Q: Gauge Conversion 1967 to 1968
Did the 1967 firebird ever come with a 160 speedo gauge cluster like the 1968? I know that the 1968’s have two chrome rings on the bezels, while the 67’s had only one. I would appreciate any leads.
A: No, the 1967 Firebirds only came with 120 MPH speedos. Even the optional Rally Gauge Cluster was 120 MPH.
A: The 1967 used 120 speedo 68-9 used 160. The 1967 and 1968 bezels were identical, both had 2 chrome rings. The bezel lens was different, 1967 was deeper than 1968 on the cone height. Currently only 1967 is avaliable in reproduction. In answer to other 68 gauge setup comversion I am currently restoring the speedo and gauge sets to look like new for 68-9. As for the conversion I do have the parts and heres what it takes. Dash harness with fuse box, gauge setup with speedo (speedo is different than idiot lights),engine harness, forward lamp harness, both of these are unique to V-8 or OHC-6. Alot of work but worth it. You cannot cut corners on this conversion and get everything to work.
