Yes, It has KM on it, It came from a wrecked car on the Gold Coast.
It looks Just like the original ones, but was intentionally made for KM.
Humm.... an export model which was imported again ? ( I have the plates some where if this will help on the export thing)
Could it be posible that they were made in the 70s as an aftermarket Holden metric update for countries that required it by law or import specs ? '

I seen one of these speedos at a swap meet a couple of years ago, the bloke told me it was for an export model, it also had a clock in the dash.

Yeah they were fitted to Holdens exported to South Africa or other countries that were metric at the time. It's an interesting piece with the clock too, are you selling it??

Cheers

No.
Unless you want to be really really silly.

Funny that it was reimported....probably not. ? The car had a heater and HP motor and had been played with. Commie seats and Tbar etc.

Yer Yer, I told you you were pushy.

THey told me Friday and I find they will be thursday. I don't rush them as I don't want them to bodge them.
I rang up about some stickers and the sticky people are getting back to me if that will save me.

Or you could come and pick the stuff up yourself, get off ya butt.
