Last week I was looking for a 75-77 tach to work with the HEI distributor I have in the new 1970 project car. No luck on ebay, no luck on various forums, and several vette junkyards quoted ~$100. I was going to settle for a used automater unit from a friend of mine and mount it to the steering column, but I wasnt happy about it. After nearly giving up all hope, what should appear on craigslist less than 15 minutes from my house? A guy selling the last few parts from a 76 he parted out. The only things left were a door, seats, both wiring harnesses, a few small brackets and things, and this:



After talking with the guy for a while (he still has a 75) he let me have it for almost nothing as long as I brought my car by when I had it running. Anyone need a speedo or a 76 bezel? :laughing:

:partyon:

Greetings from Long Branch NJ....could use a speedo for my 70....is yours similar....
Lee
I am going to keep the speedo currently in my 70. Are you asking about the 76 one or my original 70?


Is the speedo original? I ask because it has kilometers per hour and mph! That would be handy over here!:thumbsup:
Yeah it is original. Are the 75-77 speedo's still gear driven?

How is life down under? Did you ever get your EFI setup running?

Ya never know whats gonna happen. Sometimes craigslist throws you a bone. Last week I picked up a set of side pipes and covers for 40 bucks. Looks like this week was your lucky week. Congrats :thumbsup:

Settling for 629 RWHP must be rough. :crazy::laughing: Im already looking forward to next spring when I can get this car out on the road.

You should post up some pics of your efi setup and of the cruises/race days.

:cheers:

Craigslook shut down

Yeah, Craigslist rocks when you can find something locally. But you want to search all of CL, good luck. That's where someone on DC turned me onto Craigslook.com, an aggregator of CL postings. I could search all of CL for any city to find what I was looking for. Now CL has shut down Craigslook, :down:. I sent CL a "Contact Us" message and let them know of my disapproval.

It wouldn't bother me if CL hired the craigslook programmer to implement this search across all cities, but I'm guessing it won't happen.

I shake my fist at you Craigslist!!!! CURSE YOU
