1970 chevelle ss dash pics. Anyone?

I am looking for ideas on installing aftermarket gagues in my 1970 chevelle ss round gague dash. I am trying to do this without spending $250 for the Classic Dash insert. Right now I have a 5" Sportcomp tach and a 2 5/8" fuel level gague. Just wondering my options. Thanks

If it is a vintage SS dash, in good condition, I wouldn't cut it up.
I once had a 1970 GS Stage 1, it didn't come with a factory tach, the hole for the clock was a perfect friction fit for a aftermarket tach. The clock guts were removed from behind and easily replaceable without harming the dash.

You may find that your vintage SS dash is worth enough to a resto nut that selling it will pay for much of the cost of the Covan unit, and you won't be working with old, brittle plastic to boot. Just a thought.

There were 2 SS dashes in 70...One with factory tach, and 4 gauges and one with a large gas gauge where the tach would be and idiot lights......Sounds like you have this one....I bet they are more rare than the ones with all the gauges, but not as desirable......

Accually my car had no dash. I picked this one up from a 70 Monte. It is broken, which I repaired with epoxy plastic weld. It held great. As for the value, I don't think that it would be worth much. It is still in decent condition, however being busted and repaired???? It would be a perfect dash to slip some Autometers or something in.
