Take a look at these two I have on eBay.

I know the gauge face won't work as they are 62-65 Chevy II, Nova, Acadian but the head on the back might be the same.

Thanks folks, going to wait till I pull out the speedo, I've replaced the stripped drive gear in trans, speed only went up to 30mph, [knew I was at 60 by tach] then stuck at 20 when stopped, eventually dropped to zero then never worked again????

Both gears look good?

What if you would pull the cable off at the trans, stick a drill on and try it?

 Yes, your cable may not have been seated all the way into the speedo, if you are lucky.

 

I think the odometer numbers are reproduced.

What transmission do you have?

Shipping by Fedex (never UPS) works very good from the US.
