We dig Mopar compacts. Dusters, Darts, Demons and ’67 to ’69 Barracudas too. The OEM painted-on chrome trim wore off pretty easy back in the day and nothing looks shabbier than a worn-out dash in a classic car. The good news is, you can restore your Mopar compact dash to as-new, and upgrade to modern instruments in the process.
According to Classic Instruments, ” We are pleased to announce our partnership with Classic Dash to offer customers kits containing Classic Dash inserts and Classic Instruments six-gauge sets. We’re releasing two such kits for Mopar applications, one for 1967-69 Plymouth Barracudas and one for 1970-76 Dusters/Darts; including 70-76 A-body models – excluding the Swinger model.
“The kits combine a standard black dash insert and a 6-gauge set of Classic Instruments; available in seven different design series with either full-sweep or short-sweep small gauges. Additionally, the gauge set will come standard with Classic Instruments’ Halo trademark high-beam and turn-signal indicators integrated into the speedometer. This kit also includes all necessary sending units
“As with all Classic Instruments products, customers can choose to upgrade bezels, lenses, and pointers for a unique style and the dash insert may be ordered with one of two alternate finishes of Brushed Aluminum or Carbon Fiber. All speedometers are ZST equipped to allow for easy calibration and the ability to read pulse generators, vehicle speed sensors, or ECM signals. These new kits are available direct or through any one of Classic Instruments dealers.”
