      I hope they start making repro gauges some day.Nothing against the digital ones but there is something about the needles going nuts in the original gauges thar can't be beat.I would of loved to have an original tach in my 72 but 1000$ for the gauges and wiring harness is more than I want to pay.It mmight be cheaper to find a donor car and resell the rest hahaha.

        I doubt any manufacturer is going to make the tach and gauges.
        I cannot even get any of them to make the speedo w / tach lens as there were only 32000 - 71-3's ordered with instrumentation group.

            There is always hope - they only made about 24,000 71-73 convertibles.

            Check out Motorcity_Mustang on Ebay - he always has hard to find used parts that nobody reproduces. As you know TMI makes sprint seats covers and Mustang Unlimited has the blue door carpet.
