He also sells them outright. I see him on eBay all the time. He also advertises in Ford Barn Swap Meet.

I use Denny Ellerman. Denny does an excellent job and was one who helped Cushman when he did it. Denny advertising in the Model A News and the Restorer National Magazines.

I had 3 oval speedometers rebuilt by him and has rebuilt a lot of them. You didn't mention whether you need a round or oval style, as 1930's used both types. You might send him a message via eBay. I believe he will rebuild you speedometer or give you a core credit.

PapaNick has a fantastic turn around on his speedometer work. Mine was mailed back to me the same day he received it.

Thanks all I have spoken with Papanick. I'll be sending out my speedometer Monday. I'll bet he does great work and he seems like a really good guy. Thanks again, oh sorry to take so long getting back. Life has a way of changing ones plans.

I’m with Bill on this one. Second speedo can only be for the backseat driver.

Hey Bill,

My wife uses our Garmin GPS to keep track of my speed, and she's in the front seat.

My GPS is easier to read and is more accurate than the speedometer.

It might be one of those funny Model A/s that can do 80 MPH all day long.

When the first speedo pegs out at 75, the second one takes over.
