Pretty sure a dashpad from a 70 ranchero will work in a 70-71 torino correct guys? If so I found a crack free one for 75 bucks in the local salvage yard. It's blue, I need black can you dye or paint them?
should work just fine. There are some specialty dyes out there for vinyl that are supposed to be pretty good. Most involve using a primer/prep coat. I have used the Duplicolor spray stuff that most auto parts stores sell with fair results. It scratches easily and can wear off with frequent rubbing. It would probably work fine on a dash pad, and it can be easily touched up.
