Vintage Dash Mileage Kilometer Counter VW Reproduction
This listing is for a reproduction Vintage Dash Mileage Kilometer Counter VW Reproduction. These early German (1953 – 1970) were dash mounted and quite often used with early Volkswagens and other European vehicles that didn’t have gas gauges.
I make these from a mold taken from an original disassembled counter. The original counter had a white counter shroud with black base and number wheels featuring white numbers.
These are quite labor intensive to make. There are 15 individual pieces that make up this counter. The number wheels are hand done as well as the script on the counter shroud. These can be mounted with a piece of thin, adhesive backed magnetic material like is used for business cards. I haven’t been to a swap meet in a while but I’m sure these aren’t spotted very often. I’ll only be making a few of these so get one while you can.
