I have been checking out the various gauge options for the 67-72 Chevy's.

I have only seen the gauge bezel with Amps, Eng Temp, and Eng oil pressure at the bottom of the bezel. What other gauge might have been an option for the 4th hole?

I've considered a vacuum gauge, a small tach/engine hour meter or maybe a clock? Thoughts?

I have also noticed that the Light and wiper switches are in different areas. I know that a mechanical choke is/was an option, but what other switch might be in the dash bezel (on the example the lower right hole)

At least two variations of this dash. 1967 and ??? dashes had a manual choke on the upper right. With my 67 dash with choke, there is no lower right hole. Tach was optional as was vacuum gauge. I think the vacuum gauge is still available from some providers.

What you have pictured appears to be a 67-68 dash that has been given an extra lower right hole.
