It looks like the Speedo gauge is from a Stag they read up 140 where dolomites read 120

A proper Sprint clock reads to 140 (before 79) and 130 and a line at 140 on later cars. If your Sprint speedo only goes to 120 Dave, you have the wrong clock!

There are 3 distinct Sprint speedos. early cars up to VA 15000 have the 140MPH speedo in 10mph increments with a remote trip cancelling button. Va15000-30000 have an identical face but the trip cancelling button is integral in the bottom of the face. For VA 30000 on and all VIN numbered cars, the face is 130MPH in 20MPH increments and integral trip button. All Sprint speedos have the so-called "easyread" font.
