« on: April 06, 2011, 07:58:06 PM »
Hi All        Can anyone tell me if there was a model of 67 camaro that came with a 160 mile speedo? My ragtop has a 120 mi one but i just picked up a 160  that i belie ve came in a firebird.  I may install it if it came in a camaro. Thanks Jimbo

No Camaro came with a 160 MPH speedometer.  Your car would have the 120.

 Correct, no 1st gen came with one.   My 2009 V6 CTS goes to 160 but I haven't attemped to see how fast it will go.  ;D

I just thought it very humorous that his 6 cyl had a 160 mph as it would be lucky to go 90.  The thinking at the time was they had those for the Z28's.
