Yes, they did the clock out of my '68. They did a fabulous job, I am 100% satified. Plus, at about $90 (including a new adjuster knob), they were $20-30 less than Clock Doc. It took about a week.

The new quartz clock holds time really well, I don't think I have messed with the time adjustment for 3 or 4 months. Can't beat that. People at the car shows rave about that "old" clock still working


Bottom line: do it.

Hey, my clock is dead too. Shocker...

Well, I never really cared to fix it, but it would be nice to have everything working..

How much are they to repair the clock to analog movement and how much for quartz movement???

I may still do it.. by the sound of your comments.

The number for these folks is 800 558-2674. I was quoted a price of $89 for conversion to the quartz movement. My stem is also missing. For an additional $21.50 they will replace the stem and knob with one that is very close to original and ship it back to me with a one year warranty. I was advised that it would be about 8 weeks to get the clock back.

Well, after reading all this I thought about the clock in my 67 Impala (the chevelle isn't running right now but its clock doesn't work either). So, I went to the clock repair sites I had bookmarked to price things out and the prices listed above seem typical. I asked my wife if she wanted a working clock for 90 bucks and she said no way. BUT
on the Tachman site was a little info about the type of clocks used and why they go bad. Usually it is due to bad or no lubrication and sometimes a voltage spike. I thought hey, I can fix a bad lube job so last night I took the clock out, disassembled it and sure enough it wouldn't turn due to hardend lubre.
After liberal doses of starting fluid it now works great! I finished the job with some graphite and ultrafine gear oil. After all what did I have to lose?
