I used an outfit in Cranbrook BC rebuild a couple clocks for my 1970 cars a number of years ago, but I've never actually installed them. I think they were called Western Wireless, but I'll poke around and see if that's correct.

I looked it up, Western Wireless did 2 for me in 2002, and I've never installed them. But when I redo the dash in my convertible later this summer one will finally get installed. I think I have a couple NOS ones, and likely a couple other used ones kicking around.

How about installing a clock delete plate? There are 1st & 2nd design versions for 1969, and I'm pretty sure I have both.

From the 1 photo, I'd say that's a 1970 clock. 1969's have a blueish hue to them, whereas 1970's are definitely black. I've sent the seller a note asking him.

 Dan, I had both my Safari & Impala clocks converted by " the Clock Works" over the winter, service was extremely fast [ matter of days] & I'm sure they will do a great job on restoring your clock to "original" as well.

 I heard back from the seller, they confirm it's a 1969 clock.

That is a very sharp and clear photo and that is definitely a black background. I know they "confirmed" it is a '69, but why then does the ad say '69-'70 if it is a '69? "Caveat emptor" on this one! I had mine converted to the quartz conversion and it has been going strong for 6 years.

I've found it's often tough to tell the blue background vs black background in photo's, but easy to tell when they're beside each other.    The one in the ebay ad looks about the same hue as the one in the photo's at the start of the thread.   The seller said "This is a 69 clock.  It does, however, fit in a 70."

All bad timing,

I was looking for something else and I was searching "1969 Pontiac NOS"

Saw the clock and remembered the post.

It can be very hard to find what you are looking for anymore.

The rebuilt clock will last a long time and I believe the members who swear by the company.
