    ok guys, if you should happen to go out and buy yourselves a sweet vintage p20 to restore, heres a little weird trivia for ya......

    a '77 p20 step van uses the gauge cluster for a 63-65 nova gt/chevy II, lol

    heres my speedo....right out of the nova.....

    That speedo looks like the same one they used in a '65 Chevelle too, but I don't remember the guages looking like that. X2 on Caddi & the wiring harness. '65 to '77 is just too many years different for a wiring harness to match up. Plus I doubt if the Nova harness would be long enough even if it did have all the right connectors & proper guage wireing.
