1965 1966 Pontiac Factory Tach For Sale


I have mixed emotions about selling this! I bought this tach a few months tach thinking I would keep it for a spare for my car. It actually is for a 1965 (the numbers on the face should have a redline on it beginning in late 1965 production and all of 1966 production).

I've probably owned about 8 of these tachs over a few decades and this is easily the nicest one I've ever had. The cup is in exceptional condition. It's weakness is not pitting like they normally are, rather it has a couple of weird stains on the chrome. I haven't tried, maybe they would polish out, I don't know. The colours on the face are very nice for a 57 year old tachometer. The wiring had been cut, both the wire to the coil and the wire to the light power. I extended both of those using solder and heat shrink, then the non-sticky wire wrap that GM used on wiring in the 60's. The light wire has the piggyback connector that plugs into the fusebox and another light wire can plug into it, so it doesn't use up a space in the fusebox. I don't know why the bezel on it looks so bad in the first picture, in real life it looks beautiful! Chrome always seems to look like crap when you take closeups under bright lights!

The best part is, the tach works! I hooked it up to my car this afternoon and did a short video of it (see below). I've bought these in the past and some of them didn't work, but this one does. 

These have been selling lately for much more than I'm asking, but I don't want to use ebay. Currently ebay has one listed for $1295 US (restored), also one for $822 US (without the cup), one for $895 US with a pitted cup, and so on. You get the idea. 

I am looking for $850 Canadian including postage. (Insurance optional) It will be WELL packaged for shipping. 

Serious buyers please contact me via private messaging. If I'm going to sell this I'd like it to go to a good home here on Canadian Poncho. If it doesn't sell here I will have to decide if I advertise it on US Pontiac sites or tuck it in a corner.

Those things are a work of art! Definitely the most attractive tach on a car I have seen. Should go quick.

If I didn't already have the repop tach in my 65, I would pony right up for it. It sure is nice.

These things are bound to increase in value.

Sell your repro piece and buy this one. There's some special pricing for CP members who have a good home for it!

As they say on ebay, "this item is no longer for sale", it's going to a good home!
