Nope, an aftermarket accessory.

If you guys look real closely you will realize Brian only posted this to prove his Rambler will go 47 MPH.

You guys have no idea how right you are! Really, unless you have had something like this you have no idea. I have "raced" cars that aren't racing me, we are talking some woman in a minivan full of kids, and she beats me! I am winding the hell out of it and she is pulling away with just normal acceleration. LOL, but I love Marge, she is a good car. I have a tire smoker in the garage, I don't need to prove anything.

I know, everyone loves Marge. I remember when I was a kid I could never have driven this car, it is just way too underpowered. Now, heck, I don't care, I'm wearing cargo pants and as my kids call it, my "Old mans coat". So what the heck, I jumped off the fashion train a long time ago.

I don't see any zeros after the numbers, are you sure it will go 47 MPH?

Maybe the needle has been stuck there since 1961?

LOLOL, yep, 4 miles per hour is more like it! LOLOL

Dave, no it's not stuck, I promise, it does move. It just doesn't go much higher than that for some reason. No kidding, I had it out on the freeway one day at 60 and it sounded like it was going to blow sky high.
