Wilda** guess:
Somebody put a high-revving engine, such as a Honda, in a Healey with a 10000 rpm Smiths motorcycle tach having a custom dial face. There are many Google images of these tachs but didn't see one with the exact Healey styling.

I saw some 10k rpm tachs being sold for Minis as well as the motorcycle tachs. I couldn't find anything that had a provision for the ignition light like that, though. I'd like to know what that billet knob is in front of the the tach, too. Turn signal lever? Inquiring minds want to know.

Here are three Healeys that rev to 7500 rpm!

Photo is from the Healey Race that took place on saturday at Castle Coombe. Overall winner for third year in a row was David Grace but young Jack Rawles (18 year old son of Healey restorer and racer, Bill) was driver of the day after putting his car on pole and finishing second in his first ever race in a Healey! The Rawles car is the white one with blue stripes on the left of the photo.
