  1. Yes, I am slowly listing and selling some items from this collection - there are many more still available that are not listed. I posted here seeking information rather than sale but am open to discussing if anyone is interested in them
  2. Very interesting! G.M. Ross was definitely a very talented designer and there are a very wide range of vehicles and body styles in this collection including many commercial trucks
  3. Thank you! Based on additional searches, this seems to be "De Forenede Automobilfabrikker" or Thrige https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrige_(automobile) The overall lot is a mix of cars and commercial trucks, as well as a few ships
  4. Hi all, I recently acquired a large collection of original car and truck design blueprints and some drawings from the late 1920s-1930s. All signed with the name G.M. Ross. I acquired them from Germany but they appear to originate from Denmark (Danish text) Does anyone have any information on the coachbuilder / company / designer? Some examples attached but there are many more in the collection Thanks, Mike
  5. Sorry, all badges in this post have sold and are no longer available. Thanks for your interest!
  6. 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 runs for less than a week and opening bid is just over $2 per piece including shipping within North America: https://www.ebay.com/itm/363329049084 Thanks for your interest, Mike
  7. I have available some vintage 1970s era metal license plate frames - both novelty pieces and car dealership. I have multiple copies available of some. Asking $65 usd each including shipping in North America with tracking. Open to package offers or can reduce the price if you are ok to ship without tracking. Worldwide shipping available at extra cost. Message for details or to arrange purchase Regards, Mike
  8. 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
  9. 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 thorough cleaning will be required. This piece is sold as-is and may be missing parts required to make it operational. Still a great vintage item overall Asking $84.99 including shipping within North America (Due to weight, postage is a large portion of this selling price). Worldwide shipping available at extra cost. See my eBay listing below for more photos and information: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Plymouth-Radio-Trim-Plate-Metal-Original-1949-1950-Metal-Authentic/392919095250?hash=item5b7bcd97d2:g:5EgAAOSw4O5dVG4M
  10. 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 corrosion. It appears that mounting pins have broken off. Still hard to find original parts See details and more photos in my eBay listing below: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-Mercury-Marauder-Trim-Parts-Badge-Emblem-Window-Trim-Chrome-Original/363077968127?hash=item54892220ff:g:F3MAAOSwj39d7SKO Asking $59.99 including tracked shipping in North America. Worldwide shipping at extra cost. Note that most of the item cost is postage.
  11. 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 blank space. There are some scratches on the frame and art piece. Asking $1,250 usd including shipping anywhere in North America and listed now on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/363128925669 Serious offers considered if this piece does not sell in the first week.
  12. 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 confirm condition of individual pieces) or to arrange purchase.
