speedometer dials

Would the dial from a speedometer from a different model Benz fork in an 560sl? In other words, if you found a perfect speedometer face in a 560se and removed the face (Obviously dissembling the whole speedometer cluster) would it be the same size and work? Mine is badly faded, but maybe that would work??? Thoughts??? It would be labor intensive but I don't mind that.

W126 cars have electric speedometers. Does the 560 or is it still cable operated?
You would need to match the final drive gearing too as the different drive ratios mean the speedo registers different speeds.
