Late 60's-Early 70's Veglia Borletti Gauges

I'm looking to mimic the style of late 60's-early 70's Veglia Borletti automotive gauges. I remember them most fondly from a Lancia Fulvia, but Ferrari Dinos used gauges with the same font. It's been suggested that the numerals and text are not the same font, I'm not sure if that's true.

I'm interested in the labels and numerals, not the small "Veglia Borletti" wordmark.

A typeface that gets you very close (you'll have to manually condense the numerals and expand the letters in some instances to match your samples) is Radiant:

(Originally designed by Robert Hunter Middleton for the Ludlow Foundry in 1938.)

URW Imperial is also similar:

As is Euro Sans:

Radiant is very close. I can pick apart letterforms, but it nails the feel.

Thanks!
