  • Anyone's truck have one of these?

    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?[)]

        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.
