I’ve been pulling car clocks from junked cars for several years now, gathering them for a seriously unnecessary sculpture project, and now I’ve got 50 or so of the things in boxes in my office. We started this series with this 1980 Toyota Cressida fluorescent digital clock, made by Jeco, and now I’m going to make it a regular series. Today’s clock is also a Jeco, but this one is a handsome analog unit with a weird conical plastic faceplate. Before you make the jump and see the answer, guess what year/make/model car produced this clock!
It was a red-letter day when I found a super-rare Corona clock in the junkyard; the lowly Corollas and trucks had a different, less snazzy unit (if they had the clock option at all). This one works, too— a rarity among analog junkyard clocks, even the Japanese ones. Be honest now and tell us what you though it was.
