Restoration / Re: Accurate 1969 dash panel replacement?
« Last post by william on March 25, 2017, 02:00:45 AM »
No one.

What we used years before the lousy repro was a new '69-78 Nova dash from GM. Just use the top-the rest of it is different. The later versions of it had an oval-shaped speaker grille so you have to add some louvers.

A good shop could splice the area with the VIN into the repro. Or look around for an NOS Nova dash.

For anyone that needs one and has the dollars - from my home state, sorry to say -

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1968-Z28-Camaro-302-290hp-engine-distributor-1111467-/122398613945?hash=item1c7f86a1b9:g:wngAAOSw5cNYhUfk&vxp=mtr

A little harsh, if you ask me. Good piece anyway, good date, legit.

Regards,
Steve

What happened to the driver's side fender? I thought it said parked in 1976? The fender's not damaged in that pic, but it is in the current one?
I saw that too.
Also, I think it says he went to the dealer and bought everything that was "in stock" for a 69 Z, thus the small pile of parts.

Even that's off - I started buying around parts around 1980, and I danged sure ended up with a lot more than he did (and I didn't spend half my paycheck on 'em. He must not have made a lot as a welder -

I'll stop - I promise. I don't mind fiction, but it gets too much to bear sometimes.

Regards,
Steve

Restoration / Accurate 1969 dash panel replacement?
« Last post by little_hoss on March 25, 2017, 12:07:13 AM »
Wondering who makes an accurate dash replacement panel for 1969 with the correct area cut out for the VIN tag. The couple that I have seen are really squared off and don't look good at all to me. My 69 dash is pretty gone and will need replacement but am hesitant to do so until I find a good replacement for it. Thanks for any input!

Sorry you are correct:

Still a long time for it to sit around. IMO trans was put together after the car

I was understanding the year as model year and all 69s should have a 9? I would guess normally there wouldn't be much to any overlap of reusing a month. But in 69 with the late production they could overlap the same month used in late 68

I believe the trans would have a P8 if it was October of 68. Yes he does think it was a late 68. I tried to describe that even that would be a huge time frame for it to sit around, and he said his "expert" said it fits fine. I thought instead of getting into the minutia of trans date sit would be better for him to talk to an expert. So I passed along Steves info (thanks Steve)
