Re: 1966 guages / speedometer lens question

Yep---aware of that----but I updated my brakes, and then used 67 indicator lamps
oil, alt, brake, temp along with the gauges.
So, I needed the high beam in the speedo.

Besides--just tossed that info out in the event one needs to replace his
speedometer on a 67 with indicators.

Depends if you're talking factory gauge or warning lamps dash.


1966 factory non-gauge dash with warning lamps - no BRAKE warning lamp.


1967 factory non-gauge dash with warning lamps - BRAKE warning lamp now standard.


1966 & 1967 factory gauge dash. BRAKE added to 66 and moved for 67 to rightmost lamp pod. Also note BRIGHT moved to leftmost lamp pod.

I think they're being made in the aftermarket now. I seem to remember talkin gwith someone who did a warning lamp to gauge conversion and needing the BRIGHT and BRAKE lenses but can't remember now who had them made.
