I was going to post somthing yesterday but didn't because I'm really not sure... however because nobody else has posted, I'll give you my thoughts... it looks like an old aftermarket peice, the most popular brand back in the day being Stewart Warner, makes me belive it may be.. but the absense of the SW symbol leaves doubt in my mind

theres no identifying marks insid either, just another part number (on the inside of the housing itself, and a "tampering or modification of this instument voids warranty" stamp on the plastic internals

it also says "made in the usa" again inside, right next to a rotary 4-6-8 cylinder selector switch , which appears to be hand written (white sticker with a plastic "screw" style selector over it)

ill post inside pics when my photobucket stops being gay

That would be a universal type steering column mounted tach. I had one on my '67 Mustang IIRC. I prolly got it from NAPA in South Holland Ill in about 1972. That is if I'm remembering right.

I agree that it looks like an old after market piece.

The 4-6-8 selector makes that a for sure.

Ha-ha haven't seen one of those in years, I think they still sell them at the local tractor supply warehouse.

As I remember they are terribly inaccurate and very slow to respond to RPM, DO NOT USE for racing!

Not worth anything except for nostalgia, have a look here!

Can't believe they still sell them!
