Question Converting '73 from idiot lights to gauges?

My son and I just bought a '73 plain jane Camaro in solid shape to fix up as a daily driver father/son project. It has factory a/c and a 350/TH350.

I want to install a nice '70 (I think) instrument cluster I have with a 150 mph speedo, gauges, and an 8K tach in place of the non-tach and idiot light equipped stock cluster.

Am I going to need a different dash harness and/or engine harness to do this? Anything else?

If so, can anyone recommend a good source?

Thanks!
