Its been a while since CC did a Clue – maybe we don’t do them anymore? Perhaps I missed the memo?
But, from time to time, they are fun, and if you’ve got the time, can you identify where this comes from?
A Porsche 356?
+1 – probably early 50’s. Clock is behind the mirror. (I found the clock by googling it) – car is a split coupe.
We don’t google for these things. It takes the fun out of it. Just FYI, you obviously didn’t know.
I understood that a link was prohibited, not looking for something to compare with. Most clues are hopeless….
Alvis Speed 25
Ive seen one of these mirrors but not on the car it belongs to, Now I get to find out what awesome.
Maybe it’s my worsening eyesight… or maybe I’m just dumb… but I’m not even sure what I’m supposed to be looking at here. Why is a painted clock dial seemingly hovering in space over some car seats? Are the seats a reflection in a rearview mirror? If so, why would a car’s rearview have a clock in the middle of it?
I think its a real clock embedded in a mirror. Not sure what car it is, but it appears to be a very primitive version of a head-up display.
Phinney Walker seems to be THE name of vintage automobile clocks. So it could be an after market product or a dealer installed option as well as a factory installed option. Which car it belongs to? I have no idea.
Because when you’re checking to see the cars behind you, you might as well find out what time it is also. Anyway, some old British or European car. With a back seat. The gasket around the windshield looks prewar. Or just British. No later than early ’50’s. The type face looks prewar too.
OK, I give up.
007’s Aston Martin?
1955 Sunbeam mk3. I can say that with absolute certainty, due to my vast wealth of knowledge and my fast advancing age. Besides that, I matched up the picture to the recent post.
Very nice ! .
I like Art Deco so this Autoclock really jumps out to me .
There was a time when mechanical mirror clocks were common accessories , I’ve had several over the decades .
Looking at the reflected seats I imagine this is some English car but I have nary a clue which one it is .
