How many cars look like this? Dodge, Plymouth or DeSoto?

 

I could even have the face remade (I think). One piece would cover where the

writing is.

The 51 plymouth is by itself. 52-54 use the same gauges but with a different color scheme.

That's from a '53 or '54 Plymouth. '51 and '52 have some writing on the chrome surround/bezel but the gauges and speedo are the same except '51 the gauges are black with some black on the speedo also.

No, the gauges are just like the ones in the '52, 53, and 54 Plymouth but black with white lettering. There are some on ebay for the '51 Plymouth. Here's one. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/NOS-MOPAR-1951-Plymouth-Oil-Pressure-Gauge-/4581652017?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item111167631&vxp=mtr

OK. The look is different, but the size is the same?

All bottom swingers, yes?

 

All bottom swingers but not sure about the size.

Same shape but has some black on it around the top and silver below like the later ones. Most people would not know the difference. I just happen to own a '51.

OK. Once I come up with the correct shape of the gauge faces and speedo, it's not hard at all to change colors and fonts.

 

Wanna be the guinea pig? :)

 

I appreciate the offer but all my gauges and speedo for the '51 are in pretty decent shape. However, I am sure there are lots of guys on the forum ready and willing to be a "guinea pig".
