Avanti speedometers...


Recommended Posts

Several years ago, a good friend of mine purchased a beautiful, low mileage silver 1980 Avanti ll...The car was PERFECT.....Except it came equipped with an 85 MPH speedo which he didn't care for, so he purchased a 160 version directly from Avanti Motors and had it installed. He kept that Avanti several years.

The Federally mandated 85 mph speedo was an exercise of futility. No one driving then listened to big brother and held the speeds down during that time. I wonder how many speedos were pegged and broken from extreme excess of the 85 top end.
