They didn't make a 140 speedo for the R body. They had a 125 speedo like the M body for the Police Package cars.

85 mph speedo looks funny in a car with a gen 2 hemi under the hood. 125 mph is more in line -150 would be nice but no such animal.Lol

A Gen 2 Hemi?
I need to see pictures.

I can see a 140km speedometer as a possibility.

No, I'm sorry I don't have one for sale. I do see them pop up on ebay occasionally though. I agree, the 85 mph looks hideous.

Maybe look for a Canadian one in kilometers? Or possibly get a decal to place over the existing housing. Even though the speed limit might be 65, you do get an occasion to hit 130. ;)

Yeah but if you have occasion to hit it, do you really need to know? I mean the first thing the cop always says is;"do you know why I stopped you?, and the second is do you have any idea how fast you where going?"
I'd like rather not to have to say 135.
But maybe,I guess, that's just me.
Besides, we go 100/110 all the time......KPH

I think we're just going for a better, cooler look here with the speedometer. I doubt he's trying to get out on the road and peg it.

Others might be of help, but not me.

Its been over 30 years sense I've even stuck my head inside of a J or R body.
What have you been sticking in them??? LOL!!! Same here, just don't see them around anymore, sadly.
