Information on Dodge name plate


Recommended Posts

My 29 DB truck has a name plate located on rear cross member.

Is this plate the same as the plates that were on later model truck hoods?

If some has a decent photo I could have a new one made.

yes, although I am not sure which font is correct. Did they use the same font as the Graham Brothers trucks or is the artist illustration correct?  

 

measurement is 16" x 2 1/16" on mine with four corner rivets and one center rivet

mine is so rusted I can't make out the letters though...

Thanks to you all.

I believe the artist is correct. Graham had the more fancy font. 
I will fix the “D” and place a  border as shown.

Interesting discovery that my frame has two different location for center rivet.

Either plate would match, depending on the space between words. Dodge has less letters than Graham.

Sherman, I agree with Tom... I think the letters should all be the same size as in the artist illustration I posted above of the rear of a F30 model. 


I'll buy one if your going to start producing them. Let me know your price.

Just my 2 cents, to me, the "R"'s seems off....would love to have one hanging in my shop.

I have a couple old sets, not very pristine but probably work for wall hangers.

Here is an exact reproduction of the one that was on my K47 2 ton.

These side hood plates are quite different then the end of frame plate. The fonts are similar but the “R” is different ton frame plate.

Sorry, I wasn't paying enough attention. Yes mine are hood side plates.
