This dash is not from a 280se is it?

The glove box part doesn't look big enough to me? Or am I missing something?

You are missing something. The glovebox extends the full height of the wood. The "cut out" you see is where the ashtray goes. The piece on the right has just been lined up with the rest, but it should be the width of the glovebox away. The glovebox piece is just plain missing.

Thats what I thought. Is the glove box part a framed section or does the dash just stop and start at the glove box door? Other than that it looks like a nice burl.

The glove box is just a totally separate piece. I believe there is a thin strip that is supposed to be below it, but most of it is hidden from sight.
