howdy I got a set of factory 67 console gauges with fuel gauge that I want to put in my 67 conv with a big 454 numerous other mods but not cut up at all I am planning to put some autometer gauges in it and was wondering if it is possibly worth to much to do this to a restorer once they are in my car they wont be coming out seeing as I have owned the car since 1975 you can see it is a member of the family so I wouldnt be just cutting it up then lossing interest see why I am asking my car is very nice but not a resto
dont want to be acquised of finger painting on a peecasooo

Wow! Say that sentence three times fast. Hey Bruce what has been said 1000 times here before is basically that it is your car to do with what you please. There will always be someone around who won't like what you've done and odds are that the size of their mouth is inversely proportional to their I.Q.
Now, is there something wrong with the guages you have - or do you just want something different? I'd try the Auto Meters if yours are broke but use the factory units if they work - IMHO.

I agree with Kevin. It is your car, what every make you happy and makes you want to drive it.
I was wondering if you have headers on your big block. If so, what type. I have plans on installing a Big Block in a 67 Firebird.
Now you can see why I agree with Kevin. I get a lot of flack for this change!

THE MAIN REASON I WANTED TO CHANGE IS BECAUSE OF I GOT A SET OF AOTOMETER OIL TEMP VAC AND WANT TO US THEM I REALLY WAS MORE CURIOUS ABOUT THE WORTH NATION WIDE AS MUCH AS DOING THE CHANGE BESIDES I DONT LIKE IT LOOKING LIKE I HAVE 2 GAS GAUGES THE ? ABOUT THE HEADERS TO ME I USED HEDMAN SHORTY HEADERS NOT BLOCKHUGGERS THESE HAVE A COLLECTOR THAT RUNS ALMOST VERTICAL TO FIRE WALL INSTEAD OF HORIZONTAL UNDER FLOOR PAN THIS GIVES YOU GREAT CLEARANCE IF YOU PLAN TO LOWER CAR AND THEY WHERE UNDER 100.
