Howard that dash will not fit a 68, it will bolt into a 69 - 76.

Thanks Philip, wouldn't want to mislead anybody. I got it in a batch of parts a long time ago. Guy did a RESTO-MOD, I think his car was a '72. No guarantee that it came from his car either, but it is in nice shape. Not all sun cooked or scratched up.
It would help to raise a little cash, I've got a cyl. full of coolant on my '70. Self inflicted, forgot to turn the water pump and fan back on.
...... here's better pics of the dash panel ....

Very nice, it appears to be a 72 because of the seat belt warning light.

Thanks, just wondered if someone put something different in there since it all looks so clean, wish there was a place to put gauges in though..

I got a 72 with A/C & the dash is speedo & fuel gauges only. The rest is idiot lights. How much work & what do I need to hook up the tach dash???

First order of business is finding a used tach that either works or can be easily repaired. Then finding a matching instrument cluster. If I'm not mistaken it goes in the hole the clock occupies but the thick film wiring is different (once again I'm working on memory but the gauge dash wiring is different than the idiot light wiring).

Factory tachs were slow and hard to read. I recommend using an aftermarket tach if you actually need one.
