*NEW PRODUCT* Dakota Digital VHX gauges for '68-'77 Corvette

Custom Image Corvettes is happy to announce that Dakota Digital has introduced a set of direct bolt in gauges for the '68-'77 Corvettes. These gauges are the answer to our prayers. They have a host of features, Integrated blinkers, high beams, check engine, cruise, gear select, brake light, 0-60 mph, 1/4 mile. They work with standard gen 1 engine cars and my favorite the LS series of engines! awesome part for the LS guys is that all you have to do is plug the gauges into your OBD2 port! There are a couple cat6 cables and you are done!

We are a full line dealer. Call or email for more info or to place an order.

We got the very first set.

Those I really like. When they make '82 compliant gauges I might consider switching. I have a '77 but I use '82 gauges for the oil temp gauge and smaller water temp sender.

Those look pretty nice, but in my '71 I'm partial to analog gauges, not crazy about digital readouts. Are those the only face options available? What color is the background with the lights on? Are they dimmable? What do the back connections look like? What's the price?

I guess a little more snooping by me on the Dakota Digital site would have revealed a bit more info.

Those will be ready soon! They are using the Mistress for mockup.

I'm not a fan of losing functionality such as the reset button for the seat belts, and lights for headlamps and door ajar as the DD kit has block off plates for those. I see they have a dimmable knob for the lights but no idea how that would be able to fit in a vet, some one needs to do some fabricating.

Not trying to be negative, just maybe not the set for me. This is a great addition for our older cars and I'm hoping lots of others see a huge benefit with these as maybe DD may offer some different options in the future. It's a great start!

Perfect for my project. Although my Vette is a 76 the po put a 79 interrior in it so ill have to wait on dd to come out with the 78-81 gauges. What I like is they have all the expansion modules to go with the gauge line. Even if they don't complete the 78-81 gauges I could use their universal gauges. Another thing I like is the OBCII connection for my engine swap and the indicators like turn signal bright head light and check engine. Anyone intrested should spend some time reading the DD site.

I find a little piece of sanity through my vette project, other than that I rely on Jesus.

Must be pricey, no one has ventured a cost yet, (I know, go look it up). I do however, feel my wallet having spasms...

Thanks, I just installed my auto meter gauges about a year ago and you tease me with these, that's not very nice. Lol

These gauges look great, I wish they were available back when I was shopping for new gauges. On a side note I am happy with my setup.

Thanks for sharing, it nice to see more options available for the C3. You are a leader in bringing great changes to the C3 after market parts industry.

Riggs.

These gauges are $1495.

So who all would seriously be interested in a group buy if I arrange a good discount?
