1942 Harley Davidson Speedometer in 1936 Ford Hot Rod Dash

From Hop Up Magazine, January, 1952

One of the joys of looking through vintage hot rod magazines is seeing the free-style attitude that so many builders possessed in hot rod and racing's Golden Era of the 1950's.

"If it fits, works, and looks cool, let's do it," was the prevalent stance back then, and perfectly exemplified in this dash starring in a 1936 Ford roadster. Matched with a full-run of added Stewart Warner gauges, this centerpiece speedometer from an early-1940's Harley motorcycle adds just the right unique touch to make this instrument panel stand out from it's brethren.
