    Description

    New Tooling as of May 2016! The previous version had a heavier grain than original and had a built in defect / scratch on the driver side top. This new version is the best repro Cougar pad offered to date, satisfaction guaranteed.

    Reproduction dash pad in black for the 1967 and 1968 Mercury Cougar. This is the same Dashes Direct pad you see advertised elsewhere. Beware of the "other" brand of dash pad out there, it will not fit.

    First off I must say this is the best version of this much needed reproduction offered to date. That being said I want to offer the following observations. The first thing you will notice upon opening the package is the smell... Very strong, unnatural odor (some call it the "New Car Smell") that contrary to what some may say, will not disappear in a short time, it takes months...

    Once you go to install it you will notice it is much heavier than the original. This is because the original was foam filled with a vinyl covering and the reproduction is a solid core design. The good news is that because of this design, it should never crack! Before you begin the installation process you will want to clear the speaker perforations of blockage left behind during the manufacturing process. On the Classic Cougar Community Forum one member has documented how to do this from the back side with a sander; in fact, before you purchase this dash pad, it might be worthy your time to read the multiple treads on Classic Cougar Community Forum regarding theses pads.  Once you go to install the pad you may struggle a little with the trim along the windshield as the mounting flange of this pad is thicker than that of the original.

    Used grade "A" dash pads are almost impossible to find these days, they just were not designed to be exposed to the sun and heat for 50 years! This is a good alternative made by Dashes Direct.

    Replaces Ford Part #: C7WY-6504290-BK.

    Fitment is accurate, I didn't need to fight with it to get it to line up. You may want to take a drill to the speaker holes if you wish to use your speaker, and order the clips that the dash panel screws thread into or use your old ones. Leave your windows open and let the dash air out after you install it, or it will leave a film of scum on the inside of your windows. Other than that it's a great dash pad and easy to install.

    What an improvement. Why didn’t I do this sooner. If your tired of looking at your warped dash then I highly recommend this product. Installation was easy but you will have to cut for vin tag if you have a 68. Other cuts will be for the window trim screws. I used an xacto knife and material cuts easy.

    • better than my old original dash
    Cons:
    • very thick. Hard to install ws trim.
    This pad looks good. Speaker holes are non-existent. More for looks than function. It was very difficult to get the windshield trim to mount. Car looks better with this new pad installed, but i dont know how long it will last due to the AZ heat.

    All the thoughts on the prior reviews pretty spot on and thankful for the comments as well as Dons and other how-to videos i reviewed on YouTube prior to the removal and install. Can't stress enough the extra long thin phillips head screw driver, magnetic, for removal and reinstall of the windshield side edge screws. The material was much easier to cut and trim than i expected, which was necessary for the cutouts where the screws go on the windshield side as well as to trim where the environmental control panel mounts as the new dash pad material is thicker than the OEM, so necessary to trim for those lower panels on the drivers and passenger side. The threads mounted in the dashpad are a different thread than OEM so you cannot use the OEM nuts that you remove from the dashpad, but it does come with washers and nuts to fit the new threads, so you need to use those, don't think you can re-use the OEM nuts and set the others aside. Other than some some trimming and fitting, fit and finish was great, very pleased.

    Just a few weeks ago I installed this dash pad on my '67 XR-7. It was an easy install and it looks amazing. Only issue I had was screwing in the windshield trim. I still haven't been able to install the windshield trim.
