    Awhile back I considered replacing all my dash gauges and most sets I saw from manufactures were around $1k or more for 6 gauges and sending units. Then I came across a company that had a beautiful set, included everything, for about $500. Problem is, I can't remember who made them and I haven't been able to find it on google. I recall the brand had been around for quite some time, perhaps one of the oldest manufactures of aftermarket gauges. Was hoping some folks could ramble off a few names I can try searching for and maybe I'll find them again.

    Go to the Summit website and search for gauges. On the left side filters will be a list of brands longer than your arm. If it isn't in there, I don't know what to tell you.

      FWIW, I run AutoMeter Sport Comps in our race car, work great. Summit has the 07-0001 kit for about $570.

      I went with Intelltronix. American made and they do stand by their warranty. Including a self inflicted screw up by me.

        Speedhut! Great gauges, I have a set in my car. I like that they can be customized to your own liking.

          x3 on Speedhut gauges!
          They did an outstanding job on the gauges for my (hopefully) soon-to-be-on-the-road '69 Dart (sorry, dash isn't done yet so no pic).
          They're also made here in the USA and will do custom work.

          Take a look...Gauges - Speedhut

            Everyone does Autometer or Speedhut. I'm very happy with my local Detroit manufacturer New Vintage USA.

            New Vintage USA INC

            I was able to get custom gauges made and they work perfectly. Plus there local.

            Dakota Digital VHX range was my choice (old school needle type gauges with modern digital control)....several options & extra's not bad price and good warranty….I’m in Australia, a part arrived damaged, one call and it was replaced…happy customer!

            Hint,
            The Summit gauges are Intellitronixs gauges in disguise They are stamped "Made In USA" and they are only about $35.00 per gauge

                It is an old bezel I bought of it EBay for cheap and created my own radio delete and moved the Fish from the glove box. I used Lexan to hold the gauges and covered them in Carbon Fibre vinyl wrap so they would fit the original holes. I’m also doing a triple pod out of PVC that will hold my other 3!

                    Auto meter in my Duster.
                    I do have a set of Summits cheap analog gauges in my old work truck, they have held up well.
