Yes it will. The instrument cluster and bezel fits the same 69 - 76, there are minor differences in the grain pattern and the shape of the small openings for the clock and the fuel gauge.

the dash I asked the previous owner about (which he said he threw away)
my question is can I take it to go get re-done , or will one of those covers fit on there ?
how about re-doing it myself? has anyone re-did there own before?

Rafael.

I have never seen one stripped that far down. A good upholsterer can make it look good, but it will be hard to get it to lay flat all the way across. Much easier to repair cracks and stretch a new cover on then start from the shell. I was going to have mine done but found a good one to use.

Thanks for the reply
I went to a couple upholstery shops around my area and all of them said they couldn't do it so I looked online and found a company called justdashes, I talked to someone over the phone and gave me a quote of $700 .
So i've decided to re upholster it my self , I have about 2 yards of marine vinyl leftover from another project , and I ordered some 1/4" closed cell foam witch will get here on monday, hopefully it comes out ok . Any tips or suggestion would be great .

The foam base needs to be thicker than 1/4" and somehow made more rigid to hold shape when the vinyl is stretched over it.
