1969 Chris Craft Commander Gauges - Need Help With Replacement

Hi All,

Need some help -- my gauges on the lower helm (69' CC Commander) need to be replaced.  Can anyone help me with suggestions on where to find similar gauges or replacements?  Thanks

Dan

They can be restored too but you'd  be farther ahead to just replace them. There are several retro looking gauge manufacturers out there

Like classic instruments and Faria

Those are nice gauges! What about us poor unfortunate souls that have post 1970 commanders with the very seventies multigauge clusters. Half of mine do not work and I'd like to punt them.

I have some fresh water gauges I bought a while back. They cam from a "67 31 Commander owner in Ohio. Chrome in good shape. I also have one of the gauge clusters from my "73 410. Not sure if it works, but it might.

If you guys are interested let me know. Price is right. Any that don't meet your expectations will be refunded.

I had Clawson Classic Instruments in Washington restore my gauges.

I also had the tachs converted to electric.

I also had the amps gauge changed to volts

And split my temp gaugees so I could also have fuel gauges with out adding more holes

Mark did a fantastic job

It was around $2,600 . Certainly not cheep but exceptional quality.  Also keep in mind that a considerable chunk of the price I paid was in converting to elect, tachs, switching ammeters to read volts and turning my temp gauges  into a dual gauges that  read both temp and fuel level.

Jeremy,

What did it cost to have your gauges done at Mark Clawson?

Pricey for sure but I'm all about keeping "the look" 

There's no brand new gauges out there that "command" the same wow facter as the originals
