Agreed, never offered on the car when it was new.

Also there was only one kind of Can Am dash, its one way to spot a potential replica....

curious,

Canam dash, was it unique to the Canam or were there firenza's with a similar and/or modified setup. basically would it be possible to replicate a canam interior setup using firenza parts?

Basically its a Firenza dash with certain unique to the Can Am pieces, the basic dash is the same but the details differ fairly substantially.

I remember once going to look at a "Can Am" and discovering it was in fact actually a Firenza SL coupe which had had a 350 put into it...

As for the interior as whole, nope it would not because there some of the parts, notably the seats were not from a Firenza...
