Speedometer on a 1959 Plymouth???
A friend of mine has a 1959 Plymouth with a 6 cylinder and the speedometer registers up to 200MPH?!? Did they ever make such a car and can anyone explain this?

Are you sure his car isn't imported?
Perhaps the speedometer is reading in kilometers instead of miles in which case 200 KPH would be around 120 MPH.

Whatever you do, dont ever attempt to take ANY Plymouth close to that speed. 80 miles per hour perhaps, but thats tops :)
