Add on Temp and Amp gauges?

My 1952 MM has an ammeter and temperature gauge mounted under the center of the dashboard. I always thought they were original. Not so?

So has mine, but I put them there.
If they match the oil pressure and fuel gauges then they probably came from an MO Oxford or similar

Looks good, any chance of a photo with the steering wheel off?

it only took 6 years but I did a little more work on it, need to move the gauges a little to get them squared up

Tortron: This photo has been making the rounds in Minor groups ... is it your finished installation?

AND, did you use MG Magnette or Standard Vanguard Phase I gauges? More details most welcome!

I have two Minors in upstate New York. One is the 1961 Traveller my dad bought new that year in London, where I was born. It's had a hard life but is still running cheerfully at 54K miles. The second is the oldest Minor confirmed to survive in North America, a LHD high-light Tourer built in April 1949. It's a total basket case, but will be restored over the coming years.

Not mine I'm afraid (mines been in storage while I rode a bicycle around the world)
Yes I believe my gauges were from an early 50s vanguard. The later black faced ones seem more common, but they are mechanically the same so you could swap everything over. The Speedo with trip meter also had the same revolution to miles count so it was a straight swap as well
