Default ford cab 13 dash

Hi to all i will soon be working on my ford cab 13 and i am wandering what color is the speedo face and the guages. My dash has faded to badly to tell. I have in the past bought gauges and they range in color tan , black,gray red letter and white letters so i am looking for help in picking the proper color

The face background is a dark graphite colour, while the lettering is either white or white-outlined red, depending on the gauge.

There are usually any number of New Old Stock gauges, even Speedometers, available on E-bay, it's just a matter of biding your time until the right item at the right price turns up.

If you have good working gauges with poor condition faces, there are also vendors that sell printed vinyl decals to apply.
