Dakota Digital VHX-55C-K-W Details

The 1955-56 Chevy car dash is lacking in information; VHX-55C makes use of the iconic factory gauge cluster, filling it out with six analog readouts on top of dual LCD message centers. Able to be used with factory or reproduction bezels (sold separately). Factory gear-indicator is eliminated; use GSS-2000 for full gear-word readouts in the message centers.

Fully lit needles, backlit faces, and highly visible LCD message centers are a few of the things that you can see which set the VHX Series apart from yesterday’s traditional approach to instrumentation. A few of the features which you don’t normally see are the micro-controlled precision stepper motors, solid-state sensors for unparalleled accuracy, and user-customizable display feedback, all supported by an unrivaled limited lifetime warranty which has become the standard for Dakota Digital instrumentation systems. Completely engineered and manufactured at our facility in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, the VHX Series has completely revolutionized the instrumentation industry!

System uses OEM or reproduction style bezel.

Instrument system eliminates the stock automatic gear shift indicator immediately above steering column. To display gear position, add GSS-2000 Gear Shift Sensor (sold separately)
