I got mine from an 81-85 Monte Carlo. I researched this years ago mainly on the malibu racing site and el camino central. It stated that I needed to wire up the gauges but all I did was remove the old 80 el camino cluster and add the monte carlo one. It plugged up and works fine. The gas gauge works as well as the clock. The one I got came with idiot lights but I already had independent temp,oil and volt gauges. I had to do one mod and that was to the windshield wiper switch. HTH.
