Which car would these "Pontiac" Script Chrome Emblems be for?

Recommended Posts

Hey there, Does anyone have info on these emblems? Found in the back seat of a plain style 2 door 1953 Pontiac with little additional chrome, which they seemed to fit the front fenders on it. Looked online and can't find any specifics on these guys... Do they only fit 1953 or do they fit other years?

 

Thank yous!

Jamie

From reference books that I have it looks like 1951/1952 used this emblem on the front doors and 1953 used them on the front fenders.  In both cases it was for the base models without the chrome spears running down the sides.  You see more vehicles with the spears so not as many examples of these emblems.

This is exactly the information I was looking for. Thank you so much Lee! I looked for too many hours online in the past few days trying to get exact data on these two. Any idea what they might be worth or know anyone who might be interested in making an offer on them? ;) ha ha Check out the pic of the 1953 Pontiac these emblems came off of.

 

Thanks again!

As far as value, I'm sure there are others who can probably give a better estimate than I can but the various Pontiac newsletter classifieds show 1950's NOS trim or emblems going for around $40.  Other than pitting your emblems appear to be in good condition (not broken and studs intact) so they are candidates for restoring.

 

I do not know of anyone at the moment who is looking for those specific emblems but if you are interested in selling and would like I can have an ad put into the Early Times Chapter newsletter of POCI or the Oakland-Pontiac Worldwide Chapter newsletter of AACA.

 

I personally think the emblems would look nice cleaned up and attached to wooden plaques for display but then again I do not have a car that needs these emblems.

 

The car pictured is a little rough but there is quite a bit of salvageable parts.

Thanks lalautze,

 

I appreciate your extra effort, but I do like these emblems and if I couldn't sell them for anything more than a couple twenties, then they will stay with my collection of vintage auto parts. he he Just figured that since I had such a hard time finding any information on these two on the internet, they might have been a rare pair of emblems. My boss has so many antique cars and trucks on his farm. It is pretty exciting diving into the piles of auto parts he and his brother removed from cars before they crushed them to sell as scrap metal. I'll post more interesting items when I get a chance to go gallivanting the junk yard again! ;)

 

Thanks again eh,

Your welcome.  Keeping them for your collection sounds like a great plan as I would do the same.  They are nice emblems to have, somewhat rare but not worth a lot at the end of the day to most people.

Do you still have the 1952 pontiac emblems. I am working on a friends car and just noticed the RH side door emblem is missing. I did a search and came up with what you have

your pontiac name emblems are 1953 year only, basic model known as "chieftain special" only, no deluxe model except i have seen the right side one used on station wagon tail gate.
