    Are there any markings? Brand name, Manufacturing Co name? Some companies were exclusive to certain makes.

    Looks to me like it would have come from a mid-30's Mopar or orphan make. The smaller needles look like they may be Stewart Warner. Post a pic of the back, and tell us any numbers stamped (in paint) on it.

    It is a very very cool panel of unknown origin. If you hate it I'll be happy to take it.

    I'm going to make this work if it kills me. I think it's cool looking and just about the right size. The speedo white numbers ring looks like the same stuff piano keys are made from.

    I don't know what it came out of, but it looks to have been made by SW in 1935.
