VDO instrumentation includes a central tachometer, a 150-mph speedometer, and a fuel level gauge. The five-digit odometer shows 37k miles, less than 50 of which were added under current ownership. The seller states that the odometer was repaired in preparation for the sale, and the true mileage is unknown.
