Classic Thunder Road has announced a new series of instrument panels for '57 Chevys.
Available in three finishes; matte black, brushed aluminum, or carbon fiber, Classic Thunder Road's new panels are manufactured from ABS composite. Offered with or without gauges and wiring harness, the main dash panel is constructed as a two-piece assembly that forms a shroud around the steering column. This panel accepts a speedometer and tachometer and water temperature and oil pressure gauges. In addition a small two-gauge cluster is included which is mounted on the dash to the right of the main cluster. Styled in the fashion of the 1957 Chevrolet front fenders this two-gauge pod houses a fuel gauge and a volt meter.
Classic Thunder Road offers the panels with Autometer gauges or their own High Velocity or Concours gauges. The Concours range is a low-cost line while the High Velocity is a programmable series that offers several interesting features including peak recall on the tach. The chief advantage of these new gauges is cost. Both high quality lines they are priced at $649 to $949 when included with the 3-piece instrument panels and wiring harness. With Autometer gauges the panels cost $799 to $1,049. When supplied separately the panels cost $259.
