Question General Saturn Car Restoration Question

Hello all,

I posted this question in the off-topic section, but thought it may be good to ask in here as well...


In general, when you restore a car, whether it be a Saturn, old Chevy, Ford, Corvette, etc....what is the rule of thumb regarding the odometer when you rebuild a car and use it for shows, weekend driving, etc. ?

When you restore, do you just leave the mileage as it is on the car that you are restoring? Do you reset the mileage to Zero?

What is the standard? I know that some of you may be scratching your heads; but when my 91 SC is done; it will be a weekend car; and in 8 years I plan to get Historical plates put on it.

My 91 SC is 1 of only 10,000 coupes made the first year.

Legally, you are not to set it back, but waivers are available to state you had to. Older odos that only go to 99999, I would turn back unless it was a low mileage car. With 6 digit odos, I would tend to keep as is, unless everything is new.

I thought that clocking an odometer was still illegal... . I believe you can install a used IP in a car and use the reading from the replacement one (I'm assuming that would be the case for a new one, with zero miles).

I did this years ago (pre-federal mileage statement days) when I completely restored a car from the ground up, and it went from a 70k+ reading to zero with a new speedo/odo installed.

Your DMV is your best bet to ask about what you'd like to do.
