As listed in another thread I scored a NOS looking clock for my Bel Air project. What I am wondering now is is there a source for finding the retaining bracket to mount the clock? I know there is 2 different styles of clocks but IIRC they both use the same bracket to hold them in.

Can these be bought aftermarket or do I have to try to find one on a scrapped car with a smashed clock maybe?

Any help would be appreciated

If at first you don't suceed, destroy all evidence you ever tried...

I'd be surprised if there's an aftermarket part made. I have both the Borg and Westclock clocks and I'm pretty sure the brackets that hold them into the cluster. One of them, and I've forgotten which, is "deeper" than the other, so the brackets were different. If you can send me the measurements of the clock you're using, I can check to see what I have.

My clock is the Borg clock. It measures just under 3 1/8" from the face of the clock to the top of the mounting point.

I could be mistaken but I was of the understanding the mounting bracket was the same as they were the same depth to the mounting point...one had the standoff while the other didn't...but I could be mistaken.

Sorry for the delay but it's been a crazy month.
