I started wondering as I was cleaning my interior today... how many miles do ya'll have showing on your tri-fives odometer? Now this only pertains to those of us who still have the original stock cluster in place.

Might be interesting to see.
I have 18,247 showing(that's actually 118,247)there is only about 7k since the car was rebuilt though:)

My 56 has 14,824 showing. I've owned this car for 33 years, and it has rolled over twice since I've owned it. It was showing about 65K miles when I bought it, so I don't know if that was original.

My 55 Belair 2dr sedan has 52,000 on it but has not been registered for the past 40 years. My unrestored 56 convertible had 38,000 on it when I got it, now 26 years later it has 62,000 on it. My 55 210 wagon has 95,000 on it but unknown if actual. My 57 Suburban has 92,000 on it. All are documented except the wagon.

Restored cluster with NOS odometer roller assy. 7,000 miles. It's a frame off total restoration so I figure I am entitled to starting off with zero miles? Dave

My 55 Sedan Delivery read 97,xxx on it when I bought it in '78. I always assumed it meant 197,xxx. I'll never know. But, it didn't have the original motor or tranny, so I figured the original had so many miles, it wore out.

When I built mine back in the 90's, I had the guy zero out the odometer,

I just turned 50,000 miles on it, adjusted for the 10% the speedo/700R4 mismatch, I figure I've got about 45,000 on it.

1955 4DR Wagon, 350/300, 700R4

Nice driver, power disc brakes and all. Wish it got better gas milage though. 3:30 rear, 600 cfm Edelbrock carb. It's a GM Hi-Performance crate motor, steel heads, not a big cam.

Ah well, still real fun to drive, sway bars are my next investment when I can scrape the dough together, can't wait!:bowtieb:

58,500 miles

I purchased this car a few months ago and it's all original but showing her age. Have no real good documentation other than I know the guy that's owned it the past 20 + years and it's hardly been driven. The service tags on the door tell me it's original miles, per dates and mileage. Just wish he'd done some maintenance!
