Should the 1954 D1 have a 55 or 70mph D shape speedo, mine has e 55mph fitted. Is the gearing the same as I don't think I will be exceeding 55mph on it.

I have a 55 mph speedo on my D1 that has many times been “off the clock” (admittedly not with a D1 engine). It still works.

Thanks for the replies, I had seen 2 D1s at a show with 70mph speedos and wondered if mine was incorrect. I think the 55 is safe on a standard D1 lol.
