Need to find an Oddball Tach

Hey guys, I dont know why I havent posted this q ever before. But there is a square tach I saw on another chevelle at a car lot one time, and it had a rectangular tach under the cowl, with a sweep gauge, couldnt make out the brand, but I've searched ebay, and all over the web for it, and asked a bunch of guys locally about it, with no resolve. This makes for a great hidden tach.

Here is a pic of it, if any of you guys know where I could get somthing like this, that would be awesom.

Thanks guys.

Thats called a "Dixco Hood Tachometer".

That's funny, I've never heard of another Dixco tach before. I have a chrome round sweep tach from Dixco, looks early 70's. Came in my 75 shorty chevy boogie van.

Okay, i did a lil search and found a few i think that are like that type but not the demensions you need... 1st is a sweeping square tach...but its square tho errrrr...i think that one in the pic is more of a rectangle, right?

Or mabey one of these half sweep with only the needle part viewable in the cowl.

http://www.carlinidesign.com/flash_c...tal_Gauges.php Nice, but i think they're for a motorcycle tho..

Your right these are a tough tach to track. mabey that one was stock from another car?

-edit: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...spagename=WD1V another one digital...

and another hood tach http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...sPageName=WD6V
