  1. Sorry, all badges in this post have sold and are no longer available. Thanks for your interest!
  2. Just listed a large lot of over 70 vintage car brochures (with a few magazines, etc) on eBay. These range from the 1950s to 1980s and are mostly Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth with some Cadillac, Desoto, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Chevrolet and others Most brochures in this lot have some damage including staining, creases, wrinkling, corner bends, tears / torn off sections, surface scuffing, etc. Covers are separated from the 1958 Desoto brochures. Individual items range from good to poor but all are still nice pieces. Great lot for resale, to re-purpose or for collectors Auction run

  4. Absolutely - my eBay store is https://www.ebay.com/str/classicallydriven Many of the data tags in this post have since sold but some are still available - see link below https://www.ebay.com/str/classicallydriven?_bkw=data+badge
  5. Offering an original Plymouth car radio trim plate with knobs and badge. This has a great vintage look and would be a cool item to re-purpose or potentially restore. A Plymouth expert has identified this as 1949 - 1950 model years. Measures approximately 9" by 13 1/2" Condition: See photos for exact condition. This is a used vintage part and condition reflects this. There is surface wear throughout including scratches, corrosion, finish loss to the emblem, metal pitting, etc. The is some white substance on the back that may be mold - I have not attempted any cleaning but a thoro
  6. Offering an original lot of 2 left and right Mercury Marauder trim pieces. These appear to be window trim and include the "Marauder" letters. A fellow enthusiast has identified these are 1965 parts that go around the C pillar to the rear window (one year only parts that are likely fairly rare as a result) Each is approximately 6" on the short side and 17" on the long side to longest point. Condition: See photos for exact condition. These are used car parts and condition reflects this. They have heavy metal pitting / flaking throughout, as well as chips, scratches and some light co
  7. Offering a spectacular 1940s era architectural rendering of a Ford Dealership - Broadway Motors. The building design is a classic mid-century auto dealership with wonderful curved glass and a prominent sign. Two vintage Ford cars are visible. This is a hand-painted work of art - not a print or copy. Mounted in a period wooden frame without glass. Absolutely stunning! The piece measures approximately 22" by 32" including frame (very large piece - pictured with a large 1.5L water bottle to show size) Condition: This painting has some foxing (brown spotting) throughout on all bl
  8. Offering original UAW-CIO Union membership pins from the 1930s - 1950s. See photos for all available. Beautiful pieces of history The largest measure about 1" in diameter and the smallest are about 3/4" in diameter. All are in good condition with some having light corrosion, slightly bent pins or other wear consistent with age and use. Asking $25 usd each including shipping within North America (no tracking included on 1 but will include tracking on 2 or more). Open to discussing package offers on multiple pieces. Please message with any questions (including to conf
  9. I have available some very rare 1981 Buick Regal 65th Indianapolis 500 Pace Car interior badges. I believe that only 150 of these limited edition cars were made making these exceptionally rare. They are authentic and new old stock - I believe them to be factory seconds to the badges applied to the cars Each measures approximately 1 1/4" by 3 1/2" and has the adhesive strip still on the back. Each car was individually numbered and I have the following numbers available 4 5 6 49 59 66 89 109 119 132 140 144
  10. Thanks all! I have updated the eBay listing to clarify what appears to be missing. As noted in the original listing, this is being sold as-is and may not be complete. The pieces included are still very rare. There are a lot of watchers on this item and I will let the market decide value
  11. Offering an incredible 1920s or early 1930s era Spirit of Liberty hood ornament. Includes the metal lady liberty ornament, 10 American flags and some mounting hardware. Also includes the original box, which is flattened and heavily creased / torn but still has amazing graphics This piece is sold as-found and I am not sure how it fits together or whether any mounting hardware is missing Box measures approximately 4 1/2" by 11" and hood ornament is approximately 9" tall at widest point. Condition: See photos for exact condition. The box has been flattened and has many tears / crease
  12. Thanks @edinmass!! I really appreciate your insights. It's easy to see how this can be mistaken for a print if not viewing in person. This did come from Walter Miller's estate - He was a true gentleman and I've always greatly admired the incredible business and collection he built. I have my own small collection of original design studio and advertising agency art from the 1920s - 1970s and really love this piece. Thrilled to learn it was used in the 1936 brochure.
  13. Thank you everyone for your feedback - I have removed this piece from the frame and happy to report that it is on artists board. Please see the attached for the reverse and also some close ups of the white sections (I am not sure of the type(s) of paint used). The blue mat on the front is glued on and cannot be removed. For provenance, I acquired this in an estate sale from a very prominent collector and leading expert on automotive design and advertising art. I would have been shocked to find this was anything other than an original painting. I just wasn't sure whether it was for
