The 1969 Camaro is one of the most coveted pony cars in automotive history. A one-year only styling treatment, its extended production run into 1970. Partly due its popularity, but mostly because the second-generation Camaro wasn’t ready for production until midyear. As a result, there’s a TON of them!
Factor in all of the reproduction component and complete body shells that you can now buy, and there’s seemingly more ’69 Camaros on the road today than there were in 1969. The resto-mod segment is booming and everyone wants to implement modern tech into their own — without sacrificing the original flavor of the cockpit.
Luckily, Dakota Digital is all over this, with their newly-released Retrotech Series RTX gauges. Designed to to mimic the overall look and theme of the OEM ’69 Camaro gauges, they implement all of today’s latest and greatest technology.
DAKOTA DIGITAL RELEASES THE RETROTECH SERIES OF INSTRUMENTATION TO FIT 1969 CHEVY CAMARO
A drop-in upgrade for your stock 1969 Camaro gauge housing, this Retrotech package will have even the most diehard Camaro fanatic fooled. With the key off, the look is all but OEM with a large speedometer and tach, but adding power changes everything. Segmented LED bars come alive to display oil pressure, coolant temperature, voltage and fuel level and the twin TFT message centers display a full array of information.
The RTX series is the latest from Dakota Digital, focused on retaining that stock look without sacrificing the late-model features you love. Every effort has been put forth to incorporate OEM design elements regarding the layout, face styling and indicators. A casual glance may dismiss these as original equipment, but once you hit the switch and the LED backlighting comes on in your favorite color scheme, all doubts will be removed.
Starting from scratch, CNC machined housings are filled with electronics designed and built in-house, helping Dakota Digital once again raise the bar for aftermarket instrumentation. The high-definition TFT message centers can be fully configured to display just about any piece of information needed. As you’ve come to expect from Dakota Digital, the RTX series utilizes a central control box to make installation and setup as easy as possible.
