    This what im going to use in my coupe. A very early Dodge dash that I got off of evilbay. I was going to use the gas tank as a dash but it is rotted so it wasnt worth the time to fix it so this dash came along. Give me your input but not to high jack this thread.

    Haven't done mine yet,but it will be similar-kind of a '32 shape out of curly maple with black Faria gauges-not sure about the insert yet.

    I'm using this exact dash in my 30 coupe! My steering wheel is frighteningly similar to yours as well. Great minds think alike!

    Here's my '31 Vicky dash. The gauge panel is a reproduction accessory item called Aristocrat. It screws right over the stock cluster. I had it chromed and have an engine turned insert.

    Of course, I've enlarged the holes to accept the modern Stewart Warner gauges with the vintage Stewart Warner Speedo. The original fuel level site is top center. From left to right, ammeter, oil pressure, stock speedo, water temp, clock.

    I've spent a lot of miles staring at that cluster.

  23. Cant recall where I got them... they are Auto Meter Street Rod Arctic White Gauge Kit.
