Brian, that sounds great! The photo Dom showed in post #27 shows a metric speedometer with Imperial units on the inside ring. I didn't realize it at the time he posted the photo but this must be a modified unit. It either has been re-printed or has an overlay.

I just followed the link provided to see if the speedometer had been modified and if the modification was described or not and realized on the speedometer Dom posted -the link was for a very nice looking Montreal that was for sale.

There was another speedometer photo in the link -that makes me think this has an overlay applied to the speedometer plastic screen cover. I can't tell if it was applied inside or outside the clear plastic screen but outside would be much easier to apply.

This is functional but not quite as aesthetically pleasing as the above speedometer modification.
