I love that poster. You are very lucky to have found one in such good condition. The colors are perfect to illustrate the first year Custom. Was it mounted on heavy cardboard like the Ford posters of the period?

 

That ornament first appeared on the 1939 Continental prototype and the Trylon & Perisphere were designed for the 1939 NY Worlds Fair.  This was the period of art-deco and both the ball and the triangular shape were popular at the time. So my guess is it was a coincidence.
