That looks like a good ole truck you're getting. My experience with that era gauge is that it works til it doesn't, then it's usually the gauge sending unit in the tank. Haven't looked around for one in a while, but some web crawling might turn up a supplier or restorer. Til then you just have to keep up with the odometer readings. Estimate your mpg and do the math.
