I am looking for a 51 Commander Speedometer. I need the tumbler as the numbers are peeling off mine. I have a good body, glass and chrome ring. Just looking for the insides.

Have you looked at similar years, both in Champion and Commander? The "tumblers" as you call them are probably the same for many years.

Or, you could simply reproduce the strips of numbers and re-glue them to the rollers. Gary Ash has a "how to" article he produced when he did this to his M5.

The numbers appear identical to those used in trucks starting in 1950.
