Old parts needed

I need some soft trim for my 1973 Mercury Meteor - the dash top pad is particularly critical. Any clues or leads would be appreciated.

A day or two ago I also posted my needs on a Mercury owners site. I got two replies from England (ostensibly) and also had this exchange:

Thanks for the mail. I am currently off town but my sectary will be of avail. The asking price is 180USD$$$. You are advice to confirm your mailing address to call it a deal.

Hello, Jones. How very convenient - I am within easy driving distance of your address, so perhaps you can let me know your price, place where I may inspect the goods, and your hours of business? - b/u

Does it surprise anyone to know that, among other things, there is no "Central Parkway" in Mississauga, and that the telephone numbers there are ten digits with an area code that is not 404?

Most scammers are at least a little more sophisticated in their approach - perhaps I can offer further samples soon.
