Brilliant chrome plating and superb machining surround state of the art electronics in the VHX-32F direct fit system for 1932 Fords. Packed with features yet contained in the stock dash opening, a fully optioned instrument system can be had without compromising irreplaceable vintage sheet metal.

Fully lit needles, backlit faces, and highly visible LCD message centers are a few of the things that you can see which set the VHX Series apart from yesterday’s traditional approach to instrumentation. A few of the features which you don’t normally see are the micro-controlled precision stepper motors, solid state sensors for unparalleled accuracy, and user-customizable display feedback, all supported by an unrivaled limited lifetime warranty which has become the standard for Dakota Digital instrumentation systems.

Dimensions:
Overall:  12.135" W x 4.925" H
Cutout:   11.685" W x 4.525" H

 *Includes new chrome bezel shown

Dakota Digital Direct-Fit instrument systems are fully engineered to fit the stock dash opening of the vehicle they were designed for. 

If you are interested in using this instrument system in a vehicle in which it was not intended to fit, you may experience installation challenges as it relates to mounting and proper viewing angle. 
Additionally, any modifications should be done to the vehicle’s dash or surrounding housings, rather than the VHX System, as to prevent damage and retain warranty coverage.

Dimensions are as follows:
              Overall:  12.135" W x 4.925" H
              Cutout:   11.685" W x 4.525" H

Depth will generally mimic the stock gauge cluster, this often falls in the 1.5”-2.5” range.

Water Temperature
·1/8" NPT, ground isolated sensor with a 10 ft harness.

Oil Pressure
·1/8" NPT solid state sensor with a 10 ft harness.

Cable Driven Speed Sensor/ Generator
 ·Replaces Ford and/ or GM style speedometer cables with a 10 ft harness. Sensor requires approximately 5" clearance extending between the cable drive output and any obstruction. Part # 130011 (sold separately) allows for relocation of the pulse generator when additional clearance is required.

Bushings
·Each kit comes with 1/8" to 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" NPT bushings along with bushings for 12mm and 16mm x 1.5 threads.

Calibration


Pushbutton
·Dakota Digital instruments are programmed and operated by the push of a button. Simply mount the included pushbuttons supplied with your gauges in a convenient and easily accessible location. These buttons are used to calibrate your speedometer, set the cylinder count and the fuel level gauge. Once properly configured these same buttons are used to access the wealth of information located in the Digital Message Centers.
