ALPINA Gauge Cluster

Up for sale is my replica, euro-spec ALPINA silver dollar cluster.

 

I carefully built this to full ALPINA spec with the correct black silver dollars, black trim rings, ALPINA-style tach, and adjustable redline needle!

 

If ALPINA built your 2002 in the early 70s, this is what your cluster would look like. The 200kph speedometer makes this cluster a euro-spec unit, as opposed to the more common 120mph speedo.

 

Everything has been tested and is in working order except the odometer. The uber-rare euro-spec 200kph speedo functions properly, and the adjustable redline needle is quite the conversation piece!

 

Bid here on eBay:

Nice looking cluster, but What's the deal with the Odometer?

I'd actually be quite interested in this unit.

Thanks!

 

When I tested it, the odometer went up to "001" then stopped, as if it was slipping. This seems to be a common problem, and DIY fixes have been documented on the FAQ. I didn't mess with it because I've never repaired an odometer, and this rare unit was not the one to learn on!

I normally charge $125. You should also ask what Palo Alto Speedometer or North Hollywood if you are in CA. Another option, I will be at SoCal Vintage with my tools. Bring whatever you want fixed to that event. The cost will be discounted but can't tell you what until I get there. We will have a booth next to Jeff Ireland right in the middle.

that is something that can be swapped out pretty fast but what about the minivan?

 

Ha!  I wonder how many 'yeah, ok, I'll only do it if i can swap it back to stock in an afternoon' projects can be compiled together before one loses the trail completely...

The auction ends tonight at 7PM (PST/West Coast time) so don't miss it folks!

 

The current bid is less than half of what the poorly-done fakes were bringing recently on eBay ($600!). This one is very well done and has all the cool details that will set you apart from the crowd. Take a look here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/252501746614?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
