OK, this is embarrassing but I'm not sure what car these are spares for.

I think for my long since departed Spitfire, but I'm not sure and not sure if they are correct for a TR4a or early TR6.

Glass is flat.

The Temp gauge isn't familiar, especially since it registers to 100 degrees. The Oil and Amp gauges could be used for early TR6, but with black bezels.

TR4. Does Canada use Celsius or Fahrenheit?

Thanks guys - appreciate help in your backfilling the missing part(s) of my brain.

Now, let's talk about where I left the car keys....

Early TR4s had a domed glass similiar to the 3As. At about CT11000 the flat glass / half exposed needle was introduced. So these are from a late TR4 or any TR4A. The Lucas ammeter should have the month and year of manufacture stamped on the side of the case. As a side note, if you have the tach, TRA's restoration guide says at that same commission number the tachometer was changed so rather than have a red line at "red line" the entire 5 to 6,000 RPM sector was shaded red.
