If your Mustang was an export model (like mine) it may have a KPH speedo. In that case the numbers go to 220. (If I remember correctly)

You are right :D 

 

I can use the whole bandwith too but with a 3.50 gear in the rear my RPMs are not as German-Autobahn-friendly as yours for our engines... :P

 

My resto has restarted a few weeks before and is moving good along. On monday I took a lot of small parts to a professional paint stripper for stripping and prime them and some to paint. At the moment I have stripped almost all parts and prepped them for primer by myself. Only the drivers door need some metal works all other is done. After sanding the body with 240 grit and some other small things I will begin with primer and filler, then blocking and giving it all for final paint to a professional.

Hi Tim and Juergen

I have a 72 Mach 1 Q Code 4 speed in the US that I plan to import to Germany when I finally return there.  It is good condition and hopefully will not encounter any TUV issues - any tips from you would be much appreciated.  The body is very solid with no rust and all mechanicals are good.  I am just replacing all the seat belt webbing at the moment.  I am planning to take out the 4 speed (which I'll keep) before I ship and replace with the Tremec 5 speed which is a bolt in conversion with no cutting needed - and which will make it more autobahn friendly.  

I would love to be able to track down a correct KMH speedometer so if you ever hear of one anywhere let me know please.

When I do return to Germany I'll be sure to let you know.

Cheers

Nigel
