Well no. Gauges would not work. You would have to totally strip the truck, new gauges, rewire the engine so it would run, have to find a different trany, Th350 or 400, re-dew the fuel line to the gas tank, possibly find a different drive shaft, probably more stuff to do, this is just off the top of my head.
