I'm assuming your looking for the 100mph cluster correct?

The gauge clusters vary by year groups (amp vs. volt gauge, electric vs. mechanical oil pressure), and it will be hard to find a complete one with a another type of speedometer. However, the 100mph speedometer from an earlier cluster may work. Some speedos have a brake warning light or other unique lights, but other than that they are mostly the same size. From a junkyard you should be able to get an early 70's 100mph speedo for less than $10 if you pull it yourself.

Buckets from the Blazer (or maybe even Suburban) will work, but they are relatively hard to find in the junkyard. Most of the junked ones are very beaten up and replacing the cushions will cost as much as new seats.
