The Buick Grand National last rolled off of the Flint, Michigan assembly line some 32 years ago, but that doesn’t mean that they’re old news. Quite the contrary, actually! We’ve been seeing a resurgence in the interest in these cars, and so have our friends in the industry.
Dakota Digital is no exception, and while they have been marketing their VHX gauges for these cars for several years, they’ve recently announced their HDX gauge cluster for the ’84-87 Buick Regal and Grand National.
Announcing 1984- 87 Buick Regal and Grand National HDX Instruments from Dakota Digital
Regals, T-Types and Grand Nationals can use this direct fit upgrade! Six analog instruments surround a full color TFT message center display which can be tweaked to show just what you need; boost, transmission temperature, fuel pressure and more can be added at a glance. 30 LED lighting colors can be changed to suit your paint and interior; all this fits the stock cluster and housing in 1984-87 Buick Regal models.
Available with your choice of black or silver alloy gauge-face styling, each HDX system allows the user to select independent illumination colors for the gauge readings and needles, as well as the message centers. Calibration and personal settings are manipulated with the built-in, capacitive-touch buttons, or the available Bluetooth app for Apple and Android devices.
Each needle hub is black nickel plated spun-aluminum to match the buttons. All HDX instrument systems feature dead-faced indicators (turn signals, high beam, check engine, cruise control, parking brake, plus two user-definable), and a red, settable warning light for each gauge. With our central control box, installation is greatly simplified with vehicle-harness sourced signals and supplied, solid state sending units connecting cleanly to their respective terminal.

For the Grand National the Boost gauge is displayed in the digital message centers.
