Classic Smith’s gauges

One of my favorite things about classic British cars is the wonderful Smith’s gauges most of them use. The speedometer on my Triumph Spitfire wasn’t always the most accurate at low speeds but it looked fantastic. All the other gauges worked flawlessly and looked great set against the wood grain dash. Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car has a rather nice history of Smith’s online which makes for some nice lunch break reading.

here is a bonus vintage ad as well.
