Hello again ever body ,im almost done with the 25 year old on going restoration of my 69 fasback .Im reaching out to you guys ,im looking for a deluxe tach dash cluster ,ive missed a few in the past 4-5 years at swap meets and on ebay,just missed out on one through ebay this week end again.Does any body out there have one that does not cost 1000.00 dollars .I know it will cost some money but if i spend money for one i would like to know if its even repair-able.Most of these are big bucks and they cant tell you any thing about it .HELP
Will post this so the group can see it (and weigh in) I have a 69 deluxe set, (it is different than a 70) with the wiring harness. It was removed from a (mach I?) in the 80s. It is complete, there are no cut wires on the tach, I haven't followed out the underdash harness to see if it has cuts but I don't think it does. (nonetheless I was going to send it to midlife for refurbishment). I was told it works (yeah I know- but it was from an old man locally that has a parts stash (shhhh) and everything else I have bought was legit and as stated. I was gonna use it in the vert- but the car is too nice to go messing with (and its an automatic). I do not know how to test the tach w/o installing. Should alan t like this idea- (or if he finds another) can this be tested on a bench? What would the VMF think a fair price would be for the tach and wiring. (alant- I gave you a price in the PM- if the VMF says less I will drop the price- if its more- I will honor my lower price until say Friday 12-14-12)
Ok- checked the cluster- Dark walnut woodgrain- date Feb 6 1969, orig plastic circuit still on it. Trip odometer, speedo reads 56k (56, 156 IDK)
Extra bonus: I have the underhood harness in addition to the underdash harness- again though I would send these to midlife or someone (unless you want to chance installing and possibly uninstalling/reinstalling)
