Im offering an awesome original 1940s HC Sinclair neon clock. It is in need of a restoration. Ill try and describe it as best I can.
I acquired the clock about 15 years ago from a friend. Her father had worked for Sinclair and then Conoco for many years. When I got the clock it did light up. However, it does not now.
I had it plugged in and The neon just stopped one day. He cut the plug off and was going to rewire it but never got back to it.
The clock kept time when it was plugged in as well. When I got the clock it also had a crack in the glass. Over time it has gotten broken. I still have all the glass. They do make reproduction glass for them though.It measures 20 across and 5 1/2 deep. As you can see in the pics it was originally HC Sinclair but had been changed at some point to Conoco. It should be a fairly easy restoration. I dont want to guarantee you anything but it should just need a new cord and transformer for the neon to work. There are no breaks or cracks in the neon tubing.
So my lack of time to restore it is your chance to finally own a piece of Rare HC Sinclair history. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
