    The Clipper emblem is hard to find. I looked for 10 years before finding it this year at York, for $20! The insert on my wagon is rare as hen's teeth. The one I got from Joe is the only nice one I have ever seen.

    As for your script, I have found some decent ones in junk yards. Have to take your time in taking them off.
    As for the plastic emblems.....I sold my "only" 57 probably 5 years ago. Chip has it on his wagon. As for the 58's I have three nos tucked away.
    Might be willing to sell one if I knew it was going on a car. The last one I sold went for big dollars on ebay three or four years ago.

    To: StudeDave57,-----If You are willing to part company with ANY of that 'rare stuff' (which apparently You ARE willing to do) You automatically go to #1 on the CLASS GUY meter! (I know more people that
    won't part with ANYTHING whether they're ever going to use it or not.)

    If that's what you wanna think- go for it.
    Folks who pay attention know that I don't need to be urged.
    Just ask Carl (for one) if he agrees with me.

    Nope- 'class' is commenting on that which you know NOTHING about.

    I went out and looked. Found a '58 "Packard" script and one for a Constellation, but no '57 "Clipper" I may well have one - just not in that place.

    I have afreind who restored a rare 1920s Laird biplane. Since he's a retired dentist he made his own casting for hard to find items like correct wingtip light houisings and lenes.

    Now he's building a correct replica of a Sopwith Pup WWI fighter...complete with a WWI French rotary (the cylinders spin...not a Wankel) engine.

    So getting new pieces shouldn't be impossible. Might be pricey to have chromed, but not impossible to get.

    Let's not forget~ that plastic piece is different between '57 and '58.
    And on both years- it's only used on wagons.


    But we're not talking about those- we're talking about that 'Clipper' name plate.
    A '58 does NOT have one. They were only on '57s.

    1958 is probably the same but earlier years are different. Based on the small production numbers there just aren't many available.
