Modern dash
#1
tach 
Anyone know the guy that put a 05-09 dashboard in his 71-73? I want to ask him a few questions because I am putting a 2011 dash in my 71 coupe. I have spent the last hour searching the forum for this particular person and have had no luck. Thanks guys!

I'm planning to go seriously restomod with the dash in my '71. Would love to see pics of what you come up with. Sounds very cool.

I considered a dash from a '94-'98. I figured the cars were similar in size. I would like to see some pics too.

Yeah there was just a post within the last couple of weeks with a picture of it in the thread, but I cannot find it! I went to a local salvage yard yesterday and found an entire dash and center console for $500! Great price, but I am not ready to spend that money on this portion of my project yet, plus I don't have an extra 500 laying around. I figure it shouldn't be too hard, maybe a bracket along the bottom of the windshield for the modern dash to sit on so I don't have to cut it to conform to the bottom of the windshield and a couple of brackets on the ends to bolt to. I think the only hard part would be getting the center console to line up with the shifter without making any cuts, but I guess I could wrap it in something like vinyl or paint it if I had to...not sure.

This eBay car has an SN95 dash and tub:

The stats on that guy's Marti Report are awesome. My Marti report basically says, "Your car will never, ever be concourse, but that way lies madness. Game on."

Funny thing - the Marti for the crazy eBay car essentially states: "This car could have been concourse, but some fool decided that it'd be better to cut it up, stick an SN95 under it, and put huge wheels on it that do not reflect the relative torque of the engine."

Yeah. Given the car's uniqueness and value, he'd have done much better not to go all restomod with it. My car, I'm going to shoot for something which is, at a glance, stock, but with plenty of modernity hidden away.

Yeah I saw that car a while back, pretty hideous if you ask me. There is nothing mustang about the interior of an SN95, at least the 05+ mustangs dash pays a little homage to the originals.

Indeed. On the other hand, Ultra-Fox is a perfect example of how good the S197 dash looks in an earlier car (in this case, a Foxbody):
