Omega Kustom Avant Quad Gauges, 47-53 Chevy, Speedo/Tachometer. Avant gauges from Omega are a call back to the elegant designs of the art deco 1930s. For those wanting to invoke the Streamline Moderne spirit of cars such as the 1936 Chevrolet Master Deluxe, the 1937 Oldsmobile Club Coupe, the 1933 Pierce-Arrow Silver Arrow, or maybe even the 1936 Cord 810, these gauges are just the ticket. With dual-layered faces, era-correct lettering, perimeter lighting, and backlit, illuminated numbers, the gauges will add a sense of period-correct class to any build. Despite their pre-war appearances, they feature the latest technology for perfect accuracy. If you’ve been wanting to add a touch of this style to your nostalgic hot rod’s dashboard and why wouldn’t you? , you’re probably already familiar with some of the challenges this task presents. Sourcing the desired gauges is difficult, they’re most likely in poor condition, they will need to be serviced, they will require custom adapters/cables, custom holes in the dash will need to be cut, and they may not provide all of the readings that you would like. If that sounds tedious, expensive, and only partially beneficial, that’s what we thought too. The Avant gauges have been painstakingly designed to be an affordable, incredibly accurate, easy to use, and durable alternative. The gauges are all common aftermarket sizes, allowing for simple installation using readily available aftermarket gauge panels. To make things even more stress-free we have included temperature, oil pressure, and fuel level senders as well. 4-3/8 Electric Speedometer/Tachometer Combination Gauge.

The 1930s were a wondrous time for automotive design, due almost entirely to a trend that was set off at the 1933-34 “Century of Progress” Chicago Worlds Fair. The iconic style of mid-30’s cars like the Buick 6, Oldsmobile Club Coupe, and the Lincoln-Zephyr V12 is known as Streamline Moderne, or “Art Deco in Motion”. The concept of machines was changing from rhythmic gear turning to smooth motion, design was becoming less about pure functionality and more about simplicity, economy, and aesthetics. Designers were quickly learning about clean, graceful design and starting to get rid of useless protruberances and ugly corners. For the first time ever, these designs were not only available to the upper class, but they were also available in mass-produced and affordable everyday products for the home, the office, or the road. This new approach to design was uniquely American and helped give the public optimism by associating with progress and a better life during difficult times. All of a sudden, an average consumer was being offered smart detailing that was both functional and appealing in design. From the simple and clear instrumentation of a Chevrolet to the bold design of an Oldsmobile, a person’s car was now the ultimate personal accessory – desirable for all aspects, including speed, luxury, practicality, and design. All too quickly, however, automobile production was halted for World War II. When production resumed design was taken down a different path, leaving us with a short period of stylish, optimistic cars to drool over. This history of economic and aesthetic functionality inspired every bit of the Avant family of gauges. All gauges are perimeter lit, flooding the gauge with light that reflects off of the case sides to flow all around the dial. In addition, backlit numbers allow for hi-definition viewing at night. All bezels are made from hand-polished stainless steel, not chrome, for a durable finish that meets marine salt corrosion specifications. All lenses are made from glass for ultimate clarity. Every gauge is also watertight from the front. The Avant line is a uniquely durable and accurate product, while the design is a perfect match for your ride’s art deco theme.
