Looking at digital dashes and there are nicer options for the 84-87 Regals vs 83.
So my question is will the 84-87 fit, if not what modifications are required to make it work?
Thanks

So, here's what I figured out on it. I looked into this as well, because eventually I want to put the Dakota Digital VHX cluster in mine, but it requires the 84-87 cluster and bezel. Your best bet is to get a complete '84-'87 cluster & bezel off eBay. That's what I did. It will fit in the same opening, but you will have to change a few of the switches, and the location of the HVAC vent.

Like CaliWagon83 said but you will also need that black plastic piece from right behind the cluster in the 84-87 as it is different too.

I was told and hoping someone here can verify. The black plastic piece behind bezel that you speak of. That I could use one from a Cutlass as well. Before I look and buy 1 can anyone verify it’s the same? I can’t find one from a 84-87 Regal to save my life.

As luck would have it, I have one from the 84-87 cars I'd let you have, but you gotta pay the shipping. LOL
