Here we have an ULTRA RARE 1940s / 1950s Airguide VISI-DOME Illuminated Auto Compass in BRAND NEW original condition! The compass comes in its original box, with instruction sheet, and the compass is still wrapped in its original cellophane! We did not touch it either; New Old Stock (NOS)! The Airguide compasses were made in the USA from about 1930. This very early model features a long arm to mount securely to the dashboard of your classic car. The later (Nomad) Airguide models were mounted on top of the dashboard with a U mount.
Compasses of this kind would typically be fitted to American cars and European sports cars which were exported to the USA. This compass would be a true neck-turner in your Austin Healey 100 / 3000, Jaguar XK, Mercedes-Benz SL and other classic car of the 1950s! A beautiful and ULTRA RARE motoring item. “Enjoy the ride!”
