I bought a "new" to me cluster gauge for my truck. Now looking at the new gauges it is not same as my AMP gauge :/

My gauge displays 50 - 0 - 50 yet this gauge shows D - 0 - C

See pics of my truck at this link - http://s5.photobucket.com/albums/y175/ShepFL/Vintage%2049/#!cpZZ3QQtppZZ28

See pics of my "new" gauge at this link -

I want my truck to be historically accurate. What yr. did GMC switch the AMP gauge layout? Can I get replacement AMP display? Or is my new gauge correct and the "original" gauge currently installed historically incorrect?

That's what I thought too but I've never seen a Chevy in those colors. Also a GMC gauge panel usually says 'fuel'. This one says 'gasoline'. The plot thickens.

JC and Classic Parts list that cream color for GMC (the D-C was my comment).

Here is the Chevrolet brown.

Where is gasoline/fuel shown?

I've never seen a decal for the "spider" portion of the gauge. A big oversight, IMHO.

I would have thought the meter movements would have been very similar, other than polarity. However, I am pretty sure my Chev gauge pegs long before 50 amps.
