Good luck with that. Most of the old dashes crack. They are not too bad to repair but does take a bit of a touch. I know there are new ones available but I think they are expensive and have a wait time. Keep in mind that any colour will work and can be dyed to match your interior. Also the 79 and up have a larger opening for the radio.

The repops are not perfect, but well worth the money, especially if you are on Classic Industrie's mailing list and snag one 30% off.  The only issue with mine was A pillar fitment.

78 and up have larger radios, and that version isn't made in repro dashes.

77 and up have the larger opening, but you can always cut the opening to accept the larger radio (it'll be covered by the bezel anyways).

I don't know much about Just Dashes but I know they can restore your old dash to like new or sell you a remanufactured one.  I think a quote would give you an idea about the price of either.  Although I don't need a dash I bookmarked them just in case.

Actually, it is 78 and up that have the different size radio hole versus the 70-77. Here is a pic of the difference, which also shows that the space/divider between the radio hole and the ashtray hole is a noticeably different measurement too. The thinner 3/8" divider is the 70-77, and the 3/4" is 78-81.

Unfortunately not, and I do not have a photobucket replacement since those greedy assholes cut off linking.  I can send you a few pix if desired if you send an email to me.
