I have a 1970 Chevelle with a sweep dash, and I am looking into swapping it with an SS dash for better location of gauges. (Besides I think they look a little sharper).
What years will cross match for this application? I.e., will a '71 SS Monte Carlo Dash fit without major modification?

Thanks in advance for all responses.

Hey Chuck,

The Monte dash will fit with no modifications - just make sure that you get the dash harness too.

Also the Monte dash has a metal woodgrain front that if removed reveals an SS dash. Some of them have holes in the middle of the dash to hold the insert that will show when removed others did not(can't remember which years).

It doesn't need to be a SS Monte Carlo. All the 70-72 Monte dashes will bolt right up. Since you have a 70, using a 70 Monte would be the best. 71-72 have white lettered gauges instead of the light green 70 color. Kevin is correct, get the underdash harness. The engine harness would be helpful too, but you can modify yours. Steve is correct about the woodgrain dash. Some have 1/4 inch holes drilled in the dash to fasten the woodgrain. Some don't Before you buy one, take of the woodgrain and check. I've seen alot of 72's without the holes. I've got a webpage on gauge conversion you may want to look at:

Good Luck,

Thanks, Jimmy, et al.

I will start looking for a new dash local (although I do not think that I will have much luck). After that I will peruse the web page here for potential purchases.

Thanks again, y'all.
