Original 1970 Dodge Challenger Standard Gauge Assembly
« on: December 17, 2012 - 08:49:04 PM »
Original 1970 Dodge Challenger standard gauge assembly.  This is a one year only assembly for the 1970 Dodge Challenger. It appears that the speedometer is correct for a 70 model year Challenger and the fuel/temp/alt gauges are correct for 71-4 Challenger and 70-4 Barracuda/Cuda. 

It was disassemblied, cleaned, clear lense was polished, then reassemblied.  All of the screws are original. It's missing the clock block off plastic plug, they are not hard to find, otherwise a clock could be installed.  Very nice and clean assembly.  $75

I will double box this item when shipping, it will be insured with delivery confirmation.

Any questions or need additional pictures just let me know.

Thanks!

The speedo looks right but the other gauges I belive are 71-74? 70 Challenger gauges say "gasoline", "Alternator", "temperature" and the font and art work is a little different.
At least mine are on my 70 Challenger? Maybe it's a late 70 thing?

This looks confusing to some, but I know my clusters well. THis is a nice dash here. This is a 70 CHALLENGER/71 BARRACUDA SPEEDOMETER. All of the parts are mountd in a 70 CHALLENGER GAUGE HOUSING. Fuel, Temp & ALT gauge are 70-74 Barracuda & 71-74 Challenger. 70 Challengers have GASOLINE, TEMPERATURE, & ALTERNATOR on the lower part of the gauge. The needle is skinnier & not pointed on 70 Challengers. However, these will work & fit any e-body, BUT the housing is different due to the warning light holes are reset-deeper on the housing, which allows the 1-year only ribbed 70 Challenger outer ribbed bezel on it. If you put this into a 70-74 Cuda or 71-74 challenger, it will fit as well, BUT the warning lights will be slightly dim, & it will reflect light around inside the cover into the clear lens & look crappy. Not cutting down this cluster, but I have had 100's of clusters in the past & still some now & know them well. I once had a 72 Barracuda winter beater back in 1984 (rusted & crashed some but parts car that spring '85) & it had a nice ralley dash in it back then, I pulled it out & installed a standard dash cluster from a 70 challenger & it worked just fine, with some rewireing of course to the harness which had some flaws in it. Now, If you think the clocks are the same, wait! there is 2 different standard dash clocks also. I'll find & post a few pics of that as well for all of us to see, if you don't know the difference! I have tons of pictures of standard dashes & ralleys tucked into my files, so if anyone needs a picture for referance, just ask me!

Thanks,  I just want the speedo for my 70 Challenger.  I knew the other gauges were not correct for a 70 Challenger. The rest I will most likely find good homes for with members on here.
