Another mislabeled Studebaker part - "vintage studebaker truck speedometer streetrod.ratrod". Never seen anything close to this in a Studebaker truck (at least a stock one).

With that mileage on the odometer it must be NOS. Wasn't it used in the '57 T-cab?[:o)]

Not sure about any truck, but the '56 Champ two door has one. ;)

And it's a real joy to watch it rotate and change colors when driving! [8D]

Remember that Champ Truck on ebay, it had a custom Interior with a compass in that housing and a stock Speedo in the dash! I asked him if it had two speedos and he explained that! [:0]

Don't believe any R or E series trucks used a cyclops eye speedometer, unless an owner did a custom retrofit![:0];). The one option I was always curious about was the "Traffic Light Viewer" SP-50055[?][?]

Traffic light viewers look like a fluted lens on the top of the dash. Its purpose was to let you wiew the traffic lights if you had a front windsheild visor.

So, picking up on another post from a couple of days ago, these would be good for the tall guys who complained about the windshield height of a C-Cab truck.;)[^]

Yes Rich, that was my old 8E12 that sported that speedo. Why? Well, my INTENT was to utilize BOTH pod holes in the Champ's dash for speakers - STEREO speakers. I had a boom box radio/tape player rigged in that truck and I was going to drive those twin dash speakers with that unit. For reason of time and money, it never totally developed.
However - in anticipation of the mod, I'd mounted that Speedo on the dash for when I DID get around to it.

I have bought two of these so far off e-bay hoping to get one with a good decal(mph). So far both have been just ok. Does anyone repo this paper decal????

There are still NOS speedo heads out there, Ken. I saw several in SB this year.;)

Edit: I looked this up on SASCO's site PN. 1545452 shows available for $104.70. Compare that to a speedo head for a late model car!:D

Based on experience/observation, I can tell you that that type of speedometer does not wrap around to 125 and then start at zero again. It is just made to look like it will.

Mike observes: "That one looks nothing like my 57. Then again, nothing looks like my 57."

What are you talking about, Mike? The speedo that's the topic of this post is out of a '56 sedan, but the innards fit 57 & 58 sedans too. They just sport a different housing.[^]

I think Mike was referring to the fact that his Transtar has a "Hawk" dash![:0] If it's the one I saw at StudeRich's place.
