Classical Dash

PostPost by: fattogatto » Wed Dec 04, 2019 6:40 pm

Is Classical Dash still in business? They have a nice website, and their phone is still being answered by a machine. I have sent emails and called, leaving messages regarding buying an S3 RHD dash, with no response.

Any help?

They were there about 12 months ago when I bought my dash but they did take a bit of effort to contact. The final product though was really good.

As far as I know Susan Millar and TTR buy from him, Susan has usually stock.
I bought a S1 LHD dashboard directly from him, it took him months to have it finished, once finished he asked for payment, I paid instantly, then it took more months to get it finally, only after Brian Buckland did call him a few times.

So my proposal would be, order from him, wait until it is finished and then collect it yourself and pay at collection.
1964 S1 (engine ready, awainting body repair)
1967 S3 DHC (now adjusted by Brian Buckland, totally calm idle)
1969 S4 FHC (finishing interior, changing wiring loom)

Thanks. I’ve also left messages at Paul Matty with no responses. Very curious. Dashboard in US is 3 times the (supposed) UK prices.

I have to pass on that Susan Miller is very proactive. She obviously watches these posts carefully. She sent me a personal email that she has the required dash in stock and needed my address to check shipping requirements. Very professional. Most impressed.
