I went to the border just now and picked up my Christmas present that I bought myself off ebay.

Just in time for Christmas!

I'm thinking the face must have been renewed, the colours are brilliant.

My thought exactly Rog, I think it will be sitting in that cup. Either that or the NOS head I got a few weeks ago.

This one was an ebay accident. I didn't want someone to steal it and I ended up with it!

The camera isn't playing fair, the green really stands out in real life. It must be the angle.

i have three 66 tachs that i will  trade for 65, and just to make you feel better none of the original units that work are all that accurate compared to a aftermarket tach

That explains the price then. I felt it was worth more than what I paid. This was not my high bid that got it. I was actually pleasantly surprised when I saw that I won it.

It's not impossible that I will resell it, depending on a few things. I'll try to remember to contact you before I list it.

From your point of view is the only difference between a 65 tach and a 66 tach the printed redline?

I would vote "yes" to that, at least as far as exterior goes.

Anyone else?

Yay or Nay?

I know we've been through this discssuion before but i was more wondering what 65 wagon meant by 65 tachs as opposed to 66 tachs.

I think the consensus was that early 65 tachs had no printed redline whereas late 65 and 66 did.

dont get me wrong i do like the looks of the 66 but i think most of my cars are early 65s thus the green tach, its hard to tell because our registry isnt around to check. i still dont like to trust, these things, you hit a bump the tach wonders, temperature affects them, i drive the cars year round except the rag, i dont like to over rev these things. im coverting one non working tach with new internals see how that goes.

the 65 GTOs have the same thing, early 65s are all green and late have redlines, i believe the info is out there now that they know what date or close to it they went to a redline..

ill say this, ive seen 20 times the numer of all green to redline..not sure why
