Identify these gauges?

I bought this set of gauges of eBay a few weeks ago. I am trying to identify what make they are for (Im hoping ford got a ford gas tank/sending unit)
I think it looks like its out of a truck. I looked all over for any markings I could identify. Only color codes for the wiriing.




Any ideas?

Can I use some appropriate Ford sending units in my Chevy 350?

That is a nice looking cluster. Do not know about the temp or oil but I am sure that the fuel sender is different , GM is 90 ohms and the ford is around 180 for instance. You could go to a junk yard and pull a couple of senders out of some trucks or cars in that year range and just see if they will screw into the block, they are all 12 volts and will wire the same.
