Any difference? I have access to a really nice original out of a 68 sattelite. I was thinking of saving a few bucks and used the 68 in my 69 RR. i wasn't sure if there is any difference between the 2 years.

It's been a while, but I remember something about the high beam indicator being different , maybe in 1970.

I think the roadrunner should have more MPH listed. I can't remember off the top of my head how many MPH's they are, but think the base models had slower speedo's.

68 and 69 are the same.

BTW, Roadrunners had 120MPH speedos. GTX had 150MPH

None that I can think of except some small (graphic) lines in the tach/clock/no clock/no tach area. The GTX had the 150 mph speedo, RR's to 120 mph like the Satellite, Belvedere.

The 69 and 69 temp gauges are different. The 68 operating range is narrower with the start of the range farther over than in 69.

under the "learn something new everyday" I just found this Chrysler (Dodge) bulletin but don't know if it also pertains to Plymouth '69 temp gauges "early and late '69"

I seem to think the the 68 temp gauge has been found in some early 69 clusters though.

There was a post about this a few years back.
