cockpit are a series of gauges by VDO, they were the most popular.  It looks like these have been constantly updated over the years.  Autohaus used to sell them.

What you mean you can still buy the "Jetcockpit Series" like the one below- also if the "facias" are different then they are not the same guages - surely  Huh Huh Huh

i already did some studies on the topic.

more correct gauges in my opinion would be: smiths replica or stewart warner deluxe on a plexiglas dash, or black vdo on a steel welded dash or padded by black vynil

there are some rather foul looking gauges around from the 70's! Those green logod gauges are disgusting but that makes them kind of cool. You would have to mount them in a black vinyl dash to get away with it them though  Smiley Still with stock style VDO, or EMPI or Speedwell for the classical look I think.

I had a feeling there might be some STRONG opinions about these AWSOME guages - I LOVE THEM  Wink Smiley

Also Bullit you are "right" Smiths or SW's might be more "correct" but I want to be alittle different  Wink Smiley

Also I am pretty sure it will be a padded vynil dash - still undecided though Smiley
