1962 instrument cluster, David O'Steen Ammeter, Heat Indicator Gauge, Speedometer, Oil Pressure Gauge, Fuel Level Gauge. The small speedometer (similar to the CJ-2A and CJ-3A) used in early models was manufactured by King-Seeley (KS). An Auto-Lite unit was used in Jeeps that registered in kilometers.

Starting as early as serial number 57348-34422 in the 1957 model year, a new larger speedometer/instrument cluster was used. Through serial number 57348-35521 it was a King-Seeley, and begining with 35522 there were Stewart-Warner (SW) units in 6 and 12-volt, and miles and kilometers.

For more details on part numbers and applications for KS and SW instruments according to serial number, see DJ-3A (and CJ-3B) Speedometers. See also these pages of the 1962 Jeep Universal Parts List (100K JPEG):
