Does anyone make gauges that can replace the stock Water Temp and Oil and Amp Gauges in the Dash of my '66...

I don't mean the entire dash set-up for $495... Just Gauges...

With the new engine it would be nice to have actual readings instead of High or Low...

I would prefer replacing them instead of adding a multiple set under the dash...

Hey Big D,
Scoop is correct, Auto Meter will work perfectly.
There's a guy in our club who has fit white faced AUTO METER gauges in place of all the gauges in the dash (including tach and speedo) in two of his vintage mustangs and they not only fit perfectly but look awesome!!

Duane & SCOOP

Thanks for the info... I thought I read a thread in the past on retrofitting gauges... Would you check to see if they are the 2 1/8 Auto Meters...

Thanks...

Duane, Why aren't you in Vancouver...

They do look great,I'd like a set up like that too.Only with black face gauges to go with the ones I already have.The Electronic speedo are cool to.My father inlaw has one,real easy to adjust and install.
