For whatever little it may be worth, the box original to my Mark IA as 
delivered to me new from the dealer has rivets. I still have it in somewhat 
collapsed/torn condition in a cabinet (just checked to be sure), Car's vin is 
1447, which is certainly not end of production, but is at least a point of 
reference in terms of production line usage.

This is an interesting question. The Alpine Parts List has several 
diagrams of the cubby and they all show what appear to be rivets. 

A change to staples means: 
1 - there was a change in assembly line for the cubby 
2 - the cubby was sourced from a different manufacturer 
3 - more cubbies were needed for production - a 2nd source was used 
4 - staples were a cost reduction measure 
5 - Staples = reproduction??? 

My early Mk IA Tiger was produced in Aug 1965; it has a stapled cubby but I 
think it is a reproduction since I had to make attachment clips to secure it 
to the dash. 

I'll have to look to see if I still have an original cubby. Seems to me I 
have one hiding somewhere.

My cubby is the original one. It was riveted, and it is a MK1. I do not know 
if they changed them after the 1965, but it is interesting fact if the later 
ones were stapled. Anyone have any facts on this, or input. What year and 
is your cubby stapled or riveted. There may be a lot of reproduction ones 
out there, and people do not realize they have been replaced.

Hi Terry: 
The riveted cubby must be date/Se # specific . My car (B382000450) has the 
original cubby still fitted, and it has staples. Do you know when the 
rivet/staple transition took place? 
What is the se # of your car? Does it have a riveted cubby?

The original cubby was riveted not stapled
