    You should be able to. The difference was the way they attached to the back of the gauge cluster. New aftermarket cables say they work for all years. As long as you go aftermarket and not oem, it should work.

    Some later models have two cables and connect to a sensor for the maintenance warning system or something. A 78 cable didn't fit my 74 but the 74 cable fit both the 78 and the 74.
