A Canadian car would've come with a metric speedometer. Ie, the large numbers would read in metric and go from 0 to 240, and the small numbers would be in mph.
So, someone swapped out the cluster in this car.
Interesting to note the lack of the "Check Gas Cap" feature on the cluster. This indicates that they put a cluster from 2000 or before. (you can see it still has the coolant warning light to the right of the "Brake" indicator)

if the cluster is out of a 99 would it carrie over the same miles as on a 99. (maybe a little odometer fraud since it came from canada maybe they don't require you to right down mileage on the title or something...... just a thought
All that Canadian stuff, unfortunately, is all wrong. My car has a metric speedo, but the numbers are the same retoro type numbers.
As far as milage reports are concerned, it all has to be legit. In fact a used car dealer here in Toronto was fined a couple of months ago $ 50,000.00 and lost his licence for odometer fraud.
My guess is this guy wants to sell in the U.S. because of the dollar exchange $ 1.60 CDN for $ 1.00 U.S. ( it sucks, I know )so to convert the cluster to MPH he just grabbed anyone that would fit.

I wonder how he found out how many Bullitts were produced correctly if he hasn't been to Bullittclub yet? He is not registered. :???:
Ford has released the official numbers. A good friend from high school is a service engineer in the Diesel Group & he told me how many were made over Christmas. I told him I already knew from the club & he said he got the info from a press release. Some kid on StangNet also noted the number several weeks back & said he got it from his dad (I think that's what he said) who's a dealer.
I agree with Kaylan. He probably switched the cluster to sell it in the US for exchange rate reasons, not caring whether or not it matched what comes with the Bullitt. The Canadian Bullitt speedo is the same retro one as the US except in metric units (km's). So either there was a mistake on the assembly line or he switched it. I have also noticed that Mustangs seem to fetch a higher price in the US than in Canada...though I haven't done any factual research on this concept.
I know this is a very old post, but I did a search
I was wondering what the difference in gauges are in the bullit and the earlier stangs. I am looking for a bullit cluster to use the face plate on my existing cluster on my 95. I know the whole cluster wont work, But i am thinking the face plate will, anyone have any input
