Yeah, I need one too... I've had the car for a week. I'm already tired of the split and bowed dash always staring at me like it's a gap-toothed inbred smiling back at me...

Is there a secret stash of these things somewhere?

Anyone? Anyone?

Can ya hear me now?? good... can ya hear me now?? good

The only place I have found is a company called JustDashes. I'm not sure if you are familiar with them or not, but they don't sell you a new dash, they restore your old one. (It is outrageously expensive). I NEED to find somewhere else. I know they are out there! Someone tell me the secret :)

Hi Guys!! A lot of cougar parts vendors will carry reproductions I know that Mustangs Unlimited does and probably Cascade Classics. If you want an original check out West Coast Classic Cougars, Don has a bunch of cougars for parts. Then there is always eBay...the odd nice dash pad pops up now and then. But in all cases expect to pay a good buck!!

yeah, I had seen them somewhere, Mustangs Unlimited maybe..

they were going for something like $350 as I recall. Youch! Does that come with some sort of lubricant and maybe a kiss?

Guess I'll keep looking, there's not much of mine to rebuild... it's so heat damaged that it's shrunk (is that really a word?) and pulled away from the ends into a "smile" with a split from front to back, the area above the guages is droopy... quite the combo...

Guess I'll keep lookin...

Hey 67, if you tell us which vendors you contacted so far, maybe someone will come up with one that you haven't reached yet?

PS. Did you see the pad for sale in 67-68 Parts for Sale?

I just got a blue one in with some very small cracks on the psg side. It could probably be fixed and then redyed. Email me if you are interested. John @ Cascade Classics (253) 863-5669.

The latest word from the supplier is the end of June. The first run will be black, but they are also planning on blue and maroon. Looks like around $350-$375. I'm sure they will appear on EBay and go for much higher so beware. Let me know if you need one and I'll contact you just as soon a they are available. Thanks.

mustang plus and alot of others have dash caps for 69.00 you glue em down and they if done right dont look half bad from the ones i have seen and it is a group cheeper than a new one. matters on what you want to spend.
