TR7/TR8 Dashboards / Instrument Clusters.

It's my hope with this page to illustrate all the different dash clusters that were shipped with the TR7/TR8 during it's production run.    Use the key below to understand what informational light is assigned to which number.


 

 

Here is a very early 1975 dashboard with a couple of unique features.  The Tachometer has a 6000 rpm redline and the volt meter has a green zone.

This dash is a 1981 Canadian TR7 dashboard.  km/h speedometers did not have any MPH data written on them, so I guess Canadian guests to the US were expected to guess :).   This model year had several major changes - both the clock and the speedometer have a push button coming out of the face.  All other gages have a pictorial diagram on them explaining their function.  A battery on the volts gauge, a picture of a fuel pump on the fuel gauge and a thermostat picture on the temperature gauge.  The information display down the center has also been changed from words to icons.
