Mine is a 63' so the dash is a bit different. I do have the factory tach. It is just a mater of changing the color from Black/White to Silver/Black.

I installed Dakota's Digital Gauges in a 56 Chevy, and didn't like it when in the sun. It was very hard to read. They looked cool though.

Re: Any Dash Ideas

Anyone know where I can get that machine turned looking stuff uncut? I'd like it for my dash, but mine's WAY different than stock gauge layout...

Call Haneline. I bet they will make a special one for you. At least the old owner would. Give them a try.
