85 560 SEL dash into 84 300SD?

Does an 85 560SEL dash fit into an 84 300SD?

Thanks,
Jeff

They are both W126 bodies, so I would think they should fit.

The cluster isn`t a problem, use the same SD cluster.

I pulled a dash out of a 85 380SE, and as I remember, the cluster was part of the price.
then if you don`t want the cluster, put it up for sale to cover some of the price of the dash. just remember to look at the Diff ratio and write it on the back of the cluster. I think the 126 is spedo geared to the diff like the 123.

Yea, I don't need the cluster. I'll check and see if I can just get the dash.

Hey, Charlie, they had some 240Ds at the PNP & it's half off this
weekend, you want me to look for anything for you? I'd be happy
to pull a part or two for you.
