1961 - 1962 Chevy Impala VHX Instruments
from Dakota DigitalVHX-61C-IMP
The new VHX Systems fit directly into the stock dash of a 1961-62 Chevy Impala without modification. The upper (speedometer/voltmeter/fuel level/message centers) display utilizes the stock trim ring (not included), whereas the lower displays (tachometer/oil pressure/water temp) include machined aluminum/chromed new instrument housings.
Playing off the stock sweep-style speedometer, VHX-61C-IMP offers six readouts in a direct bolt-in package for all 1961-62 Chevy Full size cars. Original chrome trim for the speedometer as well as instrument housing are reused (not included), while machined aluminum, chrome plated gauge housings are included for the temp, tach, and oil gauges.
