Dash assembly for 73-77 Malibu/Monte/El Camino,etc.

Post by skeezix91 on Tue Jun 25, 2013 4:35 pm

Guys and Gals, I have a dash assembly to fit a 73-77 Malibu/ Monte/ El Camino. I bought it thinking I'd end up with a car with a cracked dash. Rhiannon's dash is not cracked, so I don't need this one.















I'm open to offers and will ship.

73 Montes have a 1 year only emblem.  It will fit & function in any 73-77 Monte/Chevelle/Elco.  That dash looks like it came out of a Malibu or Elco.  The set up is for a sweep style speedometer, for a non a/c car.

That's one heck of a find in great condition.

73 chevelle dash is a one year only.  The emblem on the right side bolts on and is not recessed like the 74-77.  This is a pic of my 73 , non a/c dash emblem.  Its missing the plate that says Malibu and has wood grain on it.  I have to glue that back on. The dash in the pic is from a laguna. I have the laguna, chevrolet and malibu plates that go in it.

Is there a difference in the dashes that came with sweep speedo as opposed to the round speedo, and are they interchangable?

I've never physically matched them side by side. But I have installed both types in several cars with no problems. Just a bolt in.

I didn't find there was a difference, as I've swapped them before. The only difference between square and round speedos is the wiring harness, and where the 2 studs for mounting the gauge cluster are located.

                       Saw this dash emblem in a 73 SS Chevelle on ebay right now. Never saw this one in a 73 before, I think its a retrofit from a 67 but not sure. Looks good there though. Well done!

I agree!  That looks like a retrofit from a 67.  This is what the dash emblem looks like on a 73 .

Between the chevelles, malibus, deluxe, el caminos and montes, GM made 6 different (1973 only) rectangular dash emblems.

My replacement dash (from a 73 Monte) which was originally for round gauge/warning lights has a different back-plate than my original 77 dash (sweep), which is similar to the one posted on this thread.  I've not seen a 74-77 Monte dash up close so maybe this is another 73 only thing.

Must be a 73 only thing as the 76/77 dashes I've seen, you just move the studs around and the gauge cluster drops right in.

Mine says Chevrolet even though it has the Malibu callout and SS equipment listed on the factory dealer invoice.
The SS I had back in 1981 said Chevrolet also.

Mine does too. I've had a couple of them and sold them off. Should have kept one of each.
