1959/60 Air Cleaner decal
« on: December 10, 2021, 01:03:09 PM »
Could anyone send me a detailed picture of the original decal/stamp that's on the black air cleaner of a standard engine?

The new stickers that are sold on-line have a different Font than they used back in 59.
I will create a new stamp and it needs to be exact   8)
thanks

Stephan

Stephan:

If your able to find the correct stamp, please let me know because I'm restoring my 59.

Thanks,

I may be wrong, but I don't recall ever seeing a decal on the air cleaner housing of a '59, unless it is the Q-code Eldorado engine that you are working on. The single 4bbl just had a raised word on it that said, 'FRONT'.
Current:
1976 Eldorado Convertible in Crystal Blue FireMist with white interior and top.
1969 Fleetwood Brougham in Chalice Gold FireMist with matching interior and top.

Past and much missed:
1977 Brougham de Elegance
1976 Eldorado Convertible
1972 Fleetwood Brougham
1971 Sedan de Ville
1970 de Ville Convertible
1969 Sedan de Ville
1959 Sedan deVille

My untouched’60 has a decal. But it’s packed away. I’ll try to get a picture.

Got to use the proper terminology, there's decals - which are transfers, and stickers - which are adhesive backed.
More reason to get the '59 authenticity manual kick started, CLC.
I was able to refer to the '57-58 manual for this.

If there's no sticker on the top there maybe a decal for the AC Delco filter element on the side.   The '58 had one, and I got it from a decal guy, but can't seem to locate his info at the moment.   Search online that's how I found it, if he's still in business.   There are several vendors and the data is not always correct.   They're selling them, not guaranteeing authenticity/correctness.
Some of the other brands had much more pronounced badging on the air cleaners.   eg; I have a '50s Olds air cleaner for a stock 4 bbl and it has the rocket 88 logo on a foil sticker.   I don't recall there being one for the stock 390 but my batting average has been declining with age.
