1930 radiator emblem

Recommended Posts

I just picked up this emblem for my 1930 series 66. The enamel is missing from the oval. When I look at online pictures some look purple and others appear blue. Does anyone know the correct color?

I  would also say its purple

It looks like it was clear coated or what ever they did back in the day.

Are those pictures  good enough ?

 I went to the barn and its cold here and the lights didnt want to come on  . So  i tried a couple shots and the camera battery went dead.

 Do you have any pictures of your  car? Would like to see it.

The pictures were just what I was looking for.  I had the same problem tonight trying to get some pictures of my 1936 Buick for someone.  It was so cold in the garage that the lights were not cooperating.  I have a website with some pictures but when I tried to go to it tonight it appears they have stopped hosting it.  But here's a link to some pictures of the Chrysler. https://webmailbyui-my.sharepoint.com/:f:/g/personal/groselle_byui_edu/Es5qbj_UDkREskr47Yb404IBR0h8ffPLoU7kRGxvQ6QAIg?e=xuklj7

 

I rescued it from teenage and homeless vandals on my father-in-laws back 40.  It needs a lot of work but I have most of the bits and pieces.  The exception being the radiator and shell and headlight reflectors which seem to have been stolen at some point. I've managed to get a 1929 Dodge radiator that is very close and a 1930 77 radiator shell.  I just picked up the emblem the other day on eBay. The Chrysler will have to wait until a few other projects are further along, but I try to keep an eye for needed parts.

 

Let me know if the link doesn't work.

If you ever run across a 1930 66 radiator or shell let me know.  I'd also be interested in the headlight reflectors.  I've got the buckets and lenses but not the internals.

 

I also updated my website to a new host and domain if you want to see my Buick and a few other projects.  www.1936buick.com

I would consider sending it out

to get done.  I sent mine to Karla Maxwell in California.  She did a great job!

Emblemagic.com    Don't know if they are still restoring yet or not. They should be able to help or maybe have a restored one for sale...
