1970 El Camino SS Oil Pressure Gauge

Was wondering where the oil pressure gauge is on a 1970 El Camino SS with standard gauges? I know with idiot gauges the oil pressure is on the right upper side but I do not see where it is with standard gauges. Trying to do a conversion from idiot gauges to standard gauges.

I've attached a picture of a 70 camino ss dash and where is the oil pressure gauge or did it even exist then?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Found the answer!

An oil pressure gauge was not available on a 1970 SS El Camino Dash.
Only a warning light on the tachometer.

Interesting.

Here's the link where I found the info.

Oil Pressure

Doc here,

Interesting indeed...never knew that..

Is this for a restore or just want to add it for your own peace of mind?

If it's the latter, didn't later model Chevelles, Malibu's, and Monte's have a Duel Temp/oil gauge? I know a few years had them just can't remember which ones..you might want to go that route if it isn't a resto..

Doc
