I believe this is a standalone 565-624 panel.

That is cool as hell, and in perfect shape, too. The Ebay photo definitely goes into my Pictures file, and I'd love to have that on the wall of my study.

Can't afford it, though..

This looks like the actual item. I compared it to the one we have mounted aboard PT658 and it is identical except on the PT658 panel, the 3 manifold pressure gages are mounted on the top row and the Tachometers are on the bottom row. Maybe Elco has it the way shown on the ebay photos?

Yes Jerry, as far as I can tell all the Elco 80's had the tachs on top. This is PT 613. I see the ebay MPs go higher, 75 as opposed to 50 in the 613 photo:

This photo of a PT 625 Class from https://www.history.navy.mil/content/history/nhhc/our-collections/photography/numerical-list-of-images/nhhc-series/nh-series/NH-71000/NH-71661.html shows the MPs on the bottom. I've also noticed that the needles on some MP gauges at rest read ambient pressure while some point straight down. Mechanical vs electrical gauges maybe?:

Thanks Jerry, I didn't know that both Higgins and Elco used the same panels.

I wonder if it is a part that was supplied by Packard? Since it is for the Packard engines that would make sense.
