I recommend Just Dashes.

They did an incredible job on my dash pad and upper door pads for my '68 Charger.

E body, Just Dashes or Fox in El Paso are your choices.

1970 Dart GT

The Dart interior is green. I'm not sure how close the reproduction dash pad colors are to the original outside of black or white. In addition to the fit.

I have been going through this question myself with a burnt orange Challenger dash pad. For me it was Ultimate Rides vs Just Dashes. I used a UR in another Challenger of mine with a black interior, and though it's not perfect, I'm satisfied with it. And it was considerably less expensive than Just Dashes.
AFAIK, UR doesn't do colors. You can get any color you want as long as it's black, and then dye it the proper color yourself.
I talked to Just Dashes and they said they used to charge a fixed additional charge for colors other than black, but now go through a process to match the color of the customers pad they are restoring, so the charge varies from $100-$175 or something like that for colors.
The color issue, along with the issues people have had over the years dealing with Fox, made my choice to fork out the extra $$$ and go with Just Dashes. I just sent the pad off to them a week or so back and haven't heard back from them yet with my tab, but I'm looking forward to seeing it when done.
On their website, they show a dark green Challenger pad they recently restored and it looks great!

I sent my 70 Swinger dash pad to Just Dashes. The price was the same as buying a repo dash pad at that time. I went with my original as I know it fits.

My brother also sent a dash pad for 68 Cutlass with AC to them and it came out mint. Those are large and complex like an e-body dash pad and they did a great job on it.

Shake,

Let me know who this turns out as I need to get a Burnt Orange Pad done also.

Also what color is the stitching on your pad?

Thanks

Stitching looks burnt orange to me from pictures I have of the original dash.
I sent it out to JD 2 weeks ago via FedEx ground. I haven't heard from them yet with the cost. I wonder how long it takes them to contact a customer after they receive the dash? If I don't hear from them by the end of the week, I guess I'll give them a shout.

I just requested a quote, I think they were out for the holidays, probably having to catch up now.

I called them in early December for instructions, and they told me then that they were closed the last 2 weeks of the year.
I delayed shipping my pad until the end of the year so it would arrive in Van Nuys after they got back.
I'm sure they have a bit of catching up to do when they got back to work last week.

My brother and I sent our pads together in the same box and from memory they were a little slow. I want to say it took them about a month to get them done. Pretty much like having bumpers rechromed or anything specialized that takes time to do it right. By the time you forget about them they show up.

I think they told me ~3 months! But they said they'd call after getting my pad to tell me their cost to do the work, and to get authorization/payment.

JD will charge ~$1250 to recover a 70 E-body dash in black. $40 to buy/apply the script, $80 to add 2 side speakers for a 3 speaker convert. Shipping will depend on where you live, example $135 to get it to PDX.

Send a check to avoid getting charged an extra 3% for CC.

3 months turnaround is what I was told. Sent mine in last Nov, getting it end of Jan.

Here is mine from just dashes. did an excellent job. took a while to hear from them and gave my go ahead, and then a few weeks to get the shipment back home. Could not be happier.
