    Just for fun I put together some gauges from my friends
    1971 Charger into my extra Magnum Dash. Has anyone
    here done this and did they work? They fit almost perfectly?
    I didn't have the older style Tachometer, still in the Charger
    so kept mine in all pics.

    Both 71-74 & 75-79 dashes are similar in layout! :icon_idea:

      Interesting, You need to pop it in your Magnum and see if it works.

        Well the speedometer looks the same on the back and should fit. I
        did check the smaller gauges and they do work. I'm sure that the
        older Tachometer will work with no problem, both were SB V8's.
        The Speedo worked in the Charger so I guess all that would be
        needed is making sure the right gears are in place to get the
        correct readings?

        My friend only has one dash with a tachometer, the other two both
        have clocks. The 71 dash I'm turning into a Digital Dash and
        restoring the other with the tach for his 72 Charger Rallye clone.
        I'm keeping the extra set of gauges for myself. The 150mph
        speedometer looks great in the newer dash! Might be a little hard
        to find a matching Tach for it, maybe I can find a bad one and put
        newer guts in the back of it? :D I also picked up a T-handle Slap-
        stick shifter and linkages.

        I am curious as to how well this has worked out for you over the years since this posting. I have located a complete rally cluster from 71-74 Charger and thinking seriously of doing the same project on my Cordoba. Would you please tell me of any points I should be aware of?

        Thanks,
        Dave

        Chris,
        Noted your still working at your craft. Putting together some really cool magnum options. Keep up posted and still active on the Forum. I'm still building my black 78 Magnum with your red interior.

          Yes, I like it's appearance. Only thing, I believe the 71-74 gauges are more expensive to buy I would suppose, so why would you want to use even older ones. I do wonder how the amp gauge works as I believe they may be hooked up in a different way? Shunt vs direct wire?

          Would be good to see in a Magnum! More in character with its sporting image than in a Doba.

          I'm looking to change my gauges in my 1975 Cordoba.
          I want to add a tachometer in place of the temp/fuel gauge larger gauge and replace the smaller the oil pressure and Alt. gauges with Fuel and Oil and Temp and Alt. in the original spot in the dash.
          Do you have the Part numbers of the gauges that I will need?
          or the sizes of the gauges. I would like to get all the parts before I take the dash apart.
          The picture you show will work for me. also do the gauges fit in place of the original gauges?
          Thanks

          Here's another curious question. I'm wondering the underdash reproduction wiring harness for a '73-'74 charger would work on the early Cordobas? Just a thought.
