    I have one in a box about two feet from me, but it has a little (1cm long, I just measured) scratch on the top lip. It came in a box with my 78, and was pulled from a 76 in supposedly working order, that why the previous owner pulled it before he scrapped his 76. It's yours if you want to pay the shipping. I'll weigh it right now to let you know about how much it will cost. Welcome to the club!



    -Okay, it weighs 1lb, 13.4oz. I'm not sure how to calculate shipping, it usually does it automatically when I sell on Ebay, after I weigh it.

    Let me know!

    I also have one in my garage that came from a '77. I bought a complete gauge set from a guy on Ebay, claims everything works fine but the clock. I got them for the tach more than anything else but got the whole set for around $11 plus shipping, couldnt pass it up. Im in Cincinnati, pay the postage and its yours. Welcome to the club.

    I'm great at taking my Z apart, putting it back together has been a whole different story.

    I you have a 75, you want a speedometer from a 75-76. A 77-78 speedometer has an extra pin in the connector when compared to a 75-76 speedo and a 75-76 speedo has an extra connector for the resistor so they aren't interchangable. Basically, two plugs-early, one plug-late. Compare these scans:

    Thanks for the tech info. I had found one out of a 78 and thought it would be the same. I'm glad I didn't get it.
