I purchased this Quaker State neon spinner a few months ago. I disassembled it last weekend to clean & repair it. When I removed the face I uncovered another face that had never seen the light of day. Can anyone tell me why the logo design had been changed? Any information would be appreciated>

what is underneath is apparently earlier & by the looks of what was in there you needed it,
I've also had mine apart without the extra - cool clock .. ... cool

It was common for companies to change graphics/designs.

Such transitions are useful for dating items.

Let us see the completed project when you are finished working on it! With that nice original face under the others it should look great....

face cleaned up very nice, type set is a little different than mine .. ... cool
color on numbers is reversed with your spinner having more connections too center,
hands are also different..

Personally, I've found the Quaker State stuff quite difficult to date. Just not enough change in the logo.
Here are three tombstone signs from magazine ads for reference.
1928
1942
1947
Anyway, beautiful clock!!!! I have to wonder, why didn't you go with the seemingly older more graphic face?
