    All the Stewart Warner Stage III gauges and tach my dad had in his 74 Ford F250 Hi Boy..Think these will be used in my,just because they have significance to me.. Found all these goodies in a box up over mom's barn that were under a GS fender... 20190210_112020.jpg

    20190210_112902.jpg These need the brackets refabbed on them and welded. Looking for a set of front brackets or may have my buddy Bruce copy my other set of brackets..

    Hey Pat,

    Is that "Motor Minder" in the second picture just a vacuum gauge?
    I remember a buddy who had a 76 Monte Carlo with a factory economy gauge in it.
    It was as big as the speedometer and it stayed in the "green" area until you poured on the coals. That gauge of yours reminded me of it.

    Pretty Cool!

    ;)

    Yes,that's what the one is..I remember dad telling me that to get best mileage,you needed to keep it in the green good section..He drove so slow I don't think it ever seen red,unless the truck wasn't running...lol Somewhere,there is a clock and a temp gauge to match these. If you look close enough,you can see the triple gauge clusters that the gauges were originally installed in. The Tach was installed in my 73 GS until I decided to part ways with it. It's actually pretty cool and works.

    One of my buddies have one of these he's donating.I think the coolness factor alone will be enough to install it.. s-l1600.jpg

    Pat,

    Thanks for sharing. I am planning on building a custom dash cluster with SW gauges to add a little day 2 flare to my pro touring build.

    Louie, I have a complete cluster that I built for my back half car that has all Autometer gauges in it Speedo,oil pressure,etc. Have some good coin in it but It's something different. I am still on the hunt for the elusive rear Super Trick wheels and a rear cover..

    I saw a rear cover at Carlisle years ago.. it was cheap but I wasn’t even thinking about doing a build like this.

    If you have some pics, I would love to see the cluster. I just bought a “blank” setup from Ethan. I probably won’t attack the project until I do the interior next winter.

    Pat, I'm sure you've mentioned it before but what size Super Tricks are you looking for? I'll keep my eyes open in my daily searches.
