The seats are almost definately a yes, but the dash is a no. The wiring changes year to year, and none of the displays will work.

Well, you can do it, but it is NOT plug-and-play.

Personally, I don't think it is worth it.

My neighbour'* '87 LE has all the gauges (and at least a driver'* power seat), as far as I know.

But that might be a different case.

What year is your big gold car?

Do you have the Factory Service Manual?

I'll help you with the dash swap if you want.

No mines got full gauges too, and it'* an '87. Mine'* also got the power drivers seat with NO recline (manual or power) with a manual passenger seat with POWER recline. Go figure. Mine also doesn't have rear defrost, and it originally had the wire wheels. And the N10 dual exit muffler. Lol just goes to show how odd these cars can be.
