broken oil pressure gauge on ef ghia?

hello ppl,
i have just recently aquired a ef ghia,
the problem is with the oil pressure gauge,
with car and ignition off it is reading no pressure (0) but
with the ignition on but motor off the gauge
will read full oil pressure (7) with the warning light on

but when i start the motor the guage will remain on 7
and the pressure light will go off

is this normal?shouldn't the gauge be moving or something?

the dealership where i brought the car is telling me this is normal

is it ?
