Default Aristocrat dash swap

Hi guys,

I have an ad for an aristocrat dash panel and I did not put oval or round in the description. Have had a few people say they have one but it is for a round speedo, I have a 29 that is oval. Do the dash panels swap if you change the speedometer to match the panel? Better yet would a 30-31 round aristocrat fit my 29 if I ran a round speedo?

I don't think you will get a good fit. Of course anything can be made to fit with a big enough hammer!

Different panels as they were overlay and would fit over the original gauge panel and gauges

Update your add. As the originator of the ad you can do that, ether as an edit or add a posting.

I would like to find a 31 Aristocrat (round speedometer). They seem to be as scarce as hen's teeth.

Type in "Vintage Dunn Aristocrat Model A dash" on ebay, they both have come up occasionally there.
