1966 9k tach
« on: March 15, 2018, 04:26:01 PM »
Hi,

I came across this tach and was wondering where it came from.  Then 9k tach's I see online looks different on the backside.  Is this a service replacement from 1968 (date code suggests that)?

Thx!

I cant say what service variety it is but I can say it is not one that was used on production 66 GT 350's.

The best use of this tach is the bezel for fixing a 66 GT350 tach bezel.  I believe this tach is also an in dash, not with a cup on the back side for a dash mount.

I had a 68? I think, cobra tach out of a torino cobra, but it is identical to the 66 tach except for the three prong mounting bracket in place of the cup. phred

I saw a faria 68 tac that had the same type of back with the same 10008 stamping, so maybe someone swapped the front bezel and gauge to a different back?  The 68 faria had a cup as well but had a different mounting bracket.
