I have a 58 Silver Hawk that has been in my family since day 1. It has a "hole" in the dash to the right of the speedo. From what I have been told, it had a clock that had stopped working and was sent in for repair- but never came back. Does anyone here have suggestions as to where to find one? At this point, I don't even care if it works-I'm just tired of looking at the blank space!

The hole can be filled by a clock, a tachometer, or a delete plate. Here is what a delete plate looks like.36303

I put a tach in mine-I don't remember the part #,but it is a Stewart Warner from Summit[looks very near original.]

Here is the tach that I installed where the clock-delete plate used to live. It is a Teleflex 82288P, and is close to the original (which I had but could not find a sending unit.) Incidentally, the clock-delete plate and the original SW gauges are for sale.

I might be interested in the delete plate... How much?

How about $20 plus shipping?

That would probably work, now I just need to decide if I want to go that route or find a clock... I'll let you know. Thanks for the response!

There is a clock on Ebay (but in sad condition): http://www.ebay.com/itm/Studebaker-Hawk-dashboard-clock-1956-mfg-Geo-W-Borg-Corp-55-/301242435691?pt=Vintage_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item462372c86b&vxp=mtr

But there are also good ones out there, not too difficult to obtain a working one.

The original Borg clock in my 57 Golden Hawk works flawlessly since many years and I like the tick tock :)
