1957 Chevy Car VHX Instruments

Utilizing the stock instrument housing, this simple upgrade takes advantage of the recognizable triple gauge pod found in the 1957 Chevy Car (bezels shown in pics are NOT included, but can be purchased separately in our store, details below).

Arguably the pinnacle of the 1950's design, the 1957 Chevy dash is a favorite among builders. VHX-57C triples the amount of information available without modification. Stock indicators can be retained, or connected to VHX control box for full integration. Fits original gauge housing (not included) and can be used with factory or reproduction trim rings (not included, sold separately).

*Bezel and housing shown in any pic are NOT included, shown for visual/presentation purposes.
System uses OEM or reproduction style bezel.

Fully lit needles, backlit faces, and highly visible LCD message centers are a few of the things that you can see which set the VHX Series apart from yesterday’s traditional approach to instrumentation. A few of the features which you don’t normally see are the micro-controlled precision stepper motors, solid state sensors for unparalleled accuracy, and user-customizable display feedback, all supported by an unrivaled limited lifetime warranty which has become the standard for Dakota Digital instrumentation systems . Completely engineered and manufactured at their facility in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the VHX Series has completely revolutionized the instrumentation industry!
