It's not a question of "Cruise Control"..it's a question of if the truck has an electric speedometer or a mechanical one. If you have a speedometer cable running to the back of the speedometer on the truck, then it's mechanical and the speedometers should swap fairly easily. If you do not, that means the speedo is electrically driven and the 70's camaro speedo will not work.

LOL duct tape fixes everything!

85 is the year that GM started putting the electronic speedos in their vehicles. I know all the Pontiac Firebirds switched to electronic that year...might not be the same for the trucks, I don't know.

speed buffer mounted on the bck of the speedos in the F body cars started in 82 at least, or earlier,

not in the trucks until wayyyy later


it will be the same size but screw holes may be in wrong places,

can be done though

77 was last year of screw on style cable BTW

78-up are clip on



good luck
