    It says made in USA and it is all metal. It had black wrinkle paint on the back part but most has flaked off. I took the back part off to look inside and it has a phillips head screw to turn for 4,6, or 8 cyl. No name on the tach at all.

    It's made by RAC. AKA Rac Tac. Sold at Gemco, White Front, K mart etc. Also sold by Sears under the Roger Penske name.

    the chrome is a little pitted. I know it use to work but that was 15 years ago. I bought the tach when I was in High school for about 5 bucks from a buddy that found it in a junk car. I sold the car in 95. I just recently was able to buy the car back and Ive seen all these vintage tachs on here and It got me wandering if it would be cooler to restore this tach and use it or buy one of the new SunPro repop.
     
  8. yea that's Esther son of brother Dick, lived on the hill. Played ice skating and roller derby, died last week, the whole family died.

    Looks like an RAC to me, or any number of other names that it was marketed under. they were common tachs in the '60s inexpensive and they functioned.
