I think one of you has the wrong speedo gear in the sender unit.
If one of the cars came standard with 14s, the speedo drive gear in the box will need changing.
The only way you can be sure is to remove the one that's in there and check the colour. Use the calculator [link below] to work out the correct colour gear. If they match, that speedo is correct. If they don't spend $13 at Ford to get the correct one and fit it.
