To rectify the fact that the Mustang had no factory tach available, Ford introduced the Rally-Pac gauge set. It featured a 0-6,000-rpm tachometer and clock. K-code Mustangs got a 0-8,000-rpm tach. The Rally-Pac could be ordered from the factory, dealer-installed, or purchased over the counter. It was a fairly good solution and certainly better than nothing. The small diameter tach face was often hidden behind a steering wheel spoke and was difficult to see, and the Rally-Pac didn't help those with a column shift mechanism. The 6,000-rpm version is available at most Mustang vendors. Dallas Mustang offers it for $434.99 and the 8,000-rpm model for $469.
