I'm resorting parts that have stored for several years for my 67 convertible. I came across a clock in a bag with the dash cluster. I didn't remember having one. Wouldn't be the first time my memory has failed me!! I assume it goes in the middle smaller circle? Could be I picked it up after the fact to add to the car. Anybody had one of these things "quartzed"?

The wire is there already, so you can just add these if not orginally there. I have also done the quarts conversion on one that was rusted beyond repair and it keeps better time than my origianal working one. It was eazy to do and I found the instructions to be pretty good.

I'd like to know the same thing about the quartz conversion since the one in my dash isn't working anymore...

Thanks,
Mike

I believe I got it from Paddock or California Mustang.

I did the conversion when I found a decent clock here in the VMF classifieds. I've very happy with it and converting it took about 5 minutes. Actually, watching the instructional video took longer than the whole installation. I got mine from ...."Instrument Services Inc". #800-558-2674.

Here's a short story for you. I had my Shelby's clock so-called "Restored" by a fellow out east. Well, 6 months later, it ain't working...again. So I bought a Quartz conversion kit and put it in. Always works, 8 years now. How ever, if you can believe this, a SAAC concours judge busted me for the Quartz clock, how did he know? Well, if you stare at the second hand for about 20 seconds, it has a slightly different movement then the old original clock. How silly is that? I kept the working Quartz clock.
