Yup. Factory '70 GTO hood tachometer. Internally lighted and has a defogger. Redline is lower than usual because this one is for a 455 engined car.

Not to knock their quality without knowing anything about the company....but before I buy any gauges, I'd want to know how accurate they are.

I had a set of Autometers in my WRX. While getting tuned at TurboXS, they noticed the boost gauge read ~ 3lbs less than real levels. So when I saw 16 lbs, it was really 19 lbs.

So saving a few bucks versus an accurate gauge....I'd rather drop the extra cash and prevent an expensive repair.

I ended up w/ 2 Defi gauges and the AEM UEGO which I did the A-pillar install. Not my #1 choice...but the NA Miatas don't have any clean, easy to see, mods for gauge placement.

I, too had the dual gauges behind the steering wheel...dunno why there isn't one on the Miata.
