Update to the great speedo debate of 2019- Well, it seems I have a bit of egg on my face. A couple of people previously contacted me and gave their opinion that there was a sticker affixed to the speedo.I took a very close look yesterday under bright light and I can see that a factory made plate was mounted to the front of the speedometer.There is a small cutout at the top of the plate and the very top of the "5" and "0" at the 50 MPH mark are just visible behind....so the original speedometer ( in miles) is present and accounted for behind this plate.
So, correct mileage is currently 44,800 miles...not kilometers. Please do not contact me to say "I told you so" , but if you are interested in a very stock 100% rust free collectable truck that has gone just 1000 MILES FOR EACH YEAR IT HAS EXISTED , please contact me.
