This WWII-era North American Harvard II instrument panel resides in the collection of our friend Charles Darby of New Zealand.
According to Charles:
"The Harvard II panel is from an NA-66 or an NA-88, the difference being that the former were ordered direct from North American by the RNZAF and the latter were ordered by the RAF for the Empire Air Training Scheme, then distributed among some of the participating nations including New Zealand. These aircraft were not Lease-Lend, so never had T-6 designations. It may be of interest to note the Gun Air Pressure gauge at bottom right, and the Army Type C-2 AH with the ball-in-a-tube, relatively unusual for trainers "
