I have one of these and searching for one more.
I had two, but one is lost.
These are from the Art Deco era off of a ’56 I think.
It’s a front fender emblem, 14” in length, pewter, about an 1/8” thick.

Found it. 47-52 Fender script. Doesn't mention measurements, though

Edit: It does. Lists 16X4X4. I seriously doubt you want one 4in thick.
I'd like to have that one, but their price is a bit steep..

Agreed. But as a casual follower of your build thread, what difference will $125 make in the grand scheme of things? At least, that's what I've told my wife once or twice...:p

Actually, this comment may fit better in the Open Letter thread...

On a serious note, is this for use on your build? Custom vinyl decals may be an option.

well I could show you the spreadsheet…
it’s precisely that “in for a penny, in for a Pound” hook that drags us down the rabbit hole…

Not to worry, not sticking these on the V fenders! But they are related to the build.

Custom vinyl decals may be an option.
¡NO! God, NO!!!! Please!

Actually, the specific emblem I need is specifically 1956 ONLY (of course!) EDIT, I was wrong... some sources show the emblem I need to be 47-'52 applications and '56 they didn't actually HAVE the Cadillac script on the Fenders.

1953-4-5:




1956:
1947~1952 ?




1957-8:


Note the first letter is the easiest tell.

That might look pretty good on your valve covers.

Yeah that was one of the criteria for the valve cover selection (and drove the remote coil mount decision); besides having the vents and baffles, they had to work with these badges. These were the only valve covers that had the vents AND used these really small diameter washers.

Heritage appreciation! Where do you plan to relocate the coils, when I installed the B15, I had absolutely no room anywhere I could imagine to relocate the packs, currently my beautiful 'orange' covers with the branding are buried under brackets and packs?

there is apparently enough between the blower and the firewall when using the Maggie unit. Vengeance Racing has some pics of a white V that they built with the coils mounted there. I talked with the guy with Vengeance (yes it took some time to get the call-back) and he was helpful except about the coil mount. He said they made them custom for their builds and no, he would not sell me one or even provide a pic.
So, I’ll fab it myself but I did buy some coil mount bracket kit as a starting point but I really won’t know until I get the Maggie installed.
The pics I’ve seen, there is lots of room. There’s some room behind the LSA blower when you’ve got the ZL1 lid but I didn’t ever measure it.

Make sure to post a picture when you get to that point.
And speaking of pictures... are you gonna not tell us about that cool-ass strut brace? Hmmmm?

I found an emblem. A guy had one on eBay a little while back but I thought it was over priced. Then it was gone, of course, and I had the regret for hesitating. It popped back up so I bought it.

If you need any material (steel, angle, bits, taps maybe more...) lemme know. I have easy access to that stuff on a normal basis depending on my job
