MARTINSR Come on now guys, this feature allowed you to be short or tall and still see the speedo perfectly.

MARTINSR And I do not think that is a 60 Buick speedo you guys posted. Not unless my mom's car had an option that isn't there. I don't know, I know it was a 60 and it was a LeSabre four door I believe. It had a very odd feature on the speedo.

What was the super odd thing about the speedo. GON'T GOOGLE IT!

I'm not sure if any other of the GM line used them.

This one's a '57 Pontiac.

MARTINSR Don't have a clue but I'll bet it's funny with no relation to a tach or something like you would think.

What was a "Redliner" and what was it used for? Please show a picture of one if you can.

I'm not sure if it was offered as a accessory or just came standard on certain models. The term "Redliner" was taken from ta GM sales brochure. I had one on one of my own cars and never knew it proper name.

No takers?
