Omega Kustom Avant Gauges

Add Article To List
The dual layered faces of the new Omega Avant gauges offer a unique alternative to boring gauges.

Open up any magazine that features custom cars or hot rods and your bound to see a few with restored vintage gauges. They’re beautiful and often perfectly compliment the vibe of the car. But what’s not immediately apparent is the substantial cost and effort involved. First, finding the original gauges from a car that hasn’t been produced for 80-plus years can be difficult. Then, restoring the crusty, frozen mechanisms, faces, and lenses is also costly, highly specialized work. Not to mention upgrading them to work with modern technology. No wonder so many of us budget home builders end up with the same generic black and white analog dials in our cars.

These Omega Avant gauges from Speedway Motors were designed to be a stylish alternative that we can all afford. Inspired by the deco masterpieces in cars like the Lincoln Zephyr and Coffin-nosed Cord, these gauges will look right at home in your 30’s or 40’s street rod, hot rod, or custom. But the beauty of this design is in it's trademark subtlety and simplicity. That means that this design will compliment cars from other eras as well.

These gauges come in standard 3-3/8" and 2-1/16" sizes, perfect for many aftermarket panels.

These were designed right here at Speedway Motors with great care taken to make sure that every detail was correct. The font is just right for the streamline modern design they are emulating. The pointer looks right at home as well. And the subtle colors evoke the era without clashing with your interior. We even paid attention to the lighting. Your gauges can’t look cool by day but disappoint when you’re cruising at night. These are lit around the perimeter, allowing the face to be flooded with light, and the numbers are backlit for clear viewing.

We we're kidding about these looking great at night.

In addition to looking cool, these gauges were also designed to function flawlessly, as you would expect from a modern gauge set. They are available in 6-gauge and 5- gauge (no tach) in both mechanical and electronic speedometer versions. The tach and speedo are 3-3/8” and water temp, oil pressure, volts, and fuel are all 2-1/16”. These common sizes allow for a wide variety of fitment options. To make things even easier, all the senders are included in the kit, even the 240-33 ohm fuel level sender.

The gauges that you choose say a lot about the car surrounding them. These Omega Avant gauges will add a touch of subtle style to your car without breaking the bank.

Update: we’re proud of these gauges, and we’re honored that the judges at SEMA loved them too, awarding them with best new Interior Accessory for 2020! And there’s more to come. Stay tuned for some exciting additions to the Avant series. (We don’t want to spoil the surprise, but there might just be some larger combo and quad gauges available soon...)
