it does help reduce the inside temps

also keeps your interior from sun-fade/ dash cracking...

if you have a leather interior, highly recommended

i got the silver,foil-type one

i've since upgraded to those pop-up types... easier to deploy & fold down to a small disc to stash between the center console & passenger seat

I don't have the patience to fool with one on my daily driver but my '61 Thunderbird has a dash cover that always goes in when the car is outside and not in motion.
