Re: Looking for a Mileage recorder

If that's the case, what IS period correct?  I;ve never heard of a paper wheel, or anything other than a period Halda rally chronometer?  And they're not going to be cheap unless digital doohickeys have outmoded and are cheaper than the mechanical ones.   Only other period correct pc might be a trailing odometer wheel like they used to use back in the day as more accurate than an original odo -

How about an app for your phone Bruce?   They have speedo apps for phones - better than dash speedo.

I'm looking for a thingamabob that attaches to the sun visor for recording mileage.  A mechanical counter or paper wheel thing?  My wife's 61 VW doesn't have a fuel gauge (it was an option tho) so you have to use the floorboard reserve switch when running low on gas.  Not wanting a logbook or one of those circular slide rules for mileage.  I don't know what to call it to search ebay properly.
