I am almost finished getting my 69 Rambler roadworthy.  I have been thinking about installing a tach either like an SC/Rambler does on the steering wheel or on the bottom of the dash frame.

Can anyone recommend a good modern one that they have in use now or have used in the past?  And any recommended mounting location preferences?

Thanks.

These kinda look like the original if you put it on the column. If you watch, they have them on sale for around $75 from time to time.

If you need a tool and don't buy it...
you'll eventually pay for it...
and not have it.

I know this isn't modern and this is a horrible example of one but I have always had a real soft spot for the old school RAC tachs.

The difference between people and AMC's is that they will always be making more people; they won't be making more AMC's
