496CHEVY3100 Are you looking for color change, I had a 61 Plymouth years ago that had the ribbon speedometer when it reached 120 it would change from red to black at zero but would keep showing the speed.

MARTINSR Nope, not what I am after.

496CHEVY3100 My dad had a buick with 2 pointers one for speedometer and 1 for speed reminder and it was adjustable.
the pointer not the cluster.

boothboy Well I had to search it out. Pretty slick.

05-23-2017 11:30 AM
MARTINSR Nope it didn't move at all.

boothboy The speedo cluster was adjustable.

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.

MARTINSR That speedo caught my eye.

OH damn that brought back a memory as my mom had a 60 Buick.

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

HOLY CRAP do I remember this and it was so friggin cool, odd.

boothboy Bubba got the last one but it's probably open to anyone at this point.

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


1955 Buick Super
Those look a lot like the speedometer in my 69 Lincoln.
