1951 Ford Speedometer

Recommended Posts

I have a nice '51 Ford Speedometer for sale.  This came to me used, from a garage clean-out of a former Ford dealer.  I did the following:

 

  • cleaned
  • correctly lubed
  • new green and red mylar for the turn signal and bright indicators
  • calibrated
  • reset odometer

 

See pictures for calibration compromise (about 62 mph indicated, vs. 60 actual, and 28 indicated vs. 30 actual - typical compromise!)

 

$120 plus shipping

Anyway If it is the same for a 1949 I will buy it. My 49 is in storage about 75 miles away from my home so I can't just walk out and look at it. But if my memory is good enough I think it looks the same.

Thanks Again,

Hi Jeff,

 I did some investigating here on the web. Darn it, mine is different. Close but no cigar. My gages are located around the outside where yours are more in the middle. Do you work on speedometers? Mine needs recalibrated.

I agree with you Jake, this one is specifically for a '51.

 

I would recommend Bill's Speedometer for your calibration needs.

I would like to move this speedometer out of the basement, and prefer dealing with an AACA member.
