A young friend purchased a 1948 Chevy Fleetline, and someone had already replaced the instrument cluster with an inexpensive, modern one. He's new to restoration (he's 25yo), and I was hoping that someone could point me/him in the right direction.

He was hoping to purchase a working/functioning 4-gauge set (fortunately the speedometer was still factory). I told him I'd ask here because everyone has been extremely helpful throughout the restoration of my truck.

Thank you!


You can't buy happiness but you can buy a truck...and that's pretty much the same thing.

I know that replacement individual gauges are available. I'm sure that someone here could round up an original cluster housing. New glass and rims are also available from vendors like Jim Carter, and they may also have an original cluster laying around. Your friend should give them a call.

Have your friend join VCCA for good information on their car.
