SEMA 2015: Stewart Warner’s Classic Gauges For The Modern Rod

Stewart Warner Gauges 02Finding factory-quality parts and accessories for your early model classic can be a daunting task, but Stewart Warner is here to help. We talked to Robert Viscosi at the company’s SEMA booth, and he highlighted a few of their most popular products for us.

Robert told us that some of their newest releases for the 2015 year were their new clock, their ‘black and white’ and ‘deluxe’ series of gauges, their ‘motorminder’ vacuum gauge- which analyzes the engine for improving economy- and their new three-in-one gauges. He mentioned that these three-in-one gauges come as either a tachometer, oil pressure, and water temp trio, or a speedometer, voltmeter, and fuel level gauge combination. He also let us know that these gauges are available in two different styles and come as complete kits, including all senders, accessories, hardware, and instructions.

Next, Robert spotlighted Stewart Warner’s show car – an absolutely immaculate ’32 Ford. He told us that it had a 427-inch, single overhead cam, bored and stroked, naturally aspirated powerplant, and that it was pushing almost 700 horses at the crank. He stated that the owner has put upwards of sixty thousand dollars into the engine alone, and has done the majority of the engine and body work himself.

He continued to tell us that the custom equal-length headers, frame, engine installation, and bed were all done by a garage in Addison, Illinois called Hot Rod Chassis and Cycle. The car is a whopping piece of eye candy complete with a set of high quality Stewart Warner gauges.

As for the future, Robert told us that the company is working on getting into the performance market. He acknowledged that they are limited to just street rod applications now, but by the end of 2016 will have a full competition line ready for the taking.
