If the speedometer works but the odometer does not, the problem is inside the speedometer. Probably a stripped gear.

The problem is going to be a worn or broken odometer gear. You can purchase the gear at odometergears.com for $29.00 with the shipping. Follow their how to repair on the Mustang to help in the repair. I believe you will have just the worm gear to replace.

have you tested the brake light switch? it is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is very common for the wires to that switch to break inside the plastic insulation, the switch testing goes like this, there should be 12 volts present at both sides of the switch with the brake pedal depressed and one side without the pedal depressed.

It could be the cable is dry, this causes it to stick (shows zero) then wind up untill it frees (jumps up) then do it again, disconnect the speedo end, pour oil down and leave it suppoted so the oil can work its way down, re connect and it will get better as the oil works its way along .
