Default original dash pad for 68

Hi!
Im searching for a good 68 ( or 67 ) dash pad.
Color is not important ( will be dyed to match the interior ), but no cracks is a must

Hello, I have either a 68 or 67 black dash pad that is in very good shape, I will check when I am home in a couple of days to see for sure the year.

On my 68 vert the (original) dash pad slips under the VIN tag, so I thought 67 and 68 are same.

I believed there was a cutout for the VIN tag on 68s but Ive never seen one in person...
Could there be differences in production-dates/plants?

So, just to be clear, theres no cut-out on your dash Slim?

impaw, look at the VIN plate on your dash. Mine is riveted at the top (toward the windshield) then goes toward the interior "hanging free". Then the pad slips under it.

I believe sometimes this gets pushed down and the pad installed over it. Then the owner thinks there's no VIN on the dash!

Unless it's missing it should be on the passenger side near the windshield.

For your assurance you may want to post the question on the vintage forum. The concours forum is best for correct concours info but sometimes takes a while!

Go to the vintage forum...I just brought up the 68 VIN question. There are some really good pics with and without the pad.

Hello,

It appears to be for a 67 as it does not have the cutout for the vin.
It is in excellent shape minus the tabs on te ends which could be added easily I would think. Ihave checked on E*ay and one has recently sold in similar shape for 700.00.

Yeah the missing studs seem to be the norm.
would you mind sending me a couple of pictures, to
ttmorstad@gmail.com
Especially of the area around the missing studs

I cannot match the 700$ pricetag Im afraid, but I can give you an offer after Ive seen the photos.
Ive searched ebay for a while now, and most pads seem to go for around 150$-200$, but they might have been in a poorer condition than yours...

For $700.00 it must have been NOS.
