6 volt tachometers are available and they did make 6 volt tachometers during that time period, but for a simple testing/repair unit, Westach would be a good option.

I bought a cheap electronic tachometer that works on 6 volts on Amazon or something like that. It was about $50 and uses an internal battery and an inductive lead that you clip on a spark plug wire. It's not permanent but it'll give you an idea of engine speed while you drive. It's kind of a piece of crap and sometimes doesn't work, but I used it while testing my overdrive unit on my '29 Cadillac.
