8404 miles so it says. Pretty rough miles at that.

This is in the same auction and from the looks is true mileage https://www.proxibid.com/1986-DODGE...984587&scrollLocationOnCatalog=19393

Fire truck with a new flatbed and paint job. Hard life for a truck. Might get started and warmed up weekly and idled for a half-hour but not move for a month, then started cold driven like crazy for 5 miles, only to sit and idle for 8 hours on a scene. Hour meters are a MUCH more accurate indicator on any governmental vehicle... That said, if it was available when I bought my last truck in 2020, I'd probably have been bidding...

Dang that speedometer needle sure escaped fading compared to the others. I know the outer ones tend to get a little more fading but it's like night and day on this one. Makes me wonder if the speedometer didn't come out of another truck.

I don't think it's been replaced. If you blow up the pic and look at it on a PC, the right side of the speedometer is faded out. You can see it in the KM/H readout. It starts out in orange, but by the time you get to the highest reading, it's almost white.

Still, not sure how a gauge ends up half faded. Partially blocked by the steering wheel? shruggy

Oh you're right John. Depends on how it's usually parked a lot of the times. For years now, if I can't park my cars in shade or garage I cover my gauges with a towel because of this.
