Can anybody help with what type of mounting was used on the Kienzle clocks in Mk1 & 2 Ford Escorts? The two I know of are one with a single lug behind the 12, and one with three spring-clips down the sides. I believe the single lug mounting fits in a slot in a black plastic tube and the three spring clips had a grey or black plastic ring fitted from behind to hold the clock into a rebated hole in a dashboard.

There's also at least 3 types of front bezel, all chrome, all black, and chrome sides with black on the inner face that slopes down to the glass.

For example, is this ad correct: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/323549692...8AAOSwi7Vb7DfB

I make that as very similar to the Daimler DS420 Limo (and Hearse) and Triumph 2500TC, except they have all black bezels and light up green.

Several clock options depending on the year/spec.

Fitted to the plastic cage on the passenger side or to the centre console

or to the wooden trimmed dash?

Several options, if you want it totally original you may need to speak to some

of the guys that do concours etc.

That helps a bit.

It's which of these options had the three spring clips, like the Triumph/Jag ones, and which had the single lug behind 12, like the P6 ones, that I'm looking to find out - I have several clocks and want to identify which belongs where?

I'm guessing there's also options on whether they have black, chrome, or black and chrome front bezel rings, and red or white hands, etc. Do some have second hands?.

Got a bit more info on these clocks. The ones I'm looking for homes for are Kienzle type/model numbers 8011, 8013, and 8014. These numbers are inked on the back of the clock, sometimes with what may be a date code - but if it is, it's encrypted a bit.

Models 8013 and 4 are the same fancy face as the ones from the Daimler DS420 Limo, but one's an all chrome bezel and one's all black. 8011 is a more plain face, like the Rover P6 one, and a black and chrome bezel. All are 3 spring clip mounting and light up blue.

So, does anybody recognize those model numbers, e.g. from spares they've got?
