I emailed him, he's looking for around $2k which is probably fair given the rarity but I unfortunately can't justify it for my car at the moment.

You can get a brand-new one from Werk924 for about $1500, which is what I paid for mine. I can't say how well it fits yet though, as I haven't installed it yet.

Is the colour a good match to the rest of the brown elements?

What do you think this dash will be worth 5 years from now...........or 10 years from now?

Makes me think when I owned a 1974 Opel Manta, if only I purchased lots of OEM interior parts from the Buick Dealership as an investment, stored them away for 20 years...........better return than the stock market?

Classic 9 did my early dash for $800 or so and it looks better than new. Unfortunately I think they stopped serving the 944 community. Maybe if you asked politely...

Does that cost include shipping to the US?

My only reservation on the new Werk924 dash is that I don't know how well it will fit. Their dash is made differently from the original, and the side/lower mounting tabs seem somewhat crudely done. The openins for the gauge cluster, vents, switches and so on are done very accurately, however. Making a replica dash from scratch is a pretty big undertaking, but with equipment available today such as coordinate measuring machines and CNC machines to make the molds, very doable.
