Default Dakota Digital Dash - DIrect Fit?

I see that DD has a direct fit guage cluster for the 67 Impalas. Wondering if the size is the same for the Pontiac full size cars also?

Different dash hole openings. Not saying they won't fit... but I don't think the clusters are the same. You could probably cut up the dash to fit if you wanted it...

Post picture of your 67 Pontiac dash. I remember what my 67 Abel Air dash looked like. I’ll also say, highly unlikely they are even close to same....

I guess I'm really asking if the bezel is roughly the same size? I know it will have a totally different gauge layout than this....

If it fit the Pontiac dash, I am sure DD would say so in their marketing effort. I suspect you would have to buy one and try it, then modify to fit. Check the return policy first.

Iíve called their tech support on several occasions and found them to be helpful. Maybe they can give you an answer. If you decide to move forward, you may want to ask about lead times. Iíve been waiting for 6 months for a set of gauges for my Firebird.

Look at photos of a Pontiac and then a Chevy. The Chevy cluster is twice as tall, at least 3Ē wider, and does not have the gear indicator built into it. The Pontiac has a wood grain trim piece that houses the headlights and wiper controls and AC controls in it, the Chevy does not. As I said, youíd have to heavily modify your dash (including relocating all of those controls plus the AC vents if you have them). Not even close to a direct fit.

Thanks for the replies. Looks like I'll find a speedometer housing and see what DD can come up with.
