I have the JME insert in my '65. You should find that the opening in the metal is the same. Not sure about the gauge sizes as I did not go that route. If I was to do it over not sure that I would do the JME. Very expensive and you could do about the same with the '66 gauges.

ahh nice!! thanks!!! I had a chance to buy an aftermarket kit with autometer guages, barely used some time back, passed that day as I didn't have the money, was gone the next morning!!! ack!! oh well, since I am KINDA restomoding my car, I am not all that concerned with stock look, but was thinking of using a 66 bezel and guages. I just like the look better, I need to replace all my stuff anyways since my car is a low mileage (77k) car, but has been off the road since 73 so lots of dirt, and unmentionables running around in it...lol
thanks for the help!!

Hello. Yes it will. This is a picture of a 65 with a 66 instrument pod. If you look at where the speedo cable is sticking out from inside the dash, you will see that the bottom of the dash opening is pretty straight there. On a 66 and a 65 GT or 65 pony interior car there is a dip there to make the install easier because of the round bottom of the 66 speedo, but it will fit in there. You have to kind of start it in with the top of the bezel leaning towards you and sort of drop it in from there, but it will go. There are some other changes that you have to make also. The oil pressure sending unit is different on a gauge than an idiot light and you only have one turn signal indicator on a 65 and the 66s have a left and right, little things like that, but it isn't really a big deal. Hope that helps.

Hi again. Thank you. You are too kind. Rewiring one of these cars is never a bad idea. You can get a 66 underdash harness, headlight feed, gauge feed and alternator harness brand new, as-original for a reasonable sum, and then you have nice new wiring and what you have looks exactly like what the factory wiring diagrams show, which will make future trouble-shooting soooooo much easier. Good luck
