Ferrari 250 GTO Tachometer

The Part

Another exciting lot has come to us care of one of the UK’s most significant private Ferrari collectors. Namely a tachometer/rev counter from a Ferrari 250 GTO or LM. Arguably the most crucial instrument on the dashboard of these iconic models, this instantly recognisable part could be that vital missing piece, or even the perfect display piece for a Ferrari fan’s office. 

This rev counter has been on the ‘treasure shelf’ for at least fifteen years. Possibly much longer. The rear of the instrument is stamped RAPP. 1.4 and ‘VEGLIA MADE IN ITALY’. There are also two ink stampings on the rear. One reads 4N, the other is harder to decipher and in rounder script and reads either 620616 or maybe 620916. 
The dial reads up to 100 (x100), the instrument face is clean and original, as is the needle. The adjustable ‘redline’ needle is also still present and functional. 

The unit is in exceptional used condition, and even retains the original clamping arms and screw nuts used to secure them. And while the instrument is offered as being untested, there is certainly no visual indication of any damage or cause for it to not work. 

While this is believed to be an original item, the nature of it means it’s not entirely possible to verify this. However, being a font of Ferrari-based knowledge, the seller has added that “I cannot assure that this is an original 1960s Tacho, but if it is repro, then it was probably made in the 1980s/ 1990s rather than more recently - modern replicas don't have the stamping on the back.”

Offered with a low reserve, this tachometer could be fitted to a car once more, it could be mounted as a display piece or it could simply further bolster another enthusiast’s parts collection.

**NOTE: All shipping and insurance costs to be paid by the buyer to the seller directly**

 About the max bid process

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

About Max Bids


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 10-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

If your bid is below the reserve price you'll bid that amount if you are the highest bidder.
If you are the highest bidder and place a bid above the reserve we will only go up to the reserve price.
Once the reserve has been met C&C will make sure you are the highest bidder using the bidding increments stated below, keeping you in the lead up until your maximum bid.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000£100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000+ £500.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
