  1. Very interesting - thanks everyone for continuing to post suggestions. I'm starting to agree that this is likely a one-off body (or extremely low production) as this is the first time the AACA forum hasn't been able to provide a definitive identification for me. - Mike
  2. Offering some great vintage 8" x 10" photographs of 1930s-1940s era Ford and Mercury models. All are in good to excellent condition for their age with small creases, corner wear or small stains to some. Happy to provide condition details on specific pieces. Asking $25 usd each including shipping within North America (no tracking on 1-2 photos, tracking included on 3 or more). Worldwide shipping available at extra cost. Photos available: 1938 Ford 1939 Ford (2 different) 1939 Mercury (5 different, 1 is a photo of an illustration) 1940 Mercury Eight (2 different) 1941 Mercury (3 different) 1942 Mercury (2 different) 1942 Ford (2 different) 1946 Mercury (4 different) 1947 Mercury (5 different) 1949 Mercury 1949 Meteor Thanks for your interest, Mike
  3. Very interesting - thanks everyone for the suggestions! Some good possible direction but still nothing definite as to the make / model
  4. Thanks everyone for your suggestions so far! Very much appreciated. I acquired this photo from Germany so it does make sense that it would be a European vehicle (though always possible it could still be North American). I'll update here if I find anything concrete
  5. Offering on eBay a huge mixed assortment of vintage car and truck badges, emblems, trim pieces, etc. Some pieces may be for machinery or other types of vehicles. These date from approximately the 1940s to 1980s and are a mix of different American and European makes / models This is a lot that would be ideal for someone with talent and creativity to re-purpose - Almost all badges in this lot are damaged or broken (in multiple pieces, missing letters or parts, chips, scratches, dents, corrosion, etc). They are sold as-is and I have not attempted any sorting, cleaning or restoration. Many would polish up nicely with some effort. There are lots of pieces here with great vintage looks, including many letters in interesting fonts that could be used to spell out words, turned into jewellery or displays, etc. Possibilities are endless.

  6. I recently acquired the vintage framed photo attached and hoping for some help identifying the car. It looks to be an early piece pre 1910 but I acquired it as-is without any information. Does anyone know the year / make / model of this vehicle? Thanks in advance! Mike

Great pieces to display, re-purpose or possibly put back to use on a classic car. Each is approximately 6" on the short side and 17" on the long side to longest point.
