The ’36 GMC requires 10 pieces for a complete set, and the ’37 GMC requires 8 pieces for a complete set. All the trim is made of 18-gauge steel just like the originals.

3-IN-1 Gauges From Doc’s Kustom
It’d be hard to find a better looking set of combo gauges than these 3-in-1s from Doc’s Kustom, made by the company’s gauge division, Omega Kustom Instruments. They come in the three colors you see here (black, tan, or white), and feature stainless steel bezels and glass lenses. The speedometer incorporates oil pressure and engine temperature, with one button programming and a trip odometer. The tach combines a voltmeter and fuel level gauge. Together, it’s a perfect way to package six instruments into any small available space. The 4.725-inch size is perfect for many early dashboards that incorporated large-style gauges, including ’47-54 Chevy trucks, ’57-59 Chevy cars, and many more. Panels and adapter kits are available for some applications. Best of all, they’re made in the USA and come with a three-year warrantee.
