It's hard to tell from blurry pic, but it looks like the dash pad has cracks in it.  But that lower dash.  Those things can be hard to come by in nice, uncracked, uncut condition.  Assuming the rest of it, on the other side of the steering wheel is as nice as what we can see.  I know someone, right now, that could really use a nice blue lower dash like that.  Unfortunately, he's in Florida, and shipping would most likely be a deal breaker.  I've never removed one.  I'm assuming it's a decent amount of work.  But, I'd think someone could use that.
 
EDIT:  Never mind.  Just went back to your previous post, and see that it's busted up around the steering column.

Just posting this for discussion purposes. It is in a U Pull It. It is not my car.   Any part would have to be pre paid. Am not trying to deceive anyone.   This interior is far better than just about anything else of it's vintage in this part of the country, unless of course it was hermatically sealed.   Problem with the U pull its are that usually the first "visitors" to a newly set out vehicle destroy good parts - (steering columns are the worst), to get some tiny doodad or trinket. There are a lot of backyard hackers here as well.

I like the big muddy boot print right on the t-top in that first T-bird.

I found a third wagon at that private yard I posted pics of a while ago. Code 3K blue outside, blue inside. I'll have to inspect the lower dash.

I've got a friend in FL looking for a blue lower dash. Someone butchered his radio area for a cd player. It's Austin from Facebook. He doesn't get on the forum. But I doubt he'll be able to buy a complete car, to part it out.

So both gnrlee and Austin need blue lower dashes? I can recall two Rancheros there with blue interiors also, but I'll have to check for cracks and radio area butchery.

Get it!  You might be able to get it for CHEAP.  My winning bid was $250 for the 79 Cougar that I got at one of those auctions.  After fees, etc, driveout was $500.
 
I could use A LOT of the interior parts in it.  I see some rust around the back window, so I'm wondering if it's restorable, or a parts car.

Yeah, that T-top car looks fairly mediocre as far as options (with exception of the T-tops).  I don't see power windows, cruise, sport cluster, etc.  You could add T-tops to just about any 78-79 T-bird, regardless of options.
