I've reached the point where I'm Dead-Serious about selling off my Clock Business & entering the Music Biz full-time.

A Branson MO Mover-&-Shaker's Daughter JUST recorded Andy Karpinsky's & My "IT'S O.K. TO CRY" last week..& called Saturday night to Congratulate Us. He's ALSO expressed interest in buying my Ansonia Street Clock out front..BUT hasn't made the deal HAPPEN yet/My Creditors are..shall we say.."Getting Anxious."

So..after 6 weeks of being "dangled"..I'm now seeking out Middlemen to find me Another Buyer..for an Incredibly RARE Object/'Tain't gonna go too-cheaply.

But..ya only need to find that ONE Person who wants to Make It Happen...& I'm frankly too-dern-busy to do it myself.

So..HERE's What's For Sale/YES I can send ya Pics..just email me at TampaStan@hotmail.com or Call Me at (813)-240-0301/(813)-876-2707. Finder's Fee: $500-for-you/$500-for-JPF..(Or ya can donate ALL of it to JPF & I'm sure Brian'll Appreciate That!) (Which IS what I'd planned on doing if MY Deal'd worked out earlier.)

Here come the Clock Specs:
19 1/2 Feet Tall (Tallest Street Clock Ever MADE) and about 1000 lbs of Cast Iron. Long-Ago Sandblasted & Primered-well...it's JUST had its 4th New Paint Job, a nice Blue-Green Aquamarine-Bronz-y Finish.

There are only FOUR of these known to exist..2 Up North, 1 in Seattle, & Mine. Mine's been a Tampa Landmark in front of my Clock Shop these last 25 years. With NO Tampa Buyer Interested I know of...& me with an Unsold House that's cost me dearly..& me gettin' old enough to cash it all-out/retire..& Clock Biz not doing what it Oughta..this clock sale is Our "Plan 'B'" at the moment.

I have the Original Movement & Weight, & Pendulum. Also a NEW 2-year old Synchronous Electric Boston-Gear Movement made just 2 years ago, by a 2nd Generation Tower Clock Restorer, Frank Jackson Jr. (The Former's good to A-Minute-A-Day..the Latter Movement's DEAD-Accurate as long as normal 110V AC keeps flowing.)

This Street Clock is one of the Earliest-Made, also, having 2 wooden dials/NO Bezel-Glass to deal-with. (Clock Shop's about a block away from a Titty-bar/never had to replace Dials..heh!)
These are made from Marine Plywood..Numerals copied from Reprint Ansonia 1886-7 Catalogue. Hands are Authentic Repros, as-well..Have the Original Dial Gears, Hand-Hubs & Counterweights.

Two Versions were made of this.."Smooth" & "Ornate"...This One's The Latter..it's Quite-Impressive from Quite-a-Distance..and All The Street-Clocks-Copied-&-On-The-Market So-Far are about 16-to-16 1/2 feet tall/NO Molds exist on this one. None have been for-sale the last 25 Years, either..to my knowledge. (IF you'd like to Copy This One...you'd recoup your investment with probably Two Sales.) But...I'd prefer it NOT be copied/it then STAYS Rare for The Long-Term.

So..here comes the Drumroll/Cymbal Crash... Price: $50K. I'll hire the Crane & De-Mount it. You supply the Truck..needs a 2 1/2 ton/WILL slide-in & fit. I'll truck it to Wherever @ $150-a-day/plus Gas...or leave it in your hands.

So..Folks...If you know some Bigwig at City Hall..or a Mall or Label Owner..or ANYONE who'd like Something-Special in his Back or Front Yard...(or "Beside-The-Pool")...heh...Have WE got a Clock For You!

It's "One of A Kind"--FOR A "One-Of-A-Kind".

More Details?

Stan

Are you kidding??? This 100 year old clock cost only 50 grand???

The rarity of this jewel can fetch more than that. Send me the picture and I will post that in ebay. WE will start the bidding at 50k plus shipping.

Whatever exceeds from the amount of yours lets donate it to JPF.

Heres my email lynman3@yahoo.com

HiYa Doc!

Been told it was worth about $60K a few years back. "The Competition's" NEW-Ones, cast from Old Ones. For about $30K you can get a nice NEW Powdercoated ALUMINUM Re-pop...(of the SMALLER Ones.) So...heh..THIS one's only gonna appeal to Someone Seriously-Interested in a Rare OLD One. And..the New Ones have decreased The Market for Old Ones.

No Problemo...BUT...I'm NOT wanting to post it on Ebay..because I dunno IF it'll reach The Minimum "Reserve" there...AND..ya get to pay 'em Something even IF it DOESN'T...Best-I-Recollect.

I'd far-prefer dealing One-On-One with An Interested Buyer. (Got a customer in today with a 40-Foot-Morgan..told HIM about the clock..& I'm currently fixing his Ship's Clock. He's a biggie at the Tampa Yacht Club...MIGHT just keep this Giant in Tampa...yet. If So...I'll send the $1K to JPF, as-promised.)

WILL send ya pics..but No Ebay..(Please?) WILL sendya the $500 Finder's Fee if ya can find me that Buyer... &..heh..it Only Takes One.

Best Wishes, Big Guy-Hug,
Stan

PS: Anyone interested...ya can take a quick peek at <CDBaby.com/TampaStan/1>...It's on the Cover of my Freshman CD, "Don't You Ever Grow Old"/(That's Me with the Beer Can hangin' on it..for Scale!) ;-)> (Maybe drop the /1 if they've changed search format lately...)
