Speedometer and tach options for an engine swapped car

Hello - hoping to get some thoughts on good options for my TR4a running a Nissan SR20DE engine. Looking for speedometer (maybe GPS based) and tach that will not look overly modern and are roughly the right size.

I suspect people here have figured that out, or may have some experiences to share.

Thanks!

Indeed, Speedhut

This one [www.speedhut.com]) is the speedo I used in my olde Land Rover. Not this face or font, but it's customisable.
No drive cable required, which is nice.

You might want a different top speed.

It does looks the part in an old setting.

Alas, three years on the digital mileage readout is bust. Never mind, the speedo still works and is very accurate so long as I'm not in a tunnel or under trees,

Yes the speedhut GPS speedo drive works well with the stock 4A gage in mine. I used redline gages in CA to convert my factory tach to work with the he 5.0 in mine. I love having factory looking gage set in the dash. FWIW, I replaced the TR4 amp gage with an elan volt gage and it looks very close to Being a match.
