Just reliving my childhood


#1

What 1960’s car I believe it was a “General Motors product” Had a liquid display Speedometer that changed colors the faster you traveled??


#2

My 1948 Dodge had this feature. The speedometer glowed green until it hit 30–then the speedometer glowed amber unti 50 miles an hour. Above 50, the speedometer had a red glow. My dad’s 1947 DeSoto was the same way. I do not remember any GM car of the 1960’s having this feature. Furthermore, I don’t remember any liquid display from this time period.

Thank you

I don’t recall precisely but I also believe it was Desoto. My BIL had a 57 that I think did that.

More than one upscale '60s car model had a speedometer that changed colors as you went faster. However, it was not a liquid (crystal?) display. That technology did not come along until a couple of decades later.

Yep, some Mercedes models had that feature in the 1960s, but it was mechanical, not liquid.
