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.
