55 Chevy Custom Instrument Panel

I'm looking for a source for this custom instrument cluster for a 55 Chevy BelAir. It has a full sweep tach on left and a full sweep speedo on right with oil, water, amp and fuel in middle. I can email a pictureif someone thinks they might be able to identify it. Saw it in a car at Classic Chevy show this weekend in Orlando, FL.

My picture file was 600KB, guess it's too large.
I can email direct to you if you give me your address.

You need to re-size the picture to upload it. Any good picture editing program can do that for you.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.

More than likely, you're going to have luck contacting


Classic Instruments does some very nice gauge work. They have standard sets and also do custom sets. I have a 32 Ford roadster in the shop right now (Dearborn Classics body with retracting softtop). The owner is having a 5-gauge set custom made by CI. Should be done in the next week or so. He's handling cutting the dash opening for those.

Another tack to follow is with Dakota Digital gauges. I just did a custom interior in a 55 Chevy two-door post sedan. The owner installed a digital setup in his, including a digital clock over on the passenger side in the center of the big V. It looks great. The faces are blue when it fires up, and really blends nicely with the blue cloth/white vinyl interior and blue/white exterior. The only horrid thing is his radio. It has GREEN face. Yuck.
