I've got a '69 as well Mike, and like you I'm debating about which way to go because while my entire interior is new from carpets to seats, to door panels to headliner and dash pad... the bezel is the original and it looks scruffy compared to everything else.
My biggest question would be to go semi traditional with digital implants in a new OER bezel and a console setup. OTH, you can put everything into a new custom bezel. Here's a few examples:
Thats the Dakota setup.
I think this one is AutoMeter.
Thats a Custom Billet insert.
That one is from ClassicIndustries.
I have different hang-ups with all of them LOL. For instance... I'd probably jump on the Dakota bandwagon if they had a _matching_ clock module that would fit in the center pod thats usually left blank. The analog clock was an option back in the day, and what better way to make a more complete package that to have a module that fits the center section. Could also be a wide band, could be a combo with an analog looking digital clock that also had outside temp and maybe a compass at the bottom?
Size of the display is also an issue. In the case of analog type gauges, these cars need a really good-sized speedo-tach setup, at least as big as the OEM units. At this point, I have a Sun-Pro tack on the column, Sun-Pro gauges under the dash. They get the job done, but they don't look good.
