[Chrysler300] 150 MPH 300K speedometer

I’ve read that these don’t exist but here is a picture of a 1964 150 MPH speedometer.  1964 font, needle and background hue.   Not the same part number as the 1964 calibrated cop car unit or the 300J unit.  Going into our 300 K rag—just in case.  Perhaps John and Bob could post the picture for the K-faithful.  Or, request a direct transmittal from me.

Via their personal experiences, both Bob Haag and Don Cole have confirmed that Mother Mopar made a big mistake when they put 120 Speedometers in the K.. 


Glad that I was lucky enough to get a “J” 150 mph unit from Neil Freman’s yard for my 4 speed K :-)

Jerry Kocur bought his 300K cv. new and it had over 500,000 miles on it when he passed in August, 2017.  We had many good times driving to meets over the years.  My first meet was in Irwin, PA on May 6, 1972.  Yes, they were one day meets back then.  Jerry's first meet was in Mt. Pocono, PA in June, 1977.  He had joined the club in 1975.


As Martha indicated, Don Cole's Mystic, CT meet was the last one Jerry attended.  My records show that Jerry attended 51 meets,all in his 300K except for one.  He drove his Dodge Challenger to one meet.


Thank you, Martha, for contributing the pictures.  They bring back good memories.

Photo and article about Jerry’s  K and mileage via club webpage under:

   EVENTS  -  MEET REPORTS -  MYSTIC CT June 11-14, 2014  -  PICTORIAL

We were following Jerry in our K on Sunday morning after Don’s meet..  I took the photo of Jerry in his K just before he exited toward home.. I believe that was last Meet he attended. Great guy. I think K stayed in his family though? Hope we’ll see it again.


Bonus photo there too, Jerry and Don Warnaar with K at 1984 Harpers Ferry Meet. 


Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving all. We are thankful for this Club!
