Default 57 speedometer

Hi All,
Anyone know of where to have a speedometer rebuilt for a 57 Ford Fairlane 500 or buy one?
Thanks in advance.

Have you tried an internet / google search for dash gauge repair shops?
There are several in Phoenix, but haven't used them since I don't live there.
Here are a couple examples...
https://www.rsgaugeworks.com/

https://www.dicksspeedotach.com/clas...e-restoration/

I've heard of these folks too...
https://williamsons.com/

It won't hurt to contact any of them, discuss what you have and request an estimate.

I recently bought a NOS Stewart Warner speedo for my '54 Ranch Wagon from Speedometer Service in Colorado Springs, Co
https://www.speedoservice.com/
Rusty went through it before shipping it to me since it had been sitting on the shelf for a while. Can't say enough good things about them. If he doesn't have one to sell you I'm sure he can repair the one you have. Worth a phone call, IMO.

Hop over to the 57Fordsforever web site and ask around there.

Are you looking for new, used, or restored?

Looking for one that works well, does not have to be new or restored.

There was a speedometer shop in Michigan - I think - that rebuilt my '54 Ford Mainline speedometer about 15 years ago. They did a great job. I'll look through my receipts and see if I can find the name of the place. In the meantime, you might use the info I've provided so far to google search.
