"M-17255-D" was the original part number through Ford Motorsport (now FRPP).
the prefix "E5" is 1985 when it was introduced and "ZM" in there means it was a part produced exclusively for Ford Motorsport and not a normal production line item. Most likely it was manufactured by the same vendor and the production 85mph speedo.

If the gauge face manufacturer is the same as the movement manufacturer, it's Yazaki Meter. And Brent is right, same as the 80/95 mph gauge, Yazaki.
Rick, the speedos are electronic and are from what I understand, a drop-in.

Ther are a couple of chips in the assembly, I don't know if they're in-house numbers or what, much less if they're any different than the stocker. It may be possible to convert a stock speedo over. I'll know more soon as I dissect mine.

The 140mph Speedo is a "drop in". I got mine off eBay.
