Wanted: 1967 San Jose built 1967 non ac firewall pad
« on: January 11, 2018, 09:11:05 PM »
Looking for 1967 non ac, San Jose pattern firewall pad for my 1967 Shelby project.  Will consider any usable restorable options at this point.  Desperate and do not want to use reproduction if at all possible, but getting ready to reassemble soon.  All responses appreciated.

I considered buying a decent under 10k car to get its firewall pad and dash.
Replace the parts with repops, sell the car and move on.

I finally bought a parts car to get the dash and firewall pad.
Yes, they are very hard to find.

You might consider finding an earlier SJ car's pad and peel off the pimple plastic surface.
Apply that to a repop pad in all the visible places.
