Does my 1965 Mustang (with Gauge Package) have a Factory Ammeter?

Most '65 model Mustangs came factory equipped with the "Long Style" Speedometer with warning lamps ("idiot lights") for the Oil Pressure and Ammmeter. '65 models equipped with the Deluxe/Pony Interior Package and/or the GT Package came Factory equipped with the 5 gauge instrument panel with the Round Gauges. All '66 models came with the Round Style Gauges.

Over the years, a popular conversion has been to put the Instrument Panel with the Round Style Gauges in a '65 originally equipped with the Warning Lamps. From the front of the panel, both the 65 and 66 gauges look alike. The '65 Ammeter is totally different than the '66. The Wiring harnesses for the two are also, of course, entirely different.

We have had numerous questions about this over years, as we sell the Exact Wiring Harnesses for all of the configurations. To help you order the correct harnesses, please take a look at the pictures below. If you have any questions at all, please give us a call at 540-896-2695.



This Picture shows the back of a 1965 Mustang with the FACTORY Deluxe/Pony and/or GT Gauge Package. The Specific gauge shown is the Ammeter Gauge. The Wiring Harness shown is just a section of our WG193 65 Under Dash Harness (w/Factory Gauges.) The Black w/Yellow Stripe wire routes through the loop on the back of this gauge.

This Picture shows the back of the Instrument Panel of a 1966 Mustang. The Specific gauge shown is the Ammeter Gauge. This Ammeter Gauge has two posts on the back like the rest of the gauges. If you have this one, it's from a '66 model. We,of course, have the correct '66 Wiring Harnesses for these also.
