2nd Gen Instrument Cluster UP-GRADE

Post by CandyVanCan on Thu Jan 22, 2015 9:57 pm

As I've had to remove the instrument cluster on my `67 Chevy Van (To rebuild my melted wiring harness) I discovered that the cluster is vary much like the one in my Nova. On comparing it to a `65 Nova SS cluster (the same from `63-`65) it became apparent that the Nova housing would interchange with minor modifications. My `SS cluster has oil Press, amp, Water temp. and fuel gauges, along with a clock in the center. A more rare option was a Tachometer in place of the clock. Because I wanted "full instrumentation", and the Factory Tachs are vary expensive I visited a parts store and found a moderately priced Tach that fits in the same hole in the housing as the clock. Now the `67 Chevy van is a "SS" model where the Cluster is concerned!!

CandyVan, that looks fresh from the factory! Hang on to that clock though. You may come up with another brilliant idea.
Uncle Ron, need a login to see your pics.
