Default Does anyone know what this instrument cluster is from?

It was in with some flathead stuff I bought, but don't think it's Ford.

Yea, me too, that's why it had to follow me home.
I was thinking it would look good in my hotrod project. I imagine it had a matching speedo.

It's not early Ford. Maybe Lincoln?

very true. infact that is a very common stewart warner gauge cluster used on many applications, the only difference would be that most had a name or logo in the middle. crosley, mack, white, diamond T, federal trucks etc. my wwII halftracks used them from the beginning in about 1940. industrial motors, street sweepers etc. just all had a different face. common up to about 1950 i believe. in this one, the answer to the puzzle is the logo in the middle, what ever that belongs to.

OK then, if that's the case, I won't mind using it in my project. Thanks for your help.

Now the challenge will be to find the correct senders.

temp is mechanical, so is oil pressure. Amp meter is 2 electrical connections. only fuel needs a sender.

If the amp meter has two post connections I suspect it is not a Ford gauge panel. Fords had the loop connection
