Question New instrument display... spedometer..gauges

Hey folks,
My first post.. I have a 65 GMC 910 pick-up. It is a pile of junk right now but I plan on a
3-5 year project. I was wondering how things would hook up if I customized the displays. A new speedo... from a newer vehicle , will it require the gears from the donor vehicle. If any of you have done this before, your tips and advice is more than welcomed. Thanks. Hoping for answers.

It may be easier/cheaper in the long run just to go with aftermarket gauges. You can get some really nice looking gauges through many of the HotRod suppliers for a reasonable price and they are actually pretty easy to install yourself.
Later,

Vic I have a 63 GMC short. Depending upon what look you are going for, it may help in what guages you go with. After market has anything you want but, if you want an original look there are several reliable places to go to get reworked originals. You may want to ckeck out thefillingstation.com They go early GM to 72. Hope this helps. Pappy32
