I am trying to return my 69 SCJ to its period correct Pure Stock racing form. I noted that at one point the car had a column mounted tach, as it is otherwise a standard hardtop. I understand Ford offered some Over-the-counter add ons and was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a period correct column mounted tach? Did Ford ever make a "Cougar" scripted tach?

Thats a sweet tach. Is the base curved to fit on the column, or does it need to be mounted on the tranny hump for non-consloe cars as the catalog suggests?

We are having an end of year inventory reduction sale, MAKE OFFER! Yes, it has a curved bracket for the column. Kind of funny that the aluminum T pan, intake, scatter-shield and all the other performance items Shelby offered for a Cougar bring double of what the like Mustang / Shelby part brings!
