Gauges for later cars?

Recommended Posts

Anyone seen the later dash kitted with aftermarket gauges that look right for the car? Autometer is a bit flash for my tastes, but maybe something like a Stewart-Warner vintage style?

Speedhut are all custom made. Still not quite the same in my opinion but a very nice gauge either way.

Interesting idea. Thanks! 

 

I like that they have combo gauges too. Perfect for replacing the combo gauge on the right side...   :thumbup:

Speedhut is the same recommendation I would make, but beyond that VDO makes some gauges that look very similar to old Datsun gauges. Oddly, I think they are from their marine line, but I could be wrong.

 

I just did a quick search for ”Datsun speedhut" on google images and it showed some decent looking options people have chosen. Also showed some horrid ones, but hey, that happens

Most roadster owners seem to go with Classic Instrument gauges, but mostly in the flat dash cars. Not sure if they make something you would like and fit in a high screen dash but couldn't hurt to check.

They have a few things I like, but pricing compared to Speedhut would probably keep them out of contention.

I'll check those out. Thanks.   :thumbup:

"Classy" is definitely the order of the day here.   B)

 

Another option is http://www.dolphingauges.com/

 

They make multi gauges too.

 

Thanks. I'll check that out.   :thumbup:

Seems like autometer has a lot more options if you haven't looked at them in a while.  They have a few different combo gauges too.  Might still be too flashy & pricey for what you're looking for, though.

I have not, apparently.   ^_^

I did not know that. Very cool.   :thumbup:

Honestly, the other options listed above are just as pricey.   :rofl:

 

Do you know any model names for the gauges you posted? Not seeing them on Summit...

I think those are the three I posted. 

 

Not bad. I think I could do the 5" combo on the right, the 5" speedo on the left, and the 3 3/8" tach in the center.   :thumbup:

 

 

 

 

 They have others but I figured you'd be looking for black.

 

No doubt.   B)
