  • SDC grill badge question...

    Got this from another forum member and I am curious about its history.

    Does anyone know when these were available and from who?

    It weighs about four ounces, is 3.5 inches across the red banner. Clearly had two nuts attached to the back at some point, and looks like it was on a grill by what was left.

    Thanks ahead.

    I remember seeing some of those years ago. I never bought one because my 52 Champion did not have a good place for it.

      They were available from the club. You see them occasionally on eBay. I would like to see a history of all the SDC merchandise like this. At one point there were license plate like items as well. Seems like a good article for Fred Fox.

        Yes I believe they were a 1970's thing. I have one that is better quality with more Chrome, and has the Tab to bolt it to a License Plate.

          I have one like that and would guess that I bought it in the early 80s. Pretty sure it was advertised in TW.

            Dan Webber of Maryland had them made. They were sold by both the club and by him. Still have one on the grille of my 64 Daytona.

              Speaking of old SDC items...here is one not too many have. It is cast brass, chrome plated with enameled lettering. Done by Bill “BondoBilly” Glass in the mid 2000s. When Bill stopped managing the SDC Store I think his remaining inventory went to Studebaker International but not possitive.

                  I have one of those badges on the grill of my '65 Cruiser. I believe I got it at the York swap meet many years ago.
