  • Interior: 54 Commander clock

    Are these as rare as hens teeth? I can't find a picture of one on Goggle to what I should be looking for. I'd like to find one working or not.

    Rare? Yes; but not unobtainium. The same clock was used in both the '53 and '54 Commander in all body styles. The difference in the dash cluster to which it was mounted is insignificant.
    Here's one about to find a home in a '53 cluster, albeit some years ago.

      Thanks you , now I know what to look for. I have to find one cause I don't like a black empty spot among the other gauges.

          Thanks for the link to the instrument clusters. Will have to check it out further when I have a little time to kill.

            Seems like there ought to be quite a few of those gauge clusters available as so many cars have been/are customized in to something else (full custom,race, etc.).
