    **** SOLD ****Here is a used early 70s genuine " Chrysler Parts " hood tach in excellent condition. This tach has 3 wires later tachs had 4. It hasent been on a car in years but was working when removed i havent tested it so it will be sold as is. Made by Dixco for the Chrysler Parts division. These are hard to find compared to the generic reproductions commonly found for sale. This has the correct large steel mounting nut and 2 small anti spin screws not the plastic mounting nut and phillps screws. The light is mounted behind the bezel which was found on early tachs later models had the light in the rear of the housing.

    I just bought that 4spd for console which wasn't cheap but I talkto the boss into it. And would like to buy plots Duster to restore for my one daughter. My wife is going to lose it. But I'll try.I'll think of something. It would free up a indash tach spot and make room for a clock or a performance guage. See if its still here by the end of the week.

    One question. Is there room to move on that? Yes or no?

    :eek:ops:

    Early tachs had 4 wires; later tachs had only 3 wires!


    The tach you are showing is a 1975 Tach with 3 wires and round plugs.

    1973-1974 tachs had also 3 wires with quadrathic plugs.

    Usually, the tach with 3 wires and round plugs, don't have the blue silk screened Chrysler logo, they had the white pentastar.

    Holly Bank Accounts Batman! I'm going with a new OER from Jegs and putting my own Penstar on it for $240.00ish. Very nice for the hard core #'s guys.

    My N.O.S Chrysler Parts hood tach which is still in its original box has a date code of Oct 1972 it has 3 wires. Thats a early tach in my experience later tachs had 4 wires but i could be wrong either way my 3 hood tachs are all early 70s manufactered.

    Dixco Tachs are tested trough the Hot Rod magazine in 1969. They talk about 4 connecting wires. You can also see the 4 wires on the pictures:

    That’s correct. The Mopar Hood Tach is a genuine Dixco unit in very good condition. It’s a rare part of history.

    The price is justified. Keep in mind; you have to pay up to the triple price for a NOS one. The last one I saw on eBay was a 2000 USD tach.

    It’s very hard to find an original Mopar one, it can take years!

    Yes, I sold a NOS Mopar Tach to a HEMI owner.

    I still have a display cabinet full of NOS tachs. Many Mopar's, Dixco’s, Ford, Balkamp, Strandix, Alpesa …

    Probably, I will sell to a later date a second one.

    A small view:

    Why, you don’t buy the tach from TX9 4-spd Demon ?

    It is a great tach in perfect condition. The price is more than fair. My NOS tachs are not so cheap. :yawinkle:
