    I vote VDO clock if your car is still "period" as far as the gauges....
    One thing for certain, the OBC is useless.

      I like the OBC and find it somewhat useful and wouldn't swap it to something less functional. If you think the clock looks better go for it, I prefer the look of the OBC myself.
      If it's part of a weight savings effort replace it with a blank plate.

        Only thing I use on the OBC is the Temp Gauge and will likely replace that with a period correct VDO temp gauge.

        Mick, I’m running a lot of delete-plates already. I should have mentioned that I plan to replace the radio Deere plate with three VDO gauges.

          I ran that setup for a long time before I gutted my interior. It works out great.
          I used a radio delete plate from 42 Draft Designs.
