B-Body Speedometer Type Font


Random question, but I want to do some number stenciling on my 69 2+2 which I converted to the US rally gauges. I am converting the ammeter to a volt meter and want to stencil some reference numbers on the face. So, does anyone know the type font name that was used for the speedometer numbers?

I cant help with the type of font,  but i have done similar projects on my 64 beaumont and my 68 GMC guages, converting to a voltmeter.   I used HO scale train car decal letters to replicate the numbers.  there are a variety of white letter sets available.  i think i used Microscale brand.

Thanks! Yes, that is the way I was planning to go. My father was an avid model railroader, so I am very familiar with the decals available. I still would like to try and match the font style as close as possible.

 Can you put up a picture of the font you're trying to replicate?

 Here is the speedometer font. I am looking for 5 number sets or 6 individual numbers: 8, 10, 12, 14, 16. I have come close, but when I find the right number "1" the "2" is never correct! Not trying to be picky, but would like it to look as close as possible.
