Re: [Chrysler300] 1963-1964 300J-K - 150mph Speedo

My 4 speed K has a factory console tach. Not sure if that was standard on the car but am guessing it was. 
I'm not aware of a 150 speed on any '64' s, K or otherwise but I was told many years ago that the New Jersey State Police had '64 Chrysler pursuit vehicles on the NJ Turnpike. Maybe those would have had calibrated 150 speedos?
I put a 300J 150 speedometer in my K since I've always felt they should have come with that in the first place. ☺

      Historical/technical questions for the J-K crowd: Did all 300-J’s have the 150 mph speedometers and tachometers?Were the 150 mph speedometers and/or the tachometers an option on any other 1963 Chryslers?  Maybe special order?Did any of the 300-K’s or any other 1964 Chrysler (including police cars) have standard or optional 150-mph speedometers and/or tachometers?  Seems I had heard or read that all 30-K’s with four-speeds had tach’s instead of vacuum/performance gauges.Did any 1963 or 1964 Chrysler with a 150-mph speedometer have a different speedometer pinion gear—or were all calibrated to the standard 1,000 RPM @ 60 mph?I do recall that the 1963 300 Sport Pace Cars had compasses mounted in the consoles.  Was that option offered on any other ’63 or ’64 and did those work OK? FUN-WITH-NUMBERSI just ran some calc’s for 8.50 x 14 tires (28.10” OD); no tire-to-road slippage or wiggle-woggle, 3.23 differential ratio; 150 MPH requires 5,797 RPM at the tail shaft.  140 MPH= 5,411 RPM.  Possible for a J or K?   C300K’ly,Rich BarberBrentwood, CA From: Chrysler300@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:Chrysler300@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Matt Allyn allynentertainment@xxxxxxxxx [Chrysler300]
