OLDS Clock


If you want a clock I got this one at the Mecum Auction in Kansas City from Motor Art Gallery. I had to order it. It is big, made in Perryopolis, PA. (around Pittsburgh) and it is all metal. What's really nice about it, it's made like one for a dealership and it is electric no AA battery! The box it came in was about 25x25x25. It has to be put on a screw that goes in a stud, not dry wall. It is hard to see, but the outside is blue-beyond the yellow band,

The price was $350 at the Mecum. Otherwise to order would be that plus $50 shipping. 50 would be about right considering weight/size of box to Missouri via UPS. The clock is 20 in across and 5 inches thick. It took about a month to get it as they had to make it. I think that was because of the Olds logo in the center. I got two phone calls during the month telling me of the progress. It has a one year warranty and if something happens to it they can repair it. It comes with a white cord that's going to reach the average outlet, assuming you have a 9 foot or so ceiling.

That is a nice piece. For me and maybe others it's a little to pricey. If the AA battery variant Better fits your budget I've taken the cover off them and added an image of whatever suits me to the background of the clock to make it a custom unit. Nice but probably the only comparison to your clock is they are both clocks.

it it started as a joke at work I added an image of an N series tractor to a lab clock and from there I just went off and changed every clock w different things like the olds logo, a beach scene etc. my garage clock is a stock image of the same bike as I own. When done carefully it looks original and I have gotten some positive comments on them.

Yes, they are nice clocks with real neon instead of regular lighting. The shop is in my hometown & they have a good selection of different ones, including anything custom you may want.
Maybe a nice 442 clock design is in order.

The first link is from a different state, but copied the website description from Image Time (the company that makes them), so I'm not sure if they may be a distributor.

The second link is from PA & mentions Image Time in the description, so it definitely is.

It looks like the maker sells at wholesale himself and then has distributors that mark them up. Either way I like mine. It was shipped out of Smock, PA., according to the tracking sheet.
