26 Ford Sedan Delivery

I recently acquired a fiberglass Model T sedan delivery. Since I don't know who the original builder of this vehicle was. I can't locate the manufacturer of the body. Searching the internet has only yielded Model A and newer bodies. I am looking for a dash board as I would like to change the gauge layout. I really like the car overall just want to make small changes and improvements here and there.
Specs: Buick V6/350 turbo, 4" drop tube axle. 9" Ford, 4 wheel disc brakes.
So if anyone knows who produced this body or a source for a new dash, I would greatly appreciate it.

Try searching images: using the term 26 Ford Sedan Delivery dash board

I looked a bit and saw some pictures, The dash looks like it has flat surfaces. Allowing any configuration for the instruments and switches, you might imagine.

Plenty of room to work, with if unable to fab a panel or insert, there are many

Some shots of one I did a while back

Yes, the dash is flat similar to a 32 Ford dash. I was looking to replace it with a new dash from the manufacturer instead of adding a panel over the top of the original one. This is what I may have to do.
Thanks to everyone for their help and suggests.

From the title I think the car was built about 8 yrs ago, but who knows when the body was purchased.

Superior Glass Works here in Molalla Oregon had a fire in the 'Glass Bay after hours. All of their molds and parts are gone. My one piece front end form my '37 Chevy Coupe was in the middle of the floor and still in the mold. It survived with a little crispy on the Cowl.

I have a good friend that has his work shop in his back yard. He has many metal parts late 20's & 30's primarily. I know he has a T shell and some other parts up on the top off his storage rack. I can call tonight and ask if he has a metal dash.

Ron only had one dash and it's spoken for.

Have you tried Speedway, Jegs etc. ?

If the dash is fiberglass have you thought about filling the existing holes and redrilling?
