    I have searched everywhere and cannot find these new. There are plenty of the ones that are ribbed or pebbled texture, but mine are glossy and smooth.

    Unless someone shows me the light, I am going to take a shot and making them myself.

    Make a pair for me while you're at it! Someone was re-popping the GTX dash woodgrain for
    a while, but not sure about now. If you do find them, please post it here! Thanks!

      The backs are ribbed and there are no part numbers.

      called a friend with a 68 GTX, he got it restored a few years back, 68 lower dash trim pieces with smooth finish one year only, no reproductions being made at least when he did his car. He said it took the shop over 1 year to find NOS pieces (a lot of $$$), there like hen's teeth he said, Good luck!!!

      Thanks, my set are not horrible and even though one of the pieces is broken, it's there. I am going to use some engineering and see what I can do. The pisser is that they make the sets for Dodge cars of the same year, but the shape (chrome edges) are not the same and of course neither is the black surface area. I have a friend who does injection plastic. If I can make a set of molds I might be able to get a few sets made.
