Dissect A Dash: The Fred Stebbins Roadster
The Fred Stebbins homebuilt special is a masterpiece of ingenuity. Using fiberglass molds, a boat windshield and a Crosley donor, he made a throwback-styled to-scale hot rod, that even for his time was a 50's tribute, in 1970.
The dash is simple, clean, and unique. He's running the Sun Tach (at first blush; it could be SW, very hard to see through the pixels), a Stewart Warner pressure gauge, and the timeless Stewart Warner -made Crosley "four-in-one" gauge cluster.
Here's a closeup shot of that Crosley cluster. It's really a beautiful set.
Sometimes using what you have results in the perfect design; in this case, it's 100% true!
