Smiths (MA) Clock from a ?

Smiths (MA) Clock

I have been trying find out which car this clock would have been fitted in and despite my best efforts I have failed to track down anything similar. As you can see it has been mounted in a wooden case, but retains the hinges that I assume would have attached it to the dashboard. It is clockwork not electric and I would guess it dates to the 20's or 30's. It measures 12cm square.

I would be grateful for any information you may be able to provide.

Thank you in advance for your help. David Morrison

Mystery old sprint car


I have an old sprint car that I can't figure the year or make, I'm assuming 20s based off radiator overall build and the Polly Gas sticker at the cowl. It has a rambler 6 powering it, thank you in advance for your assistance. 


Best regards
