  • Clock Installation

    A few days ago I aquired a clock form a friend for a 1957 president. The clock is about 2.5 inches across. I know these clocks were used for many years in the lark types (with cosmetic alterations), but my question is:

    How does a clock on a 61'/62'lark mount? is it different than a 57'/58'? On the back of my dashboard there are no mounting screws or anything where the clock goes. Yet this clock that I aquired has to tabs that are supposed to slide over screws that are welded in the back of the dashon a 57'.

    The mannual and parts catalog mention nothing or even show a clock (guess they didn't want to sell many).

    I hope I didn't just thoroughly confuse everyone and thank you in advance for any advice that can be supplied.

    I believe your car's rightful clock had a threaded stud or two on the back of it's case just like the speedo and cluster gage do. The either a 1-piece clamp OR two seperate clamps fit onto those studs and then had nuts tighten up on them until the clamps held tight against the backside of the dash panel.

    Miscreant at large.

      Are you sure it is a Lark clock. It sounds to me to be a clock out of a sedan or wagon. I really don't know if there is a difference but I do know while looking for my clock for my 56 wagon, the wagon and sedan clocks are unique. I am looking at mine right now and it is exactly as you discribe. Does yours have a cream face(57) or a black face(56). Again just a thought because I do not know what a Lark requires. Good Luck.
