Default Instrument cluster 1968 Mustang

I have an original 1968 fastback with a 289. The interior is all-original, black, however the water temp gauge does not work, and there is no tach. Does someone sell these original gauges or original looking gauges in a group or separately? I saw some of the small tachs that look like the originals, but I want to get a larger one. If someone can point me in the right direction, that would be great, thanks.

Hello. Are you sure that it's the temperature gauge itself that doesn't work, and not just the sending unit, or maybe a wiring problem?

Mustang suppliers (MustangsUnlimited, NPD, etc.) sell a replacement temp gauge but as Veronica mentioned you'd want to see if it's the sending unit in the intake manifold that's bad first (check cheapest fix first).
I have not seen the full size tachs ~5" that replace the gas gauge pod for sale, I think someone was making one but it was $$$ like >$200? These came on Shelby's and special cars, usally big blocks with drag packs, etc. so they're very hard to find original and way more than the repops.

The small retrogauge tach fits in the center clock/blank hole, I have one for my automatic car and it works great/looks stock as it has the same fonts as the other gauges.
