Description

 

You are bidding on an AMAZING example of a 0-750 km/hr Fahrtmesser (Airspeed Indicator), Fl. 22240! Similar to the Fl. 22241 (900 km/hr.), it was most likely used in the early-war Me262, Me163, Do335, and He219!
 

   

This gauge is a late war version, produced between 1944 and 1945.  Located on the main instrument panel, it measured the current airspeed of the aircraft. 

 

Made of black bakelite, this instrument is in SUPERB unused condition!  100% of the original finish remains, and there are no major scratches, dents, or damage to the bakelite!   The Fl. label is 100% complete, indicating Fl. 22240.  This is the compensating type, that displayed a more accurate velocity at low speeds.  One of the NICEST speedometers I have seen of this type!  I have indicated similar types in the last photos.  Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————– 
Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase. 
 
——————- ABOUT ME —————– 
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
