Airspeed range

Post by 1567 » Wed Nov 06, 2019 1:26 pm

Does anyone know what the range, like 0 to 160, was on the airspeed indicators Cessna originally installed in the Cessna 120/140 aircraft.

Thanks in advance
Matt

This is mine, not sure if original, but the numbers appear to be correct.

The 140 will have a white arc for flap extension speed.

I have several photos of panels, and the most original ones all have ASIs that top out at 160, like the one above. The one I have that's a copy of an early sales brochure, is not readable, of course.
