What year is this speedometer lens ?

Recommended Posts

I found this in my inventory and it was incorrectly labeled as a 42 Dodge Canadian. 

I make all kinds of old car lenses and want to list this for sale but need to confirm what it fits.

I'm leaning towards a '39 Dodge. It may be missing a color in the numbering ?

I sell on eBay as "grandpadodge"

Hi Reg,

Try the Plymouth guys... Looks like a 39 Plymouth layout (as I'm sure you're aware). Definitely more detailed than the standard Plymouths though...

UK or Australian version ?

 

Good luck

Dave

Thanks Dave.  Here's the US '39 Plymouth version that I refinish.

Yeah I know it's a lot different (color and horizontal lines, and tilt of the speed) but because of the layout and the numbers matching the correct location I was thinking it has to be a Plymouth, but what model ?

Guessing something more rare than any other which is why I suggested maybe checking with the Plymouth guys to see if they could shed any light on it. Besides, it may create more interest in the sale if nothing else. Also, try the "What is it" section to see if others may recognize it.


Let us know once you find out for sure. Very curious now..

Again, Good luck !

I found this one image on google and it's entitled 1939 Dodge Canadian so maybe that's it !

Now I'd be curious to know if it fit all Canadian made 1939 Plymouth models or a specific model (my OCD is kicking in)…

Congrats on finding it. 😎
