Turna, is your gauge bezel out of a MC, and if so what year?

So 1980 Malibu's came with the round gauges? Or was that an option you could order back then?

Sweep gauge was standard on Malibu Monte and Caminos Round gauges where the option.

There were also many options within the round gauge platform

There was also a round 'gauge' cluster that only had the fuel gauge. The oil/temp/volts gauge locations just had dummy lights like the wide sweep cluster. Some had a clock in the tach location, some had a tach, some had both if I remember right.

Also, the round gauge setups with just dummy lights instead of actual gauges weren't plug & play compatible with the center 4-gauge group, the actual cluster housing is different.
