Digging up this old thread I've found a trip speedo just like it, only in km.
And thanks to Jonh In2VWs I can prove its original, as it's shown in one of his catalogs dated 1955.
My speedo is also dated 4/54, my 4 digit trip is dated 10/56 so the change must have been made in between.

I'm no trip speedo expert, but I noticed that too. That's why it's not in my garage. Wink

Im about to buy this speedo. But after looking at a few things now, might be changing my mind. It has a part number of L158001.3, and dated April 1954. My concerns:

The knob (Looks like a clock knob)
The trip dial..(Has only 3 counter roller digits?)

Let me know what you think...
