Dumb speedometer question

This is probably a silly one but here goes.

I went and test drove an '87 110 station wagon from England (had also spent time in Spain). The speedometer was in mph. They had full maintenance history and it all jibed with mileage. Non-mod car, straight civilian.

Wouldn't the speedo have been in kph?

I thought of this after I left so didn't have a chance to ask the guy. England changed to kph in the early '70's right?

Nope. England is and always has been in miles.

The UK went metric, but did not change to kilometers. It is a little goofy.
