I keep seeing these (and getting outbid on Ebay. Were the 160 speedos a factory option, or an over-the-counter part, or something that GM never did and some third party came up with?

I might be wrong but the 160mph speedo is only out of a firebird, the camaro only came with a 120mph.

General is correct. I often see them at swap meets. In fact last April I found a 160 speedo with a very nice housing for $25. So keep looking they are out there.

The 1968 and 1969 Yenko Camaros came with 140 Speedo but I have not heard of any special speedo for a 67 Camaro.

My '67 SS has a 120MPH speedometer in it. I have never seen a 160MPH in any '67 I have looked at.

I put a 160 MPH speedo and ralley gauges from a Firebird in my 67 RS two months ago. My Camaro has the factory 8-Track so I have no room for the OEM console gauges. The Firebird cluster has the 160 Speedo on the left, the Fuel, oil, amp, and temp gauges on the right. Unfortunatly there is no tach in the cluster.

Be carefull about swapping just the 160 speedo. The Firebird 160 speedo also contains the brake light and both the left and right turn signal indicators. The Camaro 120 speedo has only the Left turn signal and a couple of idiot lights

Torch is not quite correct. Only the instrument clusters that came with gauges have both directional indicators on the speedometer. If you find a cluster with a 160 speedometer on one side and fuel gauge on the other you will not encounter that problem.
