1938 Hudson Super Terraplane, barn find... with the coolest dash and gauges

I dig the hood and grill chrome

It's got the most interesting shifter, but look just past that and see the oil pressure indicator... and it doesn't read numbers when not running, it simply says NO oil pressure... simple, straightforward, to the point. How did this not become the norm?

No oil pressure and not charging, I love it!


  1. I guess these NO/YES gauges were made by Schwarze Electric (Michigan).
    I've found a similar Schwarze gauge combined with an ammeter here in Europe.
    Very rare and don't know were it does come from.
