This real D500 wagon has the 1959-only Air Suspension system.

This was inspected in L.A. in 1990; it is in living in Sweden, now.

This is on my 58 Dodge Convertible, but according to Chrysler Historical, the car was sold new in Washington state, not in North Dakota. Used car dealer in ND probably.

My car shows no sign of ever having a chrome dealer name installed, but I finally found a photo of the dealership where it was sold new.
Holt Motor Co., 5230 Van Nuys Blvd., Van Nuys; Calif. Too early a photo for any FL cars though.

Matt, your nameplate looks like it's being held on, with screws (that are rusting); that would be consistent with
a used car lot's quickie effort to advertise the car.

You guys should also type the dealership name in your posts. That way, you (or anyone else) can Google search the dealership and see the image you've posted.

My 1957 Plymouth 2dr Suburban was delivered to Billingsley Motors in Portland OR. My 1957 Chrysler New Yorker coupe was delivered to Reinauer Bros Motor Co. in Oklahoma City OK. Neither car had a dealer tag of any kind on it.

If anyone has a car sold at Vandergriff or Emil Vandergriff motors, those are my people! Vandergriff Chevrolet is and was a big name in the Arlington area. Emil Vandergriff Motors is less well known, probably because they dealt in Studebakers, Packards, and Nashes.

Much like the word "Deer", I believe the plural form of "Nash" is still "Nash".

Unless, of course, it is like Goose/Geese, Tooth/Teeth, Booth/Beeth ? Noosh ?

I guess another alternative would be "Nashi", as the plural of Fungus is Fungi.

I've always seen a similarity between fungi and Nash design.

Does anyone know how the dealership had these scripts made? Some are more elaborate then others. Reflection of the times... They were once artfully made of shiney metal, now they are a vinyl sticker.

Hola All

Here in Colo Spgs there was Marksheffel Motors ( Built and Owned by Albert W. Marksheffel ). Their vehicles were "High End", but they would
accept just about anything for "A Trade In". I have a Name Plate that came from a 1962 Imperial "Crown" ( http://www.imperialclub.com/Yr/1962/index.htm ) and I know of a 1957 Plymouth Savoy ( 4 dr Sedan ) that has the same Dealer's Name Plate.

I remember Freed Bros. in Chonchy. Less than 15 miles from me.
Wished mine had one. I tracked the owners of my1960 Plymouth back to 1962[probably the 2nd owner] but can't find where she was originally sold.

Karl (and everyone else) , if you go buy a copy of your car's IBM Build Card, there is a reasonable chance that the Historical
Society can decypher your car's Dealer coding and tell you where it was originally sold.

Dealer promo "merchandising" is still done in the form of license plate frames and lot promotional
banners, etc. Not sure if one could still have the potmetal tags made up, but I have seen newer
examples on fairly late model cars.

Gerry Scram provided this:

Dad sold cars for his brother, this nameplate was used from 55-58. Because may dad sold cars I was fortunate enough to ride in new 57 Dodge convets gold & white with signal seeking radio. See a new white & maroon 57 Desoto FireFlite. We rode to school in a 57 D500 with Hi Way Hi Fi record player listening to Johnny Horton's ballads. I remember new 56 D500s one passed down to a customer's son for drag racing with lots of trophys on the hood. Dad & his brother were in their 40's so they were younger thinking autos they sold that, & being blessed by a sleepy Ford dealer.
Of course there were new & amazing models new Sweptwing Dodges & Suddenly it's 1960 Plmouths, as well as pretty 56 3 tones. The guys stocked spring color 58s, a Regal Lancer & Silver Special Plym, 56 Golden Rod D500, 57 new body Power Wagon & Sweptside finned pickups. My cousin , a little older than me got to drive a 58 dark blue Belv convert one summer how cool.

Some things to watch out for in Chrysler Corp. dealer names in the 1950's.
My 58 Imperial was sold originally at Haggarty Motors in Great Falls, Montana. The Chrysler Historic IBM card shows Great Falls Motors. These are the same business. The "incorporated" name of the dealer was Great Falls, and that is what Chrysler will show on their records. The "DBA" (Doing Business As) name was Haggarty. Sometimes, the Monroney Label (post 58 cars) will show both the legal and DBA names. Also, in some parts of the country, distributors still were the "main" dealers, and were the sale of record for Chrysler. These are typically a big city dealer, who established "sub" dealers in their territory. So, don't toss that name plate without some research if it does not match the Chrysler Historical IBM card.
In any event, I can see the "ghost" of the original dealer nameplate on my Imperial, but it disappeared over the years. Rats!

Distributors had a contract with Chrysler (or whatever manufacturer it may be) to recruit and maintain dealers in a set geological area. Manitoba and North-West Ontario was one of the areas in Canada, for example. The idea came about in the early days of the auto industry. The distributors used their money to build up a dealer network as well as build a warehouse and stock parts for the dealers. Some well known distributors were Waters for Plymouth-DeSoto in San Francisco, Earl Anthony for Packard in California and Dominion Motors for Ford in Western Canada. Grew up in Manitoba where Breen Motors was the Dodge-DeSoto distributor and Breen Bros. the Plymouth-Chrysler distributor.

The dealers recruited by the distributor dealt with the distributor for parts and ordering cars as their contracts were with the distributor and not the manufacturer. Thus distributors ordered the cars for the dealers and the distributors names appeared on Chrysler Corporation build records.

One big drawback - manufacturers could, and did, raid competitors distributors. Ford raided its competitors in the 1950s when recruiting dealers for the upcoming Edsel, which is how many Packard dealers landed up selling Edsels. Ford was able to get a few Packard distributors to switch to Ford, and thus the distributor and all their dealers dropped Packard for Edsel. The last real Packards came off the line in June, 1956, and the new ones were Studebakers spiffed up to look like Packards. Many dealers had lost customers along with the disappearance of the real Packard and selling Ford Motor Companys new Edsel sounded like a good idea.

Chrysler eased out of the distributor set up in the 1950s and 1960s. And that was also the reason Chrysler built parts warehouses across the United States and Canada - to replace the parts warehouses run by the distributors.

Here are a few. My dad's car (1956 Fireflite) is originally from Stephen's Motors, Phoenix, AZ. This summer, we also saw a white/pink '56 Firedome from the same dealer at the WPC/DeSoto Club meet. The tag on the red car is from the 1958 Firesweep convertible that was also at the meet. I believe if I remember correctly the tag is not original to the car. The Pink '55 has a tag and plate frame from ABC Motors, Minneapolis, MN. This is the same dealer my uncle's '58 Adventurer was sold new at.

Please let me know if you have any memorabilia/frames/emblems with Stephen's Motors or ABC Motors.

Is it just me or does that bug anyone else. I am giving money for a vehicle, if you want me to advertise for you, give me the car for free. I have had a lot of people ask me to put the company name on our alternators, and I don’t understand it and will not do it. I don’t like going to car shows and seeing a very nice engine compartment lessened by a huge p.o.s.master sticker on the alternator.

I understand completely how you feel RushPS - that's how i'd feel buying a new car. When the car is a 60 year old survivor the dealer emblem takes on a whole different aspect, it's become part of the history of the car. In the same way I would not add one to my car if it didn't have one, I'd think twice about taking it off if one was on it. Same with license plate frames. When I buy a new car it's the first thing I take off. But on my classics they are part of the cars history and I think they are fine.

I judge that more on the obnoxious factor. A discreet tag showing who rebuilt the generator
of the dealer tag is perfectly fine and tells the history without being a #@! hot pink billboard that
distracts from the vehicle. I LOVE old chrome dealer tags as part of that old school "scene" that
died out after the 50's, so it is just an added bonus.

The stuff that gives me tunabutt is the generic license plate surrounds or window stickers/headers
that say "CHEVELLE" or one of the contrived quips about Fords eating Chevys, or the Bowtie. Really ?
I could never figure out that common-as-a-bellybutton car was a CHEVELLE ! Thanks for pandering
to the idiots of the world.

As a funny twist on this, my brother likes to play stupid with people when they see his 61 Polara.

What kind of car is it ?

I don't know. I think it's a Vermillion, but I'm not sure. I was hoping you could tell me !

Fireflite56 - 2014-03-26 2:23 PM

Here are a few. My dad's car (1956 Fireflite) is originally from Stephen's Motors, Phoenix, AZ. This summer, we also saw a white/pink '56 Firedome from the same dealer at the WPC/DeSoto Club meet. The tag on the red car is from the 1958 Firesweep convertible that was also at the meet. I believe if I remember correctly the tag is not original to the car. The Pink '55 has a tag and plate frame from ABC Motors, Minneapolis, MN. This is the same dealer my uncle's '58 Adventurer was sold new at.

Please let me know if you have any memorabilia/frames/emblems with Stephen's Motors or ABC Motors.

..Not to mention that a lot of these nameplates are for/from long-defunct dealerships.

It's almost like giving a "family" last-name to the car....which it is; that (the name-) is from where the car was issued.

good point, i was going to put that on my CHEVELLE!!! but i will go with the generic one that says doc is walking advertisement for birth control, now come up with something meaningless and boring like calling me Mr. Fantasy. As near as I can tell you are not happy unless you are in a fight with someone in a post. And you car is a fem color, so pox off.

Cmangeot - 2014-01-20 5:47 PM 60 Windsor. Ryan - Green Bay

House of Ryan was a well known Chrysler Dodge Jeep dealer in Green Bay; I knew it well having lived in the area for some years back in the 1970s. Apparently it has closed now though whether from being bought up by one of the mega-dealers or just simply closing I do not know. There is a new name associated with the dealership location and that is Gandrud. It still sells DOdges, Chrylers, and Jeeps though.

My old dodge had a plate, but its not a name plate, It would have to be one of the ugliest V8 badges I have seen

I will keep it as part of the car, but it wont go back on while I own it

Mick, it looks like that "V/8" thing is covering up a dealership nameplate.

Was there any way, after you to removed that thing, to read the shadow image of what it was partially covering?

How was that thing secured to the trunk; glue?

Nothing under it but rust Neil and it is pinned, the black plate part is pressed aluminium with 1/4" alloy bolts spot welded (?) to the back to hold it on and the "V8" bit is cast with 3 pins on it, held to the plate with those horrible internal star washer things.

The holes in the trunk frame matched the size and general look of how the factory ones were done, but really, I have no idea where it came from or when it was fitted.

I have not seen another

=================================================

Send your $45 and paperwork to CHS and they can *usually* tell you what dealer they sent
the car to. This may not be the dealer that sold your car, as there are a few complications that
occasionally pop up, such as trades, regional distributor dealerships passing cars on to smaller
satellite dealers, etc., but most times it is pretty accurate.

Jeff, the former owner of my car, found it and was nice enough to send it to me. Since it's in such a nice shape, I'll put it back on its original location under the trunk of my car.

This was on the Saratoga when I bought it.
Not the original dealer, which was Holt Motor Company in Van Nuys, so I'm not sure how old this one, Keyes Motors in Van Nuys is.
Keyes Motors was established in 1952 and is still extant. http://www.keyescars.com/ I'm going to send them an Email and see if they know
what era the frame is from.
I have both of the black plates, this one is from the front, the rear one is in better shape but the decal area is scraped up.

Does anyone have either a dealer emblem or a license plate frame for Massey Motors in Jacksonville, FL or for any Massey dealership. Massey dealerships were all throughout Florida, usually with another name, such as 'Massey-Mingledorf', or 'Massey-Yardley', or 'Massey-Mixon', and so on.

Here is mine. Doering Dodge in Greenfield Ave., Milwuakee WI. As you can see my dealer script is no longer attached to the car. I had it removed when I repainted the car many years ago (foolishly). I can not recall where it was/should be mounted. Does it go on the trunk lid or below the lid on the lower half of the rear?

Start thinking like a dealer where am I most likely to not have this nameplate damaged or taken off?

These are cool.

Funny I have only seen them on the Mopar's but not any other make ....

That is because you were not interested in acquiring one ! Once that happens, all you will

I found an old photo of my car that shows the original location of the dealer tag! Which leads to a question. The original location of the dealer tag on my 1956 Dodge was the left side of the trunk lid. The right side has the "dodge" script. I took a look at the back of the trunk last night and see no way of getting to the back of the script pins due to structure panels on the back of the lid. How was this done? Did they have some sort of expanding pin thing (kind of like a dry wall anchor)? Any help / opinions appreciated.

Also, I found this online. A photo of the Gillespie Bloomer Motors Dealership in Madison, Wisconsin. I believe I have another photo of this dealership in my archive at home as well. I will look tonight and post it if I do.

Wow, Greg; glad you can see your dealer nameplate's location in that photo.

The dealership's service department wouldn't have spent a lot of time precisely locating that nameplate; just wanted to make sure
that it was put on straight.

There are female push-in clips that will hold the nameplate to the trunk.

You want a gutenteit fit of that clip into the trunk, but the nameplate probably should have a loose fit into the clip.

You can apply some super-glue (or, maybe flexible 'weatherstrip' glue) to the nameplate's fingers, so that it will stick into the clip, but not so much
that the nameplate couldn't be pried away/off of the clips, should you or some other owner need to remove it, for repairs and/or re-painting, in the future.

Also, if the nameplate is only 'finger' tight to the clips, you'll be able to remove it, easily, for trunk polishing, without getting all
of that excess polish lying onto the sides of the nameplate, and in the crevices around the nameplate, on the trunk.

Or at any automotive parts 'house'.

Just take along the nameplate to ensure a good, but loosey-goosey fit to those push-in mounting clips.

Man; it is a SMALL MoPar world; never realized that this was you and your car.

Photo taken a couple years ago, huh?

Lads --
I don't have a nameplate on the Big-Tailed Beast, but in the latest "MOPAR Action" mag (October 2014) there is a photo of the dealer, Bill Goodrow (who sold it to the original owner on February 23, 1960) receiving an award from the Chrysler Corp. (for what I have no idea). Goodrow did sponsor a '60 ram Plymouth in a few Colorado drag races back in "them der days."

As some of you can likely tell, the dealership nameplate on my car is a big FAKE. Blush.

I was very envious of the FL members who had REALLLY NIFTY FL nameplates, like the ones in the photos below for example.

And seeing how I couldn't charm any of them into selling me their nifty nameplates (dangitalltoheck, but I don't blame them!), I decided to make my own.

I really like that "Oak Park" one best.

So I found the "Big O" nameplate on Ebay, attached it to a Flookerang from an old FL truck, had the whole mess chromed...and voila...big FAKE FL nameplate.

The "Big O" dealership in South Carolina still exists (at least it did the last time I checked)...a Mopar dealership that opened in the 1970's, if memory serves.

Ah well...I tried.

On my '55 Dodge, Massey Motors went out in the late 70's.

(It's not a nameplate, but Massey didn't use nameplates.)

Old thread, but I just found my old nameplate. It's kind of cool that, in a small way, it's tied to Ms Belvedere - Parrish & Clark, Tulsa, OK which was one of the dealers involved!

Sites Bros. DeSoto was in Kansas City, MO and closed its doors in 1958. This is on the '57 Adventurer we are doing a partial restoration (almost done) at Smitty's Classic Cars in Branson, MO. The owner lives in California and the car was bought new by his great grandfather.

Hickory Motor Sales in Hickory, NC, was a Plymouth/Dodge dealer when my car was sold there new in 1959. They used a frame rather than an emblem.

What about these personal nameplates. Most likely made by local trophy shops.
THIS CAR WAS SPECIALLY BUILT FOR
This one came off a loaded 61 ply. It was located on the glove box.

My Windsor was ordered and sold by "Seattle Automobile Inc." in 1957 and I have not been able to find any information what happened to this dealership. It was probably not a big business in late 50s I guess.

I just picked up a Seattle Auto frame I didn't have. I didn't know the history on the dealer so thanks.


Seattle Automobile Co. was one of the oldest automobile dealers in Seattle, it began business in the early 20th century, probably in 1910's. It was known earlier exclusively as a Packard dealer and I remember one of their former buildings is still known as historical "Seattle Automobile Building". I do not have any information when they started as Chrysler-Plymouth dealer and why their business got smaller after the glory days of first half of the century.The family who bought my Chrysler as new remembers it was a small dealership at that time and the car was delivered late to the dealer and that it was a bargain because of the '58 models coming soon. Some car guys from Seattle who had been around in 60s and 70s had no memories at all of a Chrysler dealer by that name. I have no information when they have gone out of business but last bit of history I've found was company's owner's obituary from mid-1960s.

I actually made an repro version of my frame so it matches better with the restoration result :D The one in the pic above is the original.

Canadian cars came with slight trim variations, this is one of them for 57. 57 Plodge came with some Canada only bits also. they put the manufacturer on the backs since it was no where.

Canadian Chrysler had better documentation and thought stuff out more I believe because they had a chance to fix errors as it was handed down. Their manuals are much better than US stuff. Good luck finding one, those seem like unobatanium…

Chrysler Canada put the name on the rear of the 1957 Plymouth (P30, P31) and 1957 Dodge (D64, D65) as the public would not be able to tell them apart from the rear. Yes, the rear deck lid lift had stylized sails on the Plymouth while Dodge had a warrior's head, but they were not very big. Thus the nice nameplates -

Plymouth, part number 1696 702
Dodge, part number 1757 180

Neither number appears in the U.S. 1957 parts catalogue - only the Canadian.

Yes, I actually have the Canadian parts catalogues (they were published annually) from 1949 to 1968. Plus some scattered years before WW II and in the 1970's.
