Instrument Panel Connector

Anyone know where I can get the female connector to the 67 instrument panel (same one that is part of the printed circuit board)?

I'm in the process of upgrading/restoring/modifing/and repairing a 67 coupe, and am installing the Covan panel with Auto Meter gages. I can just cut the male off the harness an put my own connector in, but thought I may be able to get the one tha just mates with the current harness.

Thanks,

Re: Instrument Panel Connector

Never seen one... you could probably fab something in an afternoon by etching two circuit boards and putting a bracket between them.

I ended up cutting the harness off my connector and putting a Metripack on it to go to my Covan's panel.

Re: Instrument Panel Connector

The connector IS the PCB, along with the vutout in the panel behind it. There's nothing else there.

Re: Instrument Panel Connector

You can purchase white molex connectors with crimp on pins if your doing a custom job. But the mylar PWB on the back of the gauge cluster is a custom job and must be mated with the OEM connector. I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to do, but the Molex connector may serve your need. Do a search for molex on http://www.digikey.com for example - there are a few other suppliers out there as well.

Re: Instrument Panel Connector

If you decide not to use the male connector let me know. I need one. The guys that were restoring my car threw out the old wiring harness with connectors and all. i am using a aftermarket wiring harness that doesnt have any connectors to go back to the original speedometer or gauges.

Thanks,

Re: Instrument Panel Connector

Thanks all for the replies. I just purchased a Radio Shack 12 pin male/female and will go that way.

JOHNRSWEAT: I'll let you know about the male connector, but for now I may keep it just in case I get that offer I can't refuse and someone wants to return it to orignal. I'm doing so many other mods it may not matter anyway. I'll let you know soon.

Thanks again.
