Corvette Clock Rebuild and Restoration
Corvette Clocks 1953-1962
Unfortunately, we do not repair 53-62 clocks due to the lack of repair parts available. We do offer new 1958-1962 reproduction clocks with quartz movements for purchase. Shop our Parts store for details.
Corvette Clocks 1963-1967
Chevrolet Motor Division contracted with Borg Instruments to supply clocks for the new Corvette in 1963. Borg was well equipped to supply a quality component. A leading manufacturer for the automotive and aviation industries, Borg supplied a beautiful clock that closely resembled the new gauges.

The original mechanical clock movements used technology from the thirties. Cars were disposable and the movement would last a few years if you were lucky. We all remember that! Corvette Specialties of MD West can restore your clock with the original mechanical mechanism or a modern quartz movement. We recommend the quartz conversion to all owners that are not having the car judged in an NCRS or Bloomington-type event. Keep in mind, the quartz conversion does not modify the configuration of your clock! The clock can easily be rebuilt with the standard mechanical movement at a later date if you desire.
Our service consists of complete disassembly, restoration of the case, bezel, face, and pointers, and we also install a new lens. We will rebuild or replace the original mechanical movement. Judging not in the plans for your Corvette? We strongly recommend a quartz conversion. You will surely find a quartz conversion will be much more reliable, and the only noticeable difference is a smooth hand movement rather than the original “ticking”.
$180.00* Rebuilt Standard Mechanical Movement
$180.00* Quartz Movement Conversion (Recommended for non-show cars, as it is much more reliable.)
*Additional parts may be required.

WHEN SENDING PARTS, PLEASE BE SURE TO INCLUDE OUR RESTORATION ORDER FORM.
IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTES: When shipping gauges and other items for restoration, please wrap the items securely! We suggest wrapping each item in bubble wrap individually and cushioning the wrapped bundles within the box with more packaging. When shipping open-face gauges, protect the gauge face by taping the gauge face-down to a piece of cardboard and wrap with bubble wrap. Note that some pointer bases may stick up beyond the edge of the face so the cardboard may need to have a small hole to accommodate it. Be sure to fill the package completely with cushioning material, especially the corners, as any movement within the box can cause damage. Do not use packing peanuts as they allow too much movement within the package. Ensure your items are for a replacement value you feel comfortable with. Please note that even if you insure your items, if the carrier determines the package was not packed properly they may dispute your damage claim.
