Gentlemen. What is supposed to illuminate on the bezel in the 2 rectangular holes above the tach and speedometer?

"Tailgate Ajar" on the left..."Fasten Seat Belts" on the right.

Why would my car have a tailgate warning light?

Same bezel used for the wagons.  Monte's have it too.  Just not hooked up in our cases. I repurposed mine to show other indicators.

Weren't all SS cars tach and gauge clusters?

Not all ss cars had a tach. They could.have a fuel gauge in place of the tach and idiot lights in the small round holes.

Would the wiring harness be the same at the cluster plug?

I would assume not since the fuel gauge is in different locations between the two clusters.

That explains why I had a hard time replacing that aftermarket rats nest that was in my car when I bought it.

oof that's a headache just looking at it! Toggle switch with light. So far every project car I've bought had an old toggle switch still hanging around. Including my current 73 SS.

Too many JC Wittney catalogs over the years encouraging owners to hack into the cars to add fog lights or whatever other B.S. that was the fad of the day....
