1968~79 VW Type 2, ONG, combined tachometer & oil-temperature indicator
NASkeet
On the right-hand side of the instrument panel, retro-fitted by Jürgen Bolle, to a German specification, Deutches Bundeswehr (i.e. German Army), 1972 VW 1600 Type 2 Kombi, is an ONG (i.e. Okaser Nöte Gard) brand, combined 250~6500 rpm tachometer & colour-zoned oil-temperature indicator (appears to have blue, green & red coloured zones, indicating cold, normal & hot), of identical style, to that of the stock, factory-fitted, VDO speedometer and combined fuel gauge & warning-light cluster.

For anyone seeking to maintain a stock, unmodified appearance, to their vehicle, this would be an ideal way of gaining the advantages of supplementary instrumentation. I conducted an Internet search for ONG instruments or gauges, to find out more about the company, but drew a blank. Perhaps one of you might have more luck!?!

For more information and illustrations, regarding this military specification, 1972 VW 1600 type 2, refer to the following magazine article:

David Eccles & Andreas Plogmaker, "Atten-Shun! Herr Oberst Reporting for duty", Volkswagen Camper & Commercial, Issue 14, Spring 2004, Pages 22, 23 & 25.

http://www.volkswagencamper.co.uk

The description given in the article's main text, which conflicts with the published picture, is as follows:

« Most of the original army gear came with the bus and one special item of note is the speedometer, which incorporates an oil temperature indicator made by ONG. This rare item was Bundeswehr Equipment and was fitted by the army. »

It was obvious to me, that the stock, factory-fitted 15~150 km speedometer is in the centre of the instrument panel and the right-hand instrument, is in fact, a combined tachometer & oil-temperature indicator, rather than as described in the article.

Note also on the left-hand side, just below the combination fuel gauge & warning-light cluster, the dashboard-mounted, double-throw, rotary switch, for the two-speed, ventilation booster fans.
