66 mustang rally pac

Hi,i have been looking at some rally pacs for my mustang and have noticed that there are some differences between some of them.I was wondering what kind would be best for a coupe mustang and if i got a reproduction what is the best one to get on a budget.All i want it for is for the rpm gauge,is there another way to get this cheaper?Thanks in advance for all help.

You could buy a tach from sun pro for much less money. Rally pac is more for show- although I have one for my 64.5 convertible (scott drake re-production). If you want one be prepared to spend upwards of $300, and the one you would want for your '66 is the low profile model. I have one, I thought it was worth the extra expense. John

6 cylinder cars also got a 6000 rpm tach.

The Rally Pac is a very cool touch, and you'd be surprised how much use you'll get from a clock that works.


Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

Plus they look GREAT in these cars. I'm planning to replace the clock in mine with a fuel pressure gauge.

Really? In the long run the clock will be more useful. I use it more than the tach.

I would agree on the clock thing. Tach is a little hard to read and I go mostly by the sound when really punching the vert. They just look good.

Yes. I think I recall seeing a repro at CJ or NPD. There's also a homemade thread here on VMF.

I found one Scott Drake makes. Doesn't what EXACTLY the size gauge fits, but it says when using 2 5/16 gauges, it needs modification. So I'm not sure if that's the size you can only use, or something smaller. http://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-dra...5-1968/p/RPHS/

Naw, he needs one of these. You can't see the numbers
on a Rally Pac...... they're too small.

+++1 on 22GT, I really got used to having a clock in my "modern" cars and really
missed it in my 64.5. I have a SD unit, it has worked great since I put it in 2 years ago, and the clock keeps perfect time. The SD unit looks great and is a snap to
install. Be aware the illumination is white and will not match your stock blue
type dash lights. I do not consider this a big deal, some people do.

Hey Leon. What size do you have? I didn't see any 2 5/16 clock gauges. Also did you have to modify it? If so, what did you have to do?
