Richard/Kerry do either of you know if a trip meter is especially rare in a '68 Mustang ? (car is a Cali Special). The owner of the car is struggling to find a replacement speedo with trip meter in it.


Flick Sean (BossKraft) an email as I would bet he could find one.

Believe the trip meter was standard on tach cars, "rare" gets tossed around a lot.. they are hard to find in good shape.

Kerry, 8R01C159241

Let me know on the '68 instrument cluster housing.

Thanks

Just thinking, I have a box of old gauges and stuff, I know there are a couple speedos in there, I'll see if one may be a spare trip odometer one this weekend..

It's not a tach car so maybe it is an unusual setup.

If you don't mind looking to see if you have one that'd be great. The guy has located a standard speedo but it would be nice to keep the car original. It's the Acapulco Blue GT/CS that you looked at when you were over here some time back.


Rick.

Old things amuse all minds.

Not in there, jumps from 158997 to 159336. I guess a lot more were discovered once Kevin got his data base up & running ........

Paul Newitt continued to collect info for a long time, thus the second edition (which is a really nice book).

I also have the second edition, individually numbered with plaque, very nice and fantastic source of facts. You'd need to go to cobranda or Paul Newitt's site (I did that because I wanted a specific number in the book plaque).

I have a tach dash and trip meter.

Continued prep before paint, a good few hours yesterday removing some spray on goo the PO added to the trunk. I guess the plus is it may have helped keep rust away...

Before







After







Next, strip engine bay and finish removing old vinyl roof glue...

my car had goo in all the same places, are you sure it was from a previous owner? I think mine had paint over it

Yep, not the seam sealer where there is bare metal now. Over the top of the paint. Some undercoating or other liner spray...

A few hours today with stripper then a pressure wash and some rust converter...







A bit more to finish prep, but pretty happy with the results.
