  5. I really like what Ryan has done with his "new" truck dash. I'm going to do the same with my truck. Although he may be disappointed because I'm leaning towards newer gauges that have the vintage look. I have a bunch of old stuff, but I want to save them for something a little more interesting than my Unibody.

    This is my 40 dash; I had the vision in the 60s, did most of the sectioning in the late 70s and finished it in '14 DSCF1114 (800x600).jpg DSCF1115 (800x600).jpg

    SW gauges in a Knecht Mariner panel and WWII stuff. The battery cutoff switch under the F-6 Hellcat pilot seat is a B-25 Bomber fuel tank selector switch...pull the trigger on the P-51 Mustang control stick grip starts the car. Door locks are also P-51 tail wheel locks.

    Wingnutz - I believe this is a 1934 Olds dashboard. This photo was in Ryan's original post. I really like the look. This was prewar I believe.

    Still love the look of a 36 dash in an A coupe. I just picked this one up in real good shape off CL and hope to get started on it soon... ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1416722605.819336.jpg


    Never finished

    I have one too but I am thinking of going with S&W gauges instead of stock. Still trying to decide on a layout.

  25. Zephyr's had really cool Deco designs.

    I had a chance at a complete 1937 Zephyr coupe 9 years ago for $6k but I thought he was a wee bit high and he wouldn't budge from that price.

    Silly me when I saw a couple of them sell for close to 6 figures!

    I used a '50 Ford gauge. Tried to keep it simple.
