Does anyone have a photo of the tag that goes on the Glovebox of a Champ with the 5-speed tranny?

I don't know if you are looking for the Info on it or the location of it, but here is both:

78104 78105 So does this mean that Floor Shift Champ you just bought was unbeknownst to the seller, a 5, O.D.? ... Score! :!:

StudeRich, In your photo of the tag location is that a cyclopes
speedometer on the dash?

I noticed that too. Very interesting idea. Especially if you are looking to add more gauges to the instrument cluster.

Clunk, SASCO used to have them new for sale. I assume SI would now have them.

Yes that Truck has a '57 Sedan/Wagon Speedometer along with many other little "personal touches" one of the several owners have installed on this nice 8E12-122 3/4 Ton Champ, and I believe it USED TO belong to Bob Kabchef (Roscomacaw) in Central Calif. a very LONG time ago.

Thank you, the first pic is exactly what I was looking for. :!!:

In answer to your question, I don't know yet. All I do know is that the indicators are there. I did mention the possibility to the current/previous owner and he was interested. There are two screws on the Glove Box exactly where this tag should go. The screws are still there. However, I don't know why the tag is missing. It's possible the transmission was swapped out, for whatever reason, to a four speed. The transmission looks a lot like a four-speed I have in Fawn Lodge. But then, I wouldn't know a 5-speed if it dropped on my head. I wanted the pic to see what the shifting pattern was so when I am up there next time, I could mess around and see what, was what.

​Thanks again.
