I find that once I set the dimmer on a new car I never readjust it.

All (I think) are three wire. The same dimmer is used on the '70s cars also. Earlier are rheostats, around mid '70s they changed to a much slimmer solid state that doesn't heat up.

Yeah, if only $15 get it.
Ahh I see that the 620 used a 2 wire until '78 when it went to a 3 wire solid state. Don't know if the two can be used for the same thing, but I expect so with some wiring. The two wire just add resistance (which will have to dissipate some lost heat) the solid state is more compact and transistorized.
3 wires. One is ground. One goes to power. One goes to all lamps on the ground side.The other side of all lamps go to power.
