I have the only known 68/9 SSS in Canada, and I believe I’ve only seen 2 in the US in cars. There is likely more, but I’ve only seen one 69 SSS car (a Coupe) which still has its original dash and it resides in Seattle - under heavy guard!

This is a really rare piece to find, there were very few 1968/9 model SSS sedans or coupes produced in Japan and I don’t know how many of those were exported anywhere in the world. Most that were exported were immediately raced in various markets.

Just to give an idea, I purchased my dash when traveling in Australia in the mid 90’s - a time when 510 parts (both domestic and import) were plentiful - just like they were here in North America at the time. And even then, this 69 SSS dash was a bit of a holy grail.

I do hope you find what you need.
