Was curious to see how anyone has mounted their Holley Dash’s. I have a regal and Holley only makes a Dash cluster for a Malibu. What’s the difference between a 78 Malibu Dash cluster and a 83 regal Dash cluster? I have aftermarket gauges now so it’s all gutted behind.

1981-83 Regal gauges is like this

like you said, your cluster is gutted, so you might be able to make anything work...

I don't have an answer to your question, but I am interested in how you like the Holley dash? Maybe a Grand National gauge housing would be easier to mount to?

If they don't make one for a Regal you will have to fabricate one unless you want to cut up a $350 Malibu dash that is not even remotely close to a Regal dash.

I love the dash. It simplifies everything to a clean layout. Once everything is mounted I’ll post some pics.

You might want to try and modify an 84' and up Regal dash bezel since it has a full sweep speedometer.

565 is correct, most of the regal kits will be for the sweep style. I may have one kicking around here somewhere... may take a day or so to find it if you do...
