  • electronic gauge conversion

    I contacted a company, Classic Instruments, that will take existing gauges, rebuild them as electronic utilizing the same face, etc for re-installation in the dash. Bad part is, a phone qoute was about $300 each for a gas gauge and the temp gauge.
    Anyone know of another source that might provide a price?
    Thanks

    Hemmings Motor News will have a large listing for Speedometer & gauge restoration/conversion. I doubt they'll be that cheap either. When a automotive service department charges $70-$100 an hour...

                Mike D. can I ask a stupid question? Since electric and mechanical gauges have served us well for 50 years, there can't be a problem with them, so why ELECTRONIC? [:0]

                If all you want to do is convert your '53 to 12 volt, I am sure there are many electric options!

                            This begs the question. Does someone rebuild the small S/W gauges on the hawks? They seem to be getting kinda rare.
