Help identifying French 1960s speedo

Post by oac_steam »

Hi all,

I bought this lovely speedo today from an antiques fair and am really struggling to identify it. The seller told me it was made by a French manufacturer and was brought to the UK only last week.

My first guess was Citroen, but it looks as though Jaeger also made speedos to suit Peugeot’s, so any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers
Ollie

Halfway down the posts on this page from A Panhard Forum you will find a speedo exactly the same as yours.
From a Panhard Dyna.

The Dyna doesn't sound that great on this video by Brightwells for the auction!

The numbers on it immediately reminded me of 1950's American radio tuning dials.

A lot of woodworm in your floorboards (Not the car) :)
