Re: Factory Gauges
I had factory gauges in my 69 4-speed which needed some work, and have added autometer gauges to my 68 in the pod that fits in the same spot. If you don't want or need to stay stock the newer gauges work much better IMO and they are all electric. They are also cheaper and easier to install. I wired them all my self and it took a couple weekends (a little more time, way less money for the wiring). In either case you will need to remove the top of the console to get at the screws that hold the pod on which means you also need to take off the console door.
