The “Square Body” cluster is completely electric and is designed for seamless, direct installation into the stock dash of 1973-87 Chevy/GMC trucks, Suburbans, and Blazers. It also uses the existing factory bezel during installation maintaining stock appearance. End users have the ability to choose a near stock gauge style, or select one of Classic Instruments’ signature styles for a more unique cluster.

Installation is straight forward. The package includes a single-connection wire harness, replacement lens, and all necessary sending units. No need to stress about fuel sending unit compatibility either. The cluster features a fuel sending unit selector switch so you can set it for compatibility with the existing/factory fuel sending unit – no new unit is necessary.
