The big curves of the second-generation Torino carried from the outside in. With a stock horizontal sweeping speedometer cluster in place, the OEM dash just doesn’t lend itself well to most aftermarket instrumentation.
The direct-fit VHX Series is now here, engineered to fit this unique dash opening. While it may look right at home, you’ll enjoy the modern features, crisp LED backlighting and usability of today’s technology.
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. Completely engineered and manufactured at our facility in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
·Back lit technology is popular with performance instrumentation due to precise lighting allowing you see what is truly important when you really need it at a quick glance. Each number, tick mark, annunciator, needle, indicator and digital message center is lit by a series of LEDs behind the gauge face.
