Picked this up the other day. Looking for 8” brackets.
Here's a wild one....a supercharger gauge in a chrome cup.
Keep checking Ebay. I see them on there all the time
I collect it when the price is reasonable. Here is my small stash. Love old Eelco stuff
This is my EELCO treasure find; the dash that Ed Roth used in Mysterion. I stumbled on it on an Ebay search and was thrilled. I had no idea what he had used and I snapped it up for my Mysterion clone.
My Ebay find
Good stuff Jeff your Book was tremendous
Thanx. Sounds like you are the guy I wrote it for!!
Is this an Eelco?
No it is not. I've looked at those on Ebay and it is off name brand. Sorry to disappoint you.
Okay, thanks . I beg to differ on it being an “off brand and I have yet to see one of these for sale eBay. It has to be somewhat a high quality brand as the area filled with a black glass is machined with the flags raised. Solid and heavy stainless . I don’t think an off brand would have that much detail work.I guess I will have to keep searching ....
Just to clarify for anybody seeing this thread the black is glass and the flags are machined as is all areas that are filled with the glass. Not a decal . Hoping someone on here has a advertisement .
I have been giving this some deep thought , and there is probably no way it is an Eelco or any assembly line production brand because the cost in time of machining and detail and material your not going to sell this anywhere near the cost that an Hurst or Eelco could be sold to the public.
@curbspeed. The ones you are looking at on eBay isn’t this one by a long , long , long shot. But I do agree those on eBay are some off brand looking ones. Maybe mine is a one of custom piece or off a higher end car . I don’t know , but I figured this was a good place to start.
Any chance you’d part with it?
Amco brand is what you have. I have looked at them numerous time in the past on Ebay. I have seen that same one you have in fact. I'm almost positive it is Amco. In fact, there is one exactly like yours on there now. Here is the link if you doubt me.https://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-AMCO-V...551587&hash=item594a201f3b:g:ZrkAAOSwrldcv3FY
Probably a million of these floating around but I thought I would share anyway. I got this in the '60's sometime to use on my flatty with 3 - 97's. Decided it had too many "holes". Just tossed it in the "collection".
I still have some eelco decals I got from your dad
