The pointed style lens came on cars originally built before Jan. 1970. Everything after that was a flat lens. A good source for these gauge clusters and tachs is ebay. They do typically go in the $70. range. Sometimes you can get lucky and find them in Skylarks in the bone yards.

When going to the gauges, you will need to get an adapter plug to go into the wiring harness, or rearrange the wires in the original connector to make them work. You will also need all new sending units for the water and oil pressure. For the tach, you will need a wire to go from the back of the tach to the neg. of the coil. The wiring harness will have the two lite lamp connectors back there, if not already in the clock. They are brown I believe, and their is a dual pink wire with connector with them. That is for the speed warning if so equipped on the speedo. Make sure all gauges etc. have a ground wire going to the harness. Almost always one of the black wires in the harness.
