Dakota Digital 1957 Ford Car VHX Instruments - VHX-57F


The new VHX Systems fit directly into the stock dash of a 1957 Ford Full-size Car without modification (does not fit Thunderbird). Included in this kit are new fully machined chrome trim for the upper arched gauge, as well as the rectangular odometer opening.

This 5-gauge system includes a machined HDPE instrument housing which attaches directly to the stock front dash bezel (front dash bezel is NOT included).  Additionally,  it includes a new machined aluminum/chromed bezel to trim the upper arched gauge opening, as well as the rectangular odometer window. 

*Cast Factory dash and Oil and Generator bezels and lens are NOT included.

Fully lit needles, backlit faces, and highly visible LCD message centers are a few of the things that you can see which set the VHX Series apart from yesterday’s traditional approach to instrumentation. A few of the features which you don’t normally see are the micro-controlled precision stepper motors, solid state sensors for unparalleled accuracy, and user-customizable display feedback, all supported by an unrivaled limited lifetime warranty which has become the standard for Dakota Digital instrumentation systems. Completely engineered and manufactured at their facility in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the VHX Series has completely revolutionized the instrumentation industry!

Calibration

Pushbutton - Dakota Digital instruments are programmed and operated by the push of a button. Simply mount the included pushbuttons supplied with your gauges in a convenient and easily accessible location. These buttons are used to calibrate your speedometer, set the cylinder count and the fuel level gauge. Once properly configured these same buttons are used to access the wealth of information located in the Digital Message Centers.
