I have the optional dash clock in my 68 Coupe and it doesnt work. I have been trying to find a replacement for it with no luck. This is a hard to find part, I could keep looking on Ebay and wait forever to get a good one. But I searched the archives here and discovered that some people have taken the clocks apart cleaned them and had them working again. Can this be done to a 68 clock? All the posts were about '69's and 70's mach1 cars with rally pacs.

I will put a want ad on the classifieds but Im not holding my breath!

Mine didn't come with a clock, but I just replaced the panel with a white-faced tach, it looks awesome and was very easy. Sorry this didn't help you.

If it's anything like the '69 clock, clean the contacts before you replace it. Did that to mine and it works great after being frozen for 6 years. There was an article in M&F a few years ago that details the operation

There are lots of clocks on e-bay just like the one you have -- well, let's say that at any one time there'll be at least one. I monitor them just to keep an eye on the silly prices. If the seller claims it's in perfect working condition, it usually goes for around $100.

Best deal I ever saw-old article in MMonthly. A quartz clock found in 70's Toyota Celica and adapted to fit the 67/8 dash cluster. Neat....andcheap! Guy changed the hands and put on the original Mustangs.
