    Oil pressure gauge

    So I'm started putting my 68, 383 GTS back to original. Question, did Darts come with only a low pressure Oil Light or could you get a Oil pressure gauge in the gauge cluster? Looking at the service manual it only shows a light.

    If you have the cheapo cluster then all you have is the idiot light. If you car had the rallye gauges then you most likely have a guage. I would just add a mechanical oil pressure guage and you could hide it in the glove box.

    So, Dart's had a option of a rally gauge cluster, I will start looking through the boxes that came with my Dart and see if there is one . Previous owner installed a restored gauge cluster.

    Thanks

    No rallye cluster in a Dart until 1970 and then 1971 was the last year. This was also only on 340 cars.

    So, to answer your question. In 1968 there was no oil gauge in any Dart.
