    Is yours the one that reportedly came from DC/MP??

    Thanks

    The picture above was my picture, and I just took another pic to prove I still have it.

    None were released to DC or anyone else.
    These were proto units snagged up by those paying attention before they hit the garbage can.

    Not to be argumentative, one was advertised a few years back as coming from DC/MP.

    Not as a regular part but one there for evaluation/ discussion and was reportedly liberated in a lunchbox.

    Not saying that was true, just that it was claimed to be.

    No disrespect intended sir.

    Thanks
    Randy

    What you say Randy could well be true also. However, I think that story was made up to cover up the fact that the part was rescued from the trash in the pocket of one of those Ken refers to. This might have been done just to add a little "mystique" and to try to cover their tracks a little. I doubt we will ever know the truth of the matter.

    No offense taken and your comment of "Lunchbox Liberation" was very well received and said

    Why would a Dodge Omni even need a 125 MPH speedo? They can't go that fast can they?

    Mine will hit 6,000 in 5th gear no problem with an A-555

    Yours will probably hit 7,000 with ease!!

    Canadian cars came with a 110 MPH speedo but a Shadow 125 unit fits without much difficulty.

    Actual L body 125 unit is sure nice though!!

    Thanks

    My cut-to-fit "L" body gauge goes to 255MPH, I don't think I'll be maxing it out.

    I don't know who said "DC/MP" but it wasn't me.
