140 MPH SPEEDOMETER

Recommended Posts

I HAVE AN EARLY 1963 R1 AVANTI

THE SPEEDO READS 140 MPH

A FRIEND HAS AN EARLY R2 AVANTI AND THE SPEEDO READS 140

MY 57 GH READS 160

ANOTHER FRIENDS 56 GH READS 160

WHY THE LOWER MPH ON THE EARLY CARS./. WAS GRANATELLI NOT YET A T BONNEVILLE

WOULD HAVE THOUGHT STUDE EXECS WOULD WANT HIGHER MPH TO ATTRACT RACER TYPES?

Not sure why but maybe it wasn't available yet.

My R2 had the 140mph speedo as well.

WHAT NUMBER IS YOUR CAR

160 MPH WERE AVAILABLE AS I MENTIONED

IF YOUR CAR IS EARLY ITS LIKELY THEY PUT IN A 140

SOMEBODY OUT THERE WILL KNOW

My 63R3487 - R2 has a 160mph, I am not sure when the transition took place though.

That's an interesting question.....One would think ALL Stude Avantis would have been equipped with a 160 speedo from the get-go!

(Even my 1955 President Speedster has a 160 speedometer....and it's only 259 powered!:o)

My 64 Daytona R1 4 spd had a tach and a 160 mph speedometer.  Funny an R2 wouldn’t.  Mike

i AM 1355 AND i KNOW 1458..THEY ARE BOTH 140

THESE ARE EARLY CARS AND I THINK THAT IS THE REASON

I HOPE WE CAN FIND SOME SERIAL #S WHERE WE SEE WHEN THEY SWITCHED

MY 57 GH HAS A 160 MPH SPEEDO AND IT WAS PRODUCED 6 YEARS PRIOR!

My R2 Avanti, 63R2302, has a 160 speedo. Built 26 December, 1962. At least they got Christmas Day off!
