    NOS brings in the money.

    Not worth it to me but purists are always willing to pay through the bazooga.

    It's worth whatever somebody is willing to pay for it. So, my answer is, yes it is.
    To me, no it isn't.

    I think I might have a gold mine...

    Well, its not new, got it from a junkyard, but it looks brand new, no scratches or anything. Saw it looked better than mine, so I grabbed it. I thought $20 was expensive.
    Dont know why anyone with a Blazer, PU, Sub would buy a factory style gauge cluster TRIM PANEL for that much

    These bezels are great too, aot of people don't realize there are 4 different versions. '73-'80, '81-'83, '84-'87, '88-'91. the eBay sellers always list them '73-87. Yeah right....I hope the buyer knows what he needs and what he's gettin'.
    Then for every year, there's many different trim levels. There was all black. Black with chrome openings, some years had all chrome face. IN the early years, the woodgrain pattern changed from '73 to '74 to 76. Woodgrain showed up again in the late 80's with yet another pattern.
    So I guess I could see, if you were doing a show quality restoration, and that is the bezel for your year and your trim level, then I guess it's worth it.

    Think about how many you see hacked up, then think how many perfect ones will be left in 20 years. :)
