Here's a 67 with Autometer gauges. What info are you looking for? I've got a blank instrument panel, that I could measure some stuff on.

Well you see im building an 89 ford ranger right now with a 302 and at first i was gonna do a 2005+ dash in it and and ive came to the conclusion id much rather have a simplistic older style mustang dash in her so i need pictures of the whole dash every inch of it and measurements like the gauge sizes and the length and width of the dash just to see what all ill have to do to get this in im also planning on doing older mustang peddles in it.

Here is my 66 GT coup dash. I have some others when the dash was stripped clean before I put the new wiring harness in.

If so could you measure the breakbooster for me if i don't end up getting a complete aftermarket one from summit what size are the stock gauges in the mustang?

If you have a yard that close, you should head over there with your tape measure. You will get more ideas for measurements while you're looking at one. The '65/'66 steering column is a simple tube that surrounds a shaft that is integral to the steering gear, so you will likely be fabricating that anyway. You do realize the dash is welded in on an old one, right? You won't be able to just unbolt it and make it fit. How are your skills? It does sound like it would look great.

Lets see, at $3.50/ gal that could be an expensive trip just for measurements! I'll see if I can take some quick ones tonight or tomorrow if you don't get any other responses. Check online for instrument cluster bezels and clusters, I think there are some designed for aftermarket gauges.

There's a whole series of these 6 gauge ones but they are complete with gauges:

Have you narrowed down which year(s) you are looking at? If you like, I can get some measurements of my 67 tonight.

Could you just get the components, cluster, glove box door, dash pad, etc and fabricate the sheet metal dash? I like the simplicity of the '65/'66 dash.

id probably do some fiberglass work on it to fabricate it rather then metal easier to work with ill be molding my own center console bed cover and roll pan the truck is going to be used for drag and shows so im trying to go as light as possible

Here's the numbers for a '66. Everything's assembled with the dash pad in place and included in the height and depth numbers.
Width 53"
Height approx 11"
Depth (base of windshield to edge of pad 10"
Column tube 27" from wheel to firewall with another inch or two outside
Wheel diameter 16"
Gauge openings 4 X 1 9/16" and 1 X 3 1/2" (4 gauges and 1 speedo)

The glove box is a little cardboard deal that I didn't measure but its probably 8" or so deep.

The dash pad sticks out a couple of inches so you don't need the full 10" from the base of the windshield. The "face" of the metal dash is flush with the door opening, the cluster and glove box door stick out from there.

I'll get a pic from the side. Can't right now though.

Hope that's what you're looking for. Took longer to type than to measure!
