    Will the cluster from a 78 camaro fit a 73 ? I don't care about the MPH being a bit difference and such, just would like to have a tach is all. I found two for a great price !

    Thanks

    I'm a little late with this. I just put a 78 cluster in my 70. As for the speedo I took the 150 MPH speedo out of my original cluster an installed it in the new one ditching the 78 130 MPH speedo and keeping the cars odometer reading. You should have no troubles.

    Same cluster with subtle differences on the limits, colors and needles. In fact you can put a 1981 cluster in a 73
