Just wanted to thank Mr. Bybee for fixing my radio and speaker---He does beautiful work!

I got it back today and installed it and just had to take her out for a spin-- it sounds great!

Thank you Fred!

He does! I had him rebuild an NOS speaker and also bought a restored radio from him for my '64 Spyder. Beautiful work, fair pricing.

I too, just received back my FC Clock. Had him install a Quartz movement. This weekend I will be painting the outer housing and later mounting it on the dash in the stock position.
Fred did a fantastic job. He even repainted the clock hands. Great detail to his work!thumbs up

Wait, there is a clock guy here? Can someone share the details please?

I found some small battery operated round German movements on the google. Was going to try this rather than the $80.00 replacement movement.

But I found a little clock insert at a garage sale for like $3 or so (might have been less I got a whole bag of stuff for $5 including a box with abou t30 rolls of different colored electrical tape - score

I just popped the works out of some sort of commemorative surround and packed the inside of the clock housing with pieces of paper towels and whallah!

Does the new quartz movement use the stock face and winder?

Here is mine, functionally it is the same although its like the rest of my clocks in my life it is an Hour and 8 minutes ahead since I refuse to change the time in the fall.
