Do you have any photos showing which gauges there should be? I'll have a look in my boxes of gauges if I know what I'm looking for - are they cream and brown in colour?

I'm pretty sure I spotted one of the "multi-gauges" (if you know what I mean, several gauges within one casing!) on eBay within the last couple of days if that's any help.
EDIT: No idea if it's appropriate for the year, but this is the one I saw: click me

Thanks for the answers.
The gauges are for an Austin Ten Cambridge 1937
So I thinks it must be those:

Hi
There is a picture of a dash possibly earlier (external indicators) on this page:
http://www.austintendriversclub.com/National%202008.htm

You might find another elsewhere on the site.

Hi
This is what the dash in my 1937 Austin 10 Cambridge looks like.
Speedo on the left with an inset wind up clock, ammeter/ oil pressure and fuel gauge cluster on right. I think that the three way gauge was common to several Austin models at this time, possibly the Big Seven and the 8.


Hope this helps.

I had a look but I couldn't find any gauges to match those in the photo above.
