Original 68 dash pad?
« on: May 01, 2023, 11:31:49 PM »
I bought it because it had the deluxe trim on it. Curious about the made in Canada history. Chime in and we can all learn.

Pads were made in Canada. Just about every one I’ve owned had the Canadian ink stamp.


1968 Pads sold

Parted out a 68 years ago and sold the pad. Stamped Canada. Parted out many cars and sold many, Junked some too. Looked at a graphic job today with an abandoned 67 behind the shop. All over the place if you do this everyday. A lot of owners leave their cars at shops with no intention of doing them. Take them all home and do what you like with them.

Obviously there was a stamping design change…any idea when that happened?
