D-P Chicago "Nite-Lite" Moto Meter Car Radiator Temperature Guage Blue Lens
Nite-Lite Motometer Radiator Cap
A beautiful original Moto-Meter temperature guage. Reads "Nite-Lite - reg", and "D-P Chicago" on the rim. The glass is very clean with good visibility. The indicator face inside reads "Danger - Steam", "Summer Average", "Cool Motor", and gives the messages "A cool motor causing gasoline waste - use radiator cover", and "A sudden rise indicates trouble - stop and investigate".
The back of the gauge has a rounded area similar to a diving bell, with clear viewing ports around the edge, and a round blue-tinted lens in the middle. It appears this could have housed a light bulb. Not cleaned.
Very rare to find one of these now.
