Normally has a date stamp (month Year) on the back

Looks to be a Brasilia Bus speedo.

Or even a late Brasilia Beetle with alternative fuel use

Too big for Type 3 or KG

I Think

I would say the light between 80 and 90 is when your headlights is om brights.

What is the date on the back if it got one?

Hi Terry, bus speedos I don’t collect….not on purpose anyway. ‘72 beetle…I’m not sure, the ones I have are all a bit different. Sorry

Will post more with time to get them ID’d.

Seems like the ATF is for Automatic Transmission Fluid. I did see somwhere it is for the fluid level but in the pic it shows temperature.
