Also not a 68... But it does have the Tic Tok Tach & the gauge faces are very clean...

So it's likely an SE dash if out of a Charger. Pic of the whole back?

It is a 68 cluster frame that someone did a cosmetic upgrade years ago. The 68 frame can be identified by the circled area in the picture attached. Also, the shade of green on the turn signal lenses are 68. Those gauge face overlays are the oldest ones from years ago. They did not reface the odometer which is so typical with an old restoration of these clusters. They took liberties with the tach pointer(painted it orange/red), someone just added the woodgrain bezel which is incorrect (however, restorable). Cannot tell if they used the quartz clock upgrade and/or new(at the time) tach board. This cluster is a good candidate for complete restoration.

Thanks for the input, I learned a bunch. I don't think much time was devoted to this cluster from the previous owner. He didn't even know that it wasn't a 70 until we talked about it the other day. Probably bought it this way by the owner before him, or somewhere over the years. How long have they been doing resto's on these?

The clock is easy to test, just ground the cluster and put 12v to the grey wire for a second. If you hear a click, the electric relay is good. Then it’s just a matter of cleaning up the pivots and shafts.

Sorry, I was away. Put power to it last evening, the clock works. The second hand had a nice quiet sweep

Do you have an example of a 70 cluster frame or any numbers on the frame to verify?
I have a 70 cluster frame the looks very similar to one posted.

It is a 68 cluster frame that someone did a cosmetic upgrade years ago. The 68 frame can be identified by the circled area in the picture attached. Also, the shade of green on the turn signal lenses are 68. Those gauge face overlays are the oldest ones from years ago.
