Both 1955 (6 volt positive ground) and 1956 (12 volt
negative ground) T-bird clocks were manufactured
exclusively by Motochron and appear identical in
cosmetic appearance. These clocks can be serviced or
converted to a quartz movement. Cosmetic restoration
is also available.

This clock is the same as was used in the full-size '56
Ford car. Most were produced by Borg. Some Westclox
clocks produced for the '56 Ford have found their way
into the '57 Birds. We can restore either clock
movement to original specs (provided the original
movement is intact and serviceable), or update your
clock to a modern quartz movement. Although Borg and
Westclox clocks appear similar, most parts are not
interchangeable between the two.

These clocks were mostly manufactured by Borg,
although a few Motochron clocks exist. We can
restore your original clock movement to original
specs (provided the movement is intact and
serviceable), or update it to a modern quartz
movement. All three years used the same clock
casing and movement with changes only in the
coloration of the dial.

These clocks were supplied by Westclox and utilized an
early ('61-'62) and a later ('62-'63) style clock movement.
Although the two versions appear identical on the surface,
the two mechanisms are not interchangeable. Since there
are variables in the cost to service each, you may need to
determine which version you have. A simple method is to
check the color of the power terminal insulating grommet
on the back of the clock casing. A pink grommet signifies
an earlier movement, a black grommet indicates the later
type.

We still have a limited number of original equipment
'64-'66 NOS "Borg" mechanical clock movements
available! These are new movements which have never
been installed in a clock and carry a full 1 year warranty.
Since these movements are no longer being
manufactured, once our limited inventory is depleted,
they will no longer be available. Please inquire as to
price and availability.

clock movement to original specs (provided the
movement is intact and serviceable), or update it to a
modern quartz movement. Although Borg and

We service Thunderbird clocks made through
the 1980's. Since many variations can exist
within a specific model year (including large,
small, quartz and mechanical variations), it is
best to contact us for service options and
pricing pertaining to your individual clock.
