Styled after WWII military instruments, "1940" graphics are from blueprints the military issued in 1940 for manufacturers to use during the war. These waterproof gauges look right at home in any 1940s to 1960s vehicle. Why bother with salvage gauges that might need repair when you can buy new? Gauges have domed lenses and stainless bezels for a great finishing touch. Made in USA.
