That's a bit steep, but it's legit...center gauge was for 4-speed cars without consoles, but with a tach...funny thing. there was an ad in the newspaper for a 69 Z/28 X-77 a few years ago for $400.00! It was a legit ad...the car was rusted beyond belief..it was an X-33 though...wrong motor/trans, plain jane Z..I bought the car for $250.00 because it had the center fuel gauge!!!

It was the U16 option, Tach without gages. $700 give us a break. A friend picked a nos one up in Carlisle for $25, that was a steal.

For a long time, the repops were vacuum formed (like milk jugs)with paper aplique face. They were junk. Classic recently started repopping them with die cast plastic and silk screened face. Looks good, I bought one for about $150. I found an original bezel and polished it up (I put it in a safe place, and have not been able to find it for 3 years)
I can't imagine the car that would warrant a $700 gage.
