  • Of horn bottons and emblems

    I have a bunch of horn buttons and other scrips stuck to the shop wall for inspiration. A few are Stude items, but a lot are GM stuff. These are from back when this area had a few abandoned junk yards in it. All are gone now.



    Anyway, one emblem was actually given to me. I have had to for 20 years but have NO idea what it came from ! See the "heavy duty" below here:



    Anybody recognize this and can identify it's origin? Seems like it might be dash trim from something. Heck, maybe it's not even from a vehicle, but I have always assumed it was.

    No guesses yet??

    I was hoping someone would recognize this from grandpas old dump truck. Or irrigation pump, or Saturn rocket or something.
    I think it's cool, whatever it came from.

      Well, based on the outline shape of it, I think it may be from some 60s era Ford truck. That shield shape reminds me of a '65-'66 Galaxie trunk emblem. Could be (and likely) completely wrong tho.

        My brother had that same HD emblem on a 61 Ford 3/4 ton flat-bed.

          Yup - Ford Truck! I think I have one or two of those.

          No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            P.S. Fortunately with eBay, many are finding their way back to their rightful places on vehicles.

              Cool! I knew the collective experience of this group would figure it out. In college I had this emblem stuck to my yamaha stero amp. Someday it'll probably find its way on to something else too.

                We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                Ayn Rand:
                "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."
