Odometer turning numbers on left side
#1
OK has this hapened to anyone? The numbers are turning on the left instead of the right hand side. The trip odometer is turning correctly.

Sounds like someone was messing with the odometer. Is this the one your dad just bought?

Yes it is. But the dash hasn't been apart it happened first on the test drive. Then it started doing it again today. The Title from 1997 read 34000 miles. That is when the father bought it from his son.

I would take that car to a reputable speedometer shop....I bet it has been tampered with. They would be able to tell. I worked for a Ford dealer in the 70's, I can tell you the odometers did get turned back routinely.

Nice! The car was owned by the owner of the local Ford Dealership, when he sold it to the guy he didn't sell through the dealership. I wonder if they messed with it back in 73?

I have a decent speedometer I picked up as a part of a group of parts if you need it.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

That is what Dad was afraid of. He scared the owner on the test drive. Which I find hard to believe, since he never drives fast, at least not these days.
