Another uninformed seller making claims of original. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-69-Ford-Mustang-Shelby-Faria-Console-Gauges-ORIGINAL-GT-350-500-RARE-/132127126948  I will give him the benefit of the doubt given it is complicated to distinguish between good repros and assemblyline.  The gauges you have are reproduction. The assemblyline gauges are side lighted. The light comes in from slits on ether side of the gauge case.  The repros are back lighted . The originals have a cup that fits over the gauge with the light bulb socket plugged into the cup. The repros are stand alone and the light bulb and socket plugs into the back of the gauge. Also the background on assemblyline are a dark charcoal gray. The later original service gauges and the repros have a all black background. I messaged the seller and hopefully he will amend is post and expectations. I didn't want someone here or anywhere for that matter to get burned thinking they are genuine Shelby.

No, he seems to be on the other side of the state.

The seller messaged me and said he would adjust his description. I looked and he took out the word "original". Given he didn't say that they were reproduction he left it up to the buyer to determine what is what. Is this a example of lying by omission given you know the truth? I hate to be cynical but given his same high expectation of price I don't think he is being completely honorable in this case.  His same high expectations on the price may also influence a buyers perception of if being original instead of repro given no information. Well at least he changed the wording so maybe a uninformed person will inquire. If someone buys them thinking they are genuine they will technically not have recourse through Ebay because he didn't claim that they were genuine. Maybe all I did was help him fine tune his deception.  Frustration . At least those reading here will not be fooled.   Chug a Lug

I asked about them and got this: 

"They aren't the original from 69 but they made them to go in the console after that and those are the ones."
