Does anyone know if there is a piller pod made for the 65 mustangs? I'd like to get one that holds 3 gauges. Thanks in advance.

Actaully thet don't make them. But you can get a later pod and modify it. I started looking into it but other projects got in the way. I also read in Mustang Monthly, I think, where someone modded the later pod to fit in a 66.

Don't you think it would be annoying having gauges there? Especially at night?

I think id like the gauges up there! I really hate having them right under my radio. I have been in cars with them on the piller and it did not bother me. But Also I only have 3,400miles on my Mustang in 2 years. So if it did bother me it would not be that often haha

I don't mean to put them down. I just imagine trying to focus on the dark road ahead with the lit gauges to my left. Maybe they wouldn't be as bad as I think.

I see a lot of cars at shows with the pillar pods in them....I'm gonna have to ask the owners if they a distracting or not. I kinda like the look myself....heck, I've even thought about them for my car but gave up the thought because there were none produced for 65's !!!

Hey Guys,

The pillar pods are used by a lot of ricers here in the bay area. The thought is pretty cool but in my opinion, I think it can be eye candy to a lot of thieves.

I've always liked the "sleeper" look on a car. Something that looks completely stock (no stickers, no excessive lighting, nothing the person in the other car can see).

However, I do personally like the modified instrument panel/bezel that JME makes. (no, i'm not a representative) It's pretty steep in price but it would carry that classic look with modern day guages.

Again, this is just my opinion...

Regards,

Erik
