doesn’t include the interior of the new C8, but does show the cabins of the first seven generations. Among the most radical changes made to the Corvette through the years are different steering wheels from those of the first three generations which were free of airbags and featured thin metal spokes, to the leather-wrapped wheels of later models.

Another thing that caught our eye is how, for the Corvette’s first seven generations, the gear lever has always been located on the right side of the center console and never centered like so many other cars.

Another vehicle that has undergone serious interior alterations during its production run is the Toyota Corolla. The latest gen has a sleek cabin and is loaded with impressive technologies but, for decades, its interior was bland and less interesting than watching paint dry on a wall.

It is a similar story for the Civic. For its first seven generations, there was nothing particularly interesting going on inside. However, in the last trhee Honda set about creating radical new interiors, helping to give the car some much-needed personality.

Other cars featured include the Ford Mustang, Jaguar XJ, Mercedes SL and Mini Cooper.

    Right hand drive Mustang and Corvette? That’s idiotic. RHD would even be the exception on all the other cars, much more are made LHD, even the Civic and Corolla.
