Reply to "Wanted - Late Model (Single Pod) Pantera Dash and Console!"

This is a one-off done by Jack Richards, who owned the car many years ago.  According to the articles he wrote, he had ERA (who used to make GT40 replicas) make him a dash out of carbon fiber.  Apparently the curvature along the top front along the windshield is pretty much a perfect match.  He cut the side extensions that go to the floor on the '40 shorter as you can see from the picture.  The other mod is the notch for the steering column had to be moved to the left an inch or so to align with the Pantera column location.  The column on this car is a newer Ford tilt column with aluminum covers.  The center console was removed and the driver's seat moved over to to the center of the car to align with the steering wheel and pedals so that you drive with legs straight ahead.  My ability to fit is the main reason why I bought the car.   When I showed it to Steve Wilkinson, he thought it was cool that the gauges were all up high in your field of view.  I thought about making a mold of the dash before I sell the car, but not sure if many people would buy it because of the work involved.  You also have to use aftermarket A/C and do some rewiring.
