Harry Warburton in NC did mine. Very good work! Fast turnaround (one week) and VERY fairly priced.

I had mine done at Williamson's in Chester, Arkansas.
Ron and Sandra Beliles do a fantastic job. Cannot beat them.

I had Harry Warburton in No. Carolina refurbish mine; fair price, quick turnaround and excellent work. Had a little problem with it after I got it back and they fixed it and reimbursed me for the shipping charges to send it back to them. I strongly recommend them!

On the top of this forum there is a link;

Model A/AA Ford Websites...Can YOU add to the list?"

It has a list of Fordbarn member recommendations for Model A stuff. Here is the Speedometer section;

SPEEDOMETERS
1. www.cushmanspeedometer.com (Chris) Cushman Corporation Speedometer Repair (Kansas)
2. No known website: Chuck Bertschi (972)-231-5019 (Texas)
3. No known website: Harry Warburton (252)-258-1530/(252)-752-4098 (N. Carolina)
4. No known website: Bills Speedo Shop (937)-492-7800 (Ohio)
5. No known website: Norm's Antique Auto Supply (563)-322-8388 or (563)-320-2096 (Iowa)

Steve Plucker keeps up this list with all the other stuff he does it would not surprise me if he has missed a couple.

Not a very accurate List!

1. Cushman has sold his Model A Speedometer business.
2. Chuck and Nancy have retired.
5. Norm has passed away.

Chris Cushman's model A speedometer business was purchased by me, Mark Nelson. I can handle any repairs from simple servicing to complete restorations. For service jobs my turn around time is typically 2 days, for complete restorations, I have units in stock available on an exchange basis. If you need any other information, please visit my website www.marksspeedometer.com .

All of my restored units come with a 2 year warranty.
