Hello to the community,

today I come with a special problem.

My 61 has a speedometer with the scale in Km/h.

Unfortunately the glass cracked.

As spares are only glasses availeble scaled in mph.

Now i try to bold one from scratch.

But for the engravings i better now what is the correct font for the numbers.

Is out there anyone who knows details, or can name the origin manufacture that i can contact them?

Thank You for reply.

If no luck here, check with the Ford groups in South America.

Thank you for this information. I tried to find out but with no success.

I have to go the long run.

We rebuilt the numbers. I hope it comes out correct, on screen it looks good.

Hello,

we had no chance and had to do it complete ourselves.

This is the result. It came much more better out as I expected. There is no difference to the original glas but the material is much better and will not crack anymore.

When I sit now behind the steering wheel it is a pleasure, with the cracked glas it was kind of boring. Another step to a fine car.

Wow! You do nice work, Wolfgang. The numbers are beautiful and the lens looks like it came on the car when it was new. - Dave

I agree Dave and if I ever need to have mine done I will certainly know where to go:Dl Very well done.
