Curious if there are any known reportings of an 86 having only 5 digits in the odo (not inc. the tenths) so that you could see a 100k roll on.

I would think you would need 6 digits to show 100,000 miles. without the 10ths miles.

If an 86 only has five digits in the odometer then my guess would be the speedometer assembly has been swapped out. I want to say from 81 or 82 on they were six digits?

Here's what your 86' model year speedometer should be like.





Aftermarkets versions like Crown are like these.

Here's the 5 digit factory version that came in my '81, for comparison.
