Product Description


Direct Shipment from Dakota Digital





The new VHX Systems fit directly into the stock instrument bezel of a 1955-59 Chevy Pickup without modification, adding a wealth of features to this iconic vehicle.

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, the VHX Series has completely revolutionized the instrumentation industry.

Included System Components: The VHX Series utilizes an outboard control module which offers several benefits, the most important being simplicity. Instead of bringing bundles of wiring directly to the instruments, it will be routed to the control module (measuring 5.5" x 4.5" x 1") which can be tucked away or centralized in a convenient under-dash location. A single ribbon cable connects the display to the control module, eliminating clutter and providing simplified connections. On-board diagnostics provide simplified troubleshooting, while terminal strips provide secure wire termination. The VHX Series also includes laboratory-grade solid state sensors for tremendous accuracy, as well as 12' harness with weather-tight connections to make installation a snap. Included speed sensor easily converts mechanical speedometer cable into electric when necessary. Oil pressure and water temp sensors contain 1/8" NPT sensors, as well as bushings to convert 1/4", 3/8", 1/2" NPT, in addition to 12mm and 16mm variations for late model GM applications. Two pushbutton switches also enclosed allow for initial setup and scrolling through Message Center displays.

  • Speedometer: 0-120/140/160 MPH analog depending upon application, 0-255 MPH/KPH digitally in message center
