Here's a front and back pic of it
Looks like a Studebaker, theres one on ebay that looks real close (mounting points, numbers etc)
Looks like Hudson
It's definitely a Hudson stepdown speedo. I checked the one in my '53 Hornet for comparison:
Looked the same as a 50 Hudson I google searched, thanks. What is a step down speedometer?
"Step down" is the style of Hudson. All Hudsons from 1948-1954 were called "step downs" because the floor pan sits inside the frame, flush with the bottom, so you "stepped down" into the car. Other cars of the time had the floor pans on top of the frame. It was pretty radical in 1948.
Thanks. You learn new things every day!
