original or repop gauges?
« on: May 23, 2017, 03:19:02 PM »
Can anyone identify if these are real or repop. I believe they have been in the car for at least 20 years.

I'm not an expert but the fuel gauge looks a little off.

Here's an original U16 fuel gauge that I have:

Yeah I agree the font looks wrong on the center mounted fuel gauge.

I also thought the fuel gauge looked different. I just found a thread on repop speedos, it looks like mine is a repop the 130 mark is above the odometer window.

Can you look at the back of them? There are inspection marks and/or date codes on originals. Here are my speedo and tach for examples.
