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.
