WW2 Imperial Japanese Army – OIL TEMPERATURE GAUGE – Ki-83 Ki-84 – NICE!


Out of stock


You are bidding on a SUPERB used example of a WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Oil Temperature Gauge, as used in late-war Japanese Front Line Fighters and Bombers!  This was ONLY used in the Ki-83, Ki-84 / Ki-106 “Frank”, Ki-94, and Ki-46 “Dinah”!

This instrument measured the current Oil Temperature of the engine.  It was located on the main instrument panel of the aircraft.


 Made of brass, aluminum, and steel, this instrument is of mid/late-war manufacture.  It was recovered from a downed Japanese aircraft during the war.  It still retains 90% of it’s original finish, but the data plate is missing.  There are some slight marks and scratches due to the age, but nothing that takes away from the overall appearance.  The dial still glows when UV light is applied, and the switch functions perfectly.  The AMAZING feature is that it still retains the original capture tag!  I have shown its location in the last photo.

Like most Japanese instruments, this gauge is VERY rare and would be a FANTASTIC addition to any Japanese Instrument Collection.


Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————– 

Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase. 


——————- ABOUT ME —————– 

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
