Title: 72 and 73 Polara Dash Pads
Post by: Steve on September 17, 2010, 06:09:09 AM
Anybody know if the 72 and 73 Dash pads are the same or not?  I don't care about looks

As far as I know they are, and also in common with the '71 Dodge (69 +
70 Dodge dash panel was totally different)  and also same as 69-73
Plymouth... I think the only differences were the logo plate that went
on the pass side.

My 71 F3 one is garbage, so if you see a good one you
don't need, please let me know! Color doesn't matter. Even a few small
cracks by the windshield vents or spakers would be OK. Mine is really
bad.  FuryFever Bob has a good one for $500.

72/73s had a woodgrain band around the outer edge of instrument panel,
and a raised area on the pass side the 70/71 didn't have, but the pad
shape overall looks the same. 70/71 are identical and 72/73 seem
identical, so you should be good....anyone
comes across a decent one they don't need please lemme know, my dash is
THE single worst looking thing on the whole car!
