When '64-'66 truck owners get together and talk about rare factory options, several items are always up front in the conversation. Factory air-conditioning, big back windows, and triple bucket seats are always on the list, but one of the rarest factory options available on the '64-'66 Chevrolet trucks was the in-dash tachometer. Many people are misled into believing that the 5,000-rpm tachometer was only available in the C-40 and bigger trucks, but it could be ordered in the C/K-10 through 30 series as option RPO U16.
Thankfully, now any gauge-style '64-'66 Chevrolet instrument cluster can be converted to a tach dash with this new reproduction kit from Early Classic Enterprises. Installation is a basic bolt-in affair and requires only basic tools and skills to accomplish. In less time than it takes to watch a few Saturday morning cartoons, you can upgrade your '64-'66 Chevy truck dash with one of the coolest options available. Follow along as we show you how.
The original dash in our donor truck is in reasonably good shape, and all of the instruments are in working order. Because the lens is scratched and dull, a new one will be installed at the same time, along with a new outer bezel.
