Beginners Question Exclamation

Early Dash's seem to have been the White Block style speedo (lets call this Style B), mixed with the Early Font clock (Style A)

The 15w DLX (Oct 1951):

The Hornbecker DLX (Feb 52):
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Hornbecker's has the Early Font style clock (Style A), so the speedo/clock face styles didn't match until the demise of the split window beetle?
ie until the clock was BD DLX only?

(these are bus build dates, not speedo/clock date stamps)

20-053503 (June 53 - still White Block & Early Font)
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


20-056313 (July 53 - both White Block)
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


20-074455 (Feb 54 - Both Modern Font)
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


OK, so the equipment may have been swapped about - but this looks to be the pattern

I agree with RockStocks chart, My april 1953 has the early split style clock, with a 29 part number and seems to be appropriately date stamped to the car. I think it was a mid year 53 change, when they ran out the old clocks on the shelves.

Beginner Embarassed

I have a lame excuse in that the speedo in an early bus is the block type and i thought the clock would be the same Embarassed
After seeing that one sell at Bad Camberg, i'm just glad i have the right clock for my bus

Chris, you are the font of all (font) knowledge.

I'll check to see if the clocks on the 51 DLX are date stamped when I go to the garage tomorrow.

Rich.

It seems that deluxe owners are far more interested in having every single correct part before they'll even entertain the idea of driving their bus.......
