I was looking at these  gauges. the problem is that it makes the console gauges useless and I'm trying to keep the car as stock looking as possible using OEM style and size gauges. I'm not interested in modifying/creating new brackets to fit aftermarket gauges.

Understood. This what I am doing. Parts are here and they look great.

Looks nice. If I get desperate I may go that way. I'm currently in contact with Dakota Digital about a custom set-up using the digital VFD3-71M-CNT carcass but installing/manufacturing analog gauges similar to their VHX style gauges. The cost will be eye watering, particularly with todays currency exchange rate but I want what I want and there aren't many options out there that don't require a lot of modification on my part.

If you did not get the dimensions you need I will take some pictures later today. I have several gauge cars.
I was not aware that anyone made a real workable replacement wire harness. Each car is unique to what options came on it and if you go with a generic it will probably be a pain. It took me months to find a good one for my vert 73 with gauges, auto, air, convenience group, console, AM/FM, 351. If there is such a thing as a replacement that works with all the connections I would love to know about it.
Let me know if you need any measurements.

Available as of June of 2017. It's pricy but it's the only one available. I ordered a set from one of their Canadian distributors.

Can you confirm the tach/speedo diameter as well as the fuel, volt, temp and oil gauges.
