Just curious if the third gen cluster assembly will physically bolt into the dash of my 76?
I've got what I believe to be the factory cluster out of my 76. Shift works makes a gauge package for the earlier cars. I like the factory look and would love to have engine temp and oil pressure in the factory dash instead of making a custom cluster plate for aftermarket gauges.Yes the speedometer cluster will fit, the dash bezel is a little different but will also fit. Want one from a 76?
I thought about going the same route. A couple of things were on my mind with it however. I haven't found a console yet (haven't really looked too hard either) and, I'm hoping to retain the column shift with the 460Le. If I swap I'll need to column too etc. Any ideas for the open area for the shifter?That is a nice conversion, too bad it won't fit. I have a Rally dash for my 77. It has everything but an oil pressure gauge. I decided not to use it even though like you I prefer something that looks relatively stock. Instead I went with gauges mounted in the console by using a 69 Camaro gauge pod made by Autometer and 4 of their gauges.
I like having all the creature comforts myself. The car has to be comfortable. I plan to cruise back to SoCal three or four times a year in it. Plus it should serve as a backup if my (on Momma's) DD takes a dive and I have to get into work. I want to keep it real simple. I retrofitted a 4rth generation Camaro interior into my 2nd gen and that was just too much change. I'm trying to avoid the snowball effect this time around.Even though it is built to be quick this hot rod is going to have all the power stuff my daily driver does, seats, windows, locks, cruise control, trunk release and AC. The weight will hurt my ET but it will see many more highway miles than track time.
Is there anything that isn't monitored with all those gauges ?Wow must of been a stroke of luck to find the power window stuff
I am running a console with gauges too and I have a covan's classic dash
And mine is a 76
