I don’t need to tell you how nice Classic Instruments products are, because everyone that has ever seen them knows they are a premier-level product, but man these gauges look awesome. If you are looking for something that fits like stock but looks like a million bucks, then this is your jam.
Here’s the announcement from Classic Instruments.
Classic Instruments Releases 1973–’79 Ford Truck Package
Boyne City, MI, August 4th, 2022 — Classic Instruments is pleased to announce the release of an all-new Ford direct-fit truck package, the 1973-’79 Ford Truck package. It is debuting at the NSRA Street Rod Nationals in Lousiville, KY in the new product competition. The package will be available in black and white and also fits 1978-’79 Ford Broncos and 1975-’91 Ford Econoline Vans.
This all-electric cluster features a speedometer, fuel, oil, temperature, and volt gauges. It has green turn signal indicators, a blue high beam indicator, and two red warning lights. Classic Instruments’ Hybrid LED Lighting offers the feel of the original perimeter lighting and the visual benefits of back-lighting: even illumination and clear nighttime readability. The cluster also has a built-in dimmer and separate power (12V) and ground leads in the wire harness for the warning lights. The cluster is wired with a single snap-in wire harness on the back of the cluster. Mounting hardware is included to install with the original bezel and lens and setup is a breeze with push-button speedometer calibration. The fuel gauge is programmable for any ohm range with a selector switch on the back of the cluster, meaning the fuel gauge will work with the stock sending unit, any other factory sending units, or any Classic Instruments fuel sending unit. All other necessary sending units are included with a Classic Instruments Ford sending unit kit, part no. SNFDNF, no fuel sending unit. Save space with Classic Instruments’ Zeus Speedometer Technology built-in, meaning the cluster requires no external control boxes and works directly with ECM or VSS signals and it has a built-in ECM signal filter switch.
This new cluster can be purchased from Classic Instruments direct or through any one of its authorized dealers.
