    Really? No one knows?

    It looks too good to be original I think. Any pics I could find did not have the same pattern on the face. The layout looks "newer". Also, every pic i found had the odometer at the bottom?

    yes the one is New York is the one I had committed to buy but as you can see it is not the same.

    I also have a pic from a collectors showcase in Seattle that had four Whizzer speedos lined up and none of them looked like the one above.

    The odometer is in a different place and the layout of the numbers is totally different.

    I wonder if this is a repop from around 2000?

    $75.00 is about the price of a new model Whizzer Speedo. If that was original and in that condition it would easily sell for 10 times that much.

    The vintage original 80 MPH Whizzer speedometer is approx worth $800.00 to $1200.00.

    The unit is a re-pop, and won't even be close to the original [made by Stewart Warner].

    I would suggest you consider the purchase as the current new edition speedometer are no longer available, and are now considered RARE.

    Have fun,
