    VW 110 mph? :) they dont look like VW stuff in the pictures of VW stuff....

    you can use google images to see what things look like, you know. If you have some idea of what they might be from.

    Are there any markings on the outer surface of the gauges, that we still can't see?

    Can’t be a Chevrolet product , as it shows over 110 on the speed and almost 60,000 on the odometer.

    yup, chevys are usually 150, and a few hundred k miles, if they're that old.

    The blue BEAM lens is a clue that it's not real old, eh?

    Oil gauge looks like an auto parts store '70s unit.

    Regarding the speedo only, I agree......Maybe a VW corporate item.....like the Porsche 914/4 which was more VW than not.....only the 914/6 was Porsche powered. In any case, it has a European ‘look’ to me. That said, surprised to not see a manufacturer’s name/trademark on the case.

    I've seen the speedo listed as a Mk 2 Cortina 1600 (it may have been used on other low end late 60s Fords). The oil gauge is an aftermarket brand I don't recognize.

  11. I have an oil gauge like that but don't remember where I got it. I think its 1970s. I know it must be cheap or I wouldn't have it.....

    Buddy had a Sunbeam Alpine, early 70's. Speedo's very similar, but no cigar according to a quick search.:confused:
