Re: Just mailed my dash pad off to Al Knoch

Saw this thread and it made me go take a picture of the one out of my 68 that needs a restoration as well

According to our date logic, this dash pad just reached its 45th birthday.



I'll be watching this thread to see the final product!

Have not seen those personally but sure they are doing a fine job in that area. I did see first hand long ago when they first kicked in on the 68 dash thing and they look excellent for a killer price. Also saw a 69 Trans-Am Firebird dash they did that was outstanding. Talked to them at Fall Carlisle about the 69 dash pad but nothing to report yet....

To save on shipping for us north eastern residents: Travel to a Carlisle car event (Spring, Corvette, Fall), enjoy the event and drop your items off to Al Knoch Interiors. Then travel back to the next event, enjoy the show, and pick up your parts. Bingo, no shipping.... I gave them my front buckets, rear seat, and door panels. Extremely happy with the results!

Re: Just mailed my dash pad off to Al Knoch

After reading these posts, I got curious too and here is a picture of mine. (also needing to be redone). Would this date stamp be read as Jan. 2nd, 1968? If so, the dash would have been built at least two and a half months before the car. My build date is third week of March.

I am curious how far other peoples dash date stamps preceed the build date of the car.

Re: Just mailed my dash pad off to Al Knoch

cool, will look at my later 68 ragtop's dashpad tomorrow and get pics
thanks for the reminder about Al Knoch on the dash and pillar covers. Their interior in my 68 Vette is superb.

Re: Just mailed my dash pad off to Al Knoch

Just got a call that it will be done and shipped out tomorrow. $189 + shipping which was a bit more than they quoted me but it was also pretty bad. Hopefully have pictures early next week!

Re: Just mailed my dash pad off to Al Knoch

Definitely keep us posted, Jason. My original '69 dash pad is in really good shape other than it has the typical curl to the bottom of it. I'd much rather have Al redo mine over getting a repop.

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

Re: Just mailed my dash pad off to Al Knoch

I don't think that price is all that bad for what you have done to it.
I bet it'll be well worth it.

Is anyone doing 69 pads to a high level of satisfaction? 7 and 8 pads are made differently than 9's. Did not know Al Knoch perfected the 69 manufacturing process.
