The most common problem in 1963-1982 Corvettes is not something major like the engine or transmission. No, the most common problem in C2 and C3 Corvettes is a clock that does not work. While it may seem like a minor issue, it can be a major annoyance.
The electric clocks included in 1963-1982 Corvettes all seem determined to self destruct. If, by chance, your clock is still working, it’s probably so slow that it’s useless. Thankfully, there’s an easy, affordable fix – and you can do it yourself.
The remedy is a 1963-1982 Corvette Clock Quartz Movement Kit from Zip. You’ll also want to consider needle paint, bezel paint and a new lens to complete your project. Follow along with our tech article 1963-1982 Corvette Clock Quartz Rebuild as we convert the clock in a 1964 Corvette from the old electric movement to the modern quartz movement. You’ll find step-by-step instructions with pictures so you can get the project done yourself. The whole conversion takes about 2 to 3 hours, a little mechanical aptitude and a few tools. But having a clock that keeps accurate time is well worth the effort.
The fist step is to remove your clock as per your Corvette shop manual’s instructions. We always recommend that you have your shop manual close by whenever starting any DIY project. A few additional tools and supplies will be needed for the conversion: small pliers, needle nose pliers, flat blade screwdriver, 5/16″ nut driver and a paint brush. Mechanical aptitude is always a plus, but remember, you have our 1963-1982 Corvette Clock Rebuild Technical Article to guide you every step of the way!

Are you tired of fighting your 1968-1982 C3 Corvette’s door glass? When you roll up your window, does it go up at a severe angle, unable to completely close? Or perhaps you’ve experienced the most embarrassing of all: you start to roll it up only to have it drop down into the door with a resounding thud or worse, to the sound of breaking glass. It’s annoying..it’s infuriating…but thankfully, it can be easily fixed with just a few hours and the right Corvette Parts!
These problems can all be attributed to broken window and regulator roller assemblies. There are five nylon rollers that attach to the glass and window regulator and roll in the door and glass run channels. Those rollers allow the window to roll up and down freely. When they break, the glass has a tendency to roll up at angles or not at all, depending on how many rollers are broken.
Follow along with our tech article “1968-1982 Corvette Window Regulator Roller Rebuild” as we get the passenger door glass back on track in our project ’73. The article includes step-by-step instructions and photos that will show you how to replace the faulty window regulator roller assembly in your C3 Corvette.
To complete the project, you’ll need front and rear glass run rollers, regulator rollers, glass bushings and washers and two anti-rattlers. You’ll also need a few basic hand tools, a helper and a shop manual for your year Corvette. Within just a few hours, your windows will be back on track and your Corvette will be back on the road, where it belongs!
