Hey! Got a pony + Dynacorn conversion kit, about to start. Not sure about keeping original dashboard plus seats but was curious if any of it is original.

What surprises me, it has a tachometer and it looks original @ least same old as other gauges, and strange bucket seats that also old so not sure what is this is about 💁‍♂️

I'm not sure about the tachometer but the seats look like a kit recover of some seats out of a 1980s fox body Mustang

Neither is original. The seats look to me to be BMW/VW, etc. Recaro's or Foxbody Mustang/Thunderbird units, although I don't see a lumbar adjuster... The tachometer is aftermarket. The Mustang "tach cluster" omitted the oil pressure gauge and ammeter, replacing them with warning lamps, and a large tach was placed opposite the speedometer.

Neither are original but both are good upgrades. I upgraded my cluster to a 67-68 Cougar instrument cluster with tach- for some reason many more tachs were installed in Cougars than Mustangs and they used to be rather common and cheap.

I have one of those tachs in my ‘68. The were called retrograde and made by a guy in Australia. No longer being manufactured. If operating still, should fetch you a worthwhile monetary return……
Nice item.
