This one has a Pittsburgh Taximeter installed , as was mentioned in Lorin Sorensen's "The Commercial Fords" as being standard equipment.

Default Ford Taxi Meter?

Is this an original (restored obviously) taximeter for the Ford Model A taxis?


With the "Made for Ford Motor Company" (at the bottom of the face) it seems like it would be Model A vintage.

Any insight would be much appreciated,

Yes, your taximeter is the typical Pittsburgh meter used in many of the original Model A Taxis. It looks to be accurately restored. Is it available?
