will a 1971/2 dash cluster fit into a 77?

My car came out with no tach and only dummy lights- would a 71 or 72 cluster with rpm and temp gauges bolt in - like this one pictured?

Looks the same as mine-

You didn't say what car??....I'm guessing Camaro from the look of it, and if so, yes the cluster will bolt in.
Wiring harness under the dash will possibly be different, I don't know if it will have all the necessary wires for the tach and gauges differences, and things like the temperature sender and oil pressure sender in the engine are different, idiot light senders are different than gauge package senders.

There would have been a gauge package cluster available in '77, definitely Z28 and probably Type LT cars are most likely.

Like I used to tell my son, with a hand grinder, Sawzall, cutting torch and a MIG, ANYTHING will fit ANYTHING.
