There’s something awesome about installing parts and pieces on the interior of your car or truck. This is doubly true if the parts being installed make the interior better looking and more functional. Well, Classic Instruments has been making interiors of cool cars and trucks better looking and more functional since the day the company first opened its doors and that tradition holds true today.
In this video we are going to see a Classic Instruments dash cluster get installed into a 1971 Chevy Suburban that our pal Todd owns. This patina beauty is desert perfect and that means little to no rust, but an interior that has ben subjected to the searing heat of the desert for decades with ill-effect on plastic parts.
The beauty of the Classic Instruments cluster is that the thing comes totally pre-assembled and needs only to be plugged in to deliver all of the functionality that you want. There’s even a really nicely integrated digital portion to the unit that can be toggled through several functions and readouts. The details are all handled as well. Have a mechanical speedo style transmission and this uses a VSS style signal? There’s a bolt on adapter included that takes the mechanical cable drive signal and converts it to the electronic data the cluster wants.
This is a really awesome solution for anyone with a 67-72 GM truck looking to bring their dashboard back to life!
