id say 'yes' But when you go to an electronic dash some buttons might be different... might have to swap the surrounding buttons over... I presume its digital feed?

im mostly think that all the wires are back their cuz when they build it the probly put all the wires in their but put in a lower model gauge in my car. do u think all the wires would be their and i can just take gauge out of a higher model car and put it in mine.

You know, there is a 92 Buick Regal GS in the local junkyard with a perfect dash cluster. I wonder if that would work, it has full sweep gauges similar to a Bonneville unlike you're very old Mopar style speedo you got there (no offence).

Check your owners manual (that came with the car). It should show all available clusters for your year.

Check the owners manual...

Usually these are not a direct swap. Are you good with electrical stuff? Be prepared to string a few new wires. It'* doable, but you'll probably have to spend some time. A factory service manual is essential.
