    Wondering if anyone has come up with any creative ways to delete a dash clock. Whether it be a personalized item or just filling/shaving the area,I'd like to see some pics. As always, suggestions and opinions are welcome; both serious and humorous. Thanks.

    Thanks! The body is a '51 with '49 front sheet metal. I guess more of it is '49 than I realized. Seriously, thanks for pointing that out.

    There is a mini tach in the clock hole of my '53 Ford. Allows me to run the stock gauges

  6. A truck horn button is what I have seen used before. Aside from the mini tach as has already been mentioned.

    As scrap metal 48 says Ford had a clock delete panel for the 49 and 50 Deluxe models.
    I have one my Grandmother bought new in 1950.

    Thanks for the ideas. I like the tach idea, because there's really no other way to mount one on the dash that would look clean and sleek (when using the factory gauges).
