Default Park Avenue / LeSabre interchange questions.

A question for you Buick owner'*..... Will the instrument cluster from a Park Avenue fit a LeSabre and will it work with the LeSabre harness? My '94 LeSabre will be retired from daily driver status the end of this year and I have some "fun" plans for it. I would like to have a factory tach and gauges which was an option but it seems to be a lot less common than tach and gauges in a Park Ave. The local late model yards are lousy with P/A'* with tach and gauges and they aren't real proud of them. Also would a '94 Park Avenue use the same front cradle as a LeSabre? TIA

Not totally sure if you can or not... If they are anything like the Bonneville there may be some wires/pins mission from the connector or the connector will have to be re pinned... For the difrent cluster... From a looks standpoint it would appear that a Rally Gage cluster from a Park Avenue may work in a LeSabre... I have seen a few LeSabres with the full cluster and it looked exactly like the Park Ave Cluster... Doe the Lesabre have the ( idiot Lights ) across the top par of the dash like the Park Ave?

And I believe that the C Body may have the same subframe dimensions...

The best bet is to find someone with a service manual that covers both the C and H body...

Yep, idiot lights across the top. I may check the local yard and see if they will look the cluster and cradle up in their Hollander interchange manual for me. Thanks!

Thats a possibility... The Service manuals will also give you the dimensions of the cradle... Should be pretty interesting...

I have seen some LeSabres that did have the full cluster too... My friends Park is a 91( first year for the body and Tuned Port 3800 in it ) He has the full Cluster and the lights across the top... Let us know if it can be made to work..

Tach and gauges were an option on the LeSabre Limited along with a "Sport" suspension, have only ever found one so equipped though and it was creamed in a head on and nothing was usable. Not too many Grandma'* were into performance but a few of us "Grandpa'*" are so I'm going to build my own out of my LeSabre Custom with a few other "refinements".

If the cluster and cradle will swap I'll be sure and post it.
