Hood emblem wanted for 1952 F1; could trade 1951 emblem

Hi,

I have a mostly original F1 and am looking for an original trim part for the lower front of the hood. When I was a kid, my dad had our local body guy fit a '51 trim piece in place of the missing part, and I'd like to find the correct one.

Is this part being reproduced? I've done a quick check online and can't seem to locate a new one. I've found the V-8 emblem for the center, but not the whole part.

I'll trade straight-up for the '51 emblem, for a nice '52. I'll get a photo of the '51 for those who may be interested. I can't part with the one I have until I replace it, so please don't expect me to sell it outright just yet.

Thanks,

Dan
Dayton, Oh

Dan,
Just to clarify, you're looking for the whole nose piece with two holes instead of three?

If you don't come up with one closer to Dayton, keep me in mind. I have one on a parts truck that is in good shape. Its painted and has a 6 cylinder emblem on it but as near as I can tell it's the same as the V8 variety. Bolt holes appear to be the same.

I'm in nw Montana.

Yes, you worded it well. I have the 3 holer and want the 2 holer. Does the emblem in the middle come out? In my search for a repro part, I found the V-8 center emblem available.

I posted a photo of what I have currently in my gallery.

Please PM a price to me and I'll keep it in mind as an option. I think the repro emblem was $60.

The center emblem looks like it bolts on.

You can check my gallery for a picture - The one i'd pull is on the 52 F6 with the plow. it's not a great shot of the nose piece, but I'll try to get a better picture tomorrow afternoon.

I'm easy - I'd trade or whatever.
