'70s vintage gauges and shifter

I'm going for period-correct gauges and automatic shifter for my '73 Nova. The tach might be something like a Sun and the gauges might be Stewart Warner Green Lines but there might be others. My current shifter is a Hurst V-Matic but I'm not sure if that's too "new" or not. Any suggestions on some parts that would work here? Thanks.

I saw 2 vintage sun tachs on E bay with some astronomical prices on them.
You could look around over there to get an Idea of what make model to look for in the future. Just a thought.

The flea market in Adamstown called Schupp's Grove has some vendors with vintage auto parts. I saw a complete tailight for 57 chevy when I was there last time.
If you are near there in Pa it might be worth the trip.
One guy had some old car radios, and Liscense plates. You never know where a good find will pop up.
Naturally if you go to the Carlisle , Pa event there is allways stuff you will want, but t a price...

I settle for the reproductions now out if need be. Just looking for ideas on what was popular back then.

V-Matic shifter might be a bit new. The B&M Starshifter would be correct as it came out in the early 70's
