70 vs 71-2 Speedometer Differences

by George Nenadovich


On the left is a 71-2 Skylark speedometer with speed-alert.....on the right is the early, Sept 1969-Jan 1970, speedometer with pointed lens. The big difference not noticed immediately is the size/height of the numbers....the 1970 numbers are much larger.



This is a good picture showing why the pointed lenses were changed to flat lenses in January 1970...too much glare/reflection made reading the speedometer difficult. Also, notice high beam headlight indicator is red.....later versions are blue.
