One of the best sources of authentic information
on antique
speedometers is from original sales literature.

Within these booklets and brochures, one can see what year
certain models were made, what components are appropriate
(cables, swivels, brackets), and in some cases how they are
hooked up from the illustrations provided.

I have collected this historical literature for years. As a service to
the antique automobile sector, I have begun to scan and post
them for others to see.

If you have literature that is not shown here, please consider
scanning and sending me a copy. I would be glad to add it to fill in
missing years for the various brands. Please enjoy and many thanks.... -Phil Knighton

VEEDER Back to top
Veeders were used on the earliest cars without a speedometer; they were popular with bicyclist before automobiles to record mileage as an odometer. Later some speedometers incorporated Veeders for odometer purposes, notably on the earliest Warner, Stewart and Jones speedometers. Note the Veeder speedometer and tachometer units and the hook up components illustrated. These are very rare.
