I've used water temp gages as oil temp gages for decades. I used the gages from Fiat 124 Spiders, just to have something that's a bit different. Also, some of those go to 300F/150C.

Tom, have you considered using the water temp gauge as an oil temp gauge?
 I'm doing that.  The temp gauge goes to 280 which is above a comfortable
oil temp (my oil temp, in the pan, runs about 210 on a long highway run).
