finally got ac working, but mechanic broke dash bezel by map light while removing it. Anyone have a decent one for sale?

 

1973 convertibles all had the deluxe interior with wood grain center panel

Hi Hemikiller, I thought that all (1973)  convertibles had the black center panel and not the woodgrain. I have the instrument package with the center instruments in my car and it is black with Chrome and no woodgrain. Maybe it was changed by the previous owner , so if you have more info ,that would be great!

If you end up getting one of the ACP brand repop ones they are are decent.  It is one of the dash parts I got that required no work to make it fit.  I hate working on the dash because it is an expensive, brittle, fragile puzzle from hell.

You guys are right, the woodgrain center panel was only standard on the Grande', or with the M1 Sports Interior option. Thinking back now, both of my 73 convertibles had the black center panel. Doh - I stand corrected!  ;)

Hi, that's my ad. I have not been active in trying to sell all the stuff I have, so I believe I still have all of those in the box. I can check for you tomorrow, if you like.

My verts have the woodgrain. I think part of the convenience group along with vert package. 71 was different got the cheap stuff. Go check the Ford Facts Book Ray scanned in here. I have 5 verts and 4 have the wood grain and chrome rings.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

The repop piece I picked up for mine (from OMS) fits perfectly, even though mine was a non-A/C originally.  But the woodgrain veneer was already trying to come off (cheap adhesive in the production process).  No worries though, as I was planning on removing it anyway (I replaced it with 3M DiNoc black carbon fiber vinyl).  The OE A/C vent, 3-gauge pack, and map light all fit perfectly as well, along with the chrome trim plating being of good quality and all of the fastener points lined up perfectly.
