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. "

Thanks for the explanation. Fascinating. My car is on the rotisserie and strip down to a bear tub. I have 180 degree headers and Weber's in the GT40 inspired build. I have not even considered the GT40 style Dash. My car has a 2 pod dash so you would not be interested in that but I'm seriously considering the GT40 dash swap.  And for that matter I like what you did with your seat Arrangement as well. It wouldn't be a tremendous burden right now because my car is completely stripped down to the last Nut and Bolt while I tweaked some metal work. 

I wonder if anybody has ever bought a fiberglass or carbon fiber Dash from one of the GT40 replica companies, like you mentioned, and tried to fit it on the Pantera? Besides Jack of course. I'd be curious to hear of somebody else's experience on that. To compare.
