1967 chevy impala electrical speedometer

Basically my speedometer is broken and I'm looking to replace it.
I'm going to put a Auto Meter designer black quad gauge in replace of the gas gauge so along with that I'm going to put a designer black speedometer and tachometer, the only problem is that the 5" speedometer for the designer black series is electrical only.
Do I need some kind of adapter/sending unit?
Because right now the speedometer is mechanical and it needs to cross over to electrical for this to work.
I did find a adapter but I have no idea if it'll work for me its - item number 5291 under Auto Meter.

You can use a sending unit or convert your transmission over to electric by installing 4L60 parts installed in your TH350 or PowerGlide. You just have to match the square wave reluctor to match the one Autometer used (I can not remember if it was the eight pulses per revolution or the four pulses per revolution as GM changed over at some point). A sending unit can be purchased for about $80 bucks from these guys:
