Default car clock

Does anyone know about original accessory car clocks are available for the Model A? I had a Mansfield Wiz mirror clock for awhile which no longer works and I'm told can't be repaired.

You can get reproduction clock mirrors from the vendors.

On this, I took a cheep way to go! Found a very small quartz clock that had a stickum on backing, installed a slightly larger Model A mirror glass (from Mikes AForable) and it works and looks good to me and keeps accurate time and no winding! But then again we are all different and after different ways to enjoy our cars!

I do it the real old-fashioned way. I have a wrist watch.

Check out Westclox Auto Clocks, they put out a couple different styles of mirror clocks as well as some that mount to the header. If you do a search on eBay there is usually an original ad or two for sale that will give you an idea of the different clocks they offered.

Check out worthpoint. They have some of the old Westclox listed. I have one in my town sedan. They need to be wound about every day..... But it's cool
