Old General Motors Plates that I had painted at a local body shop to match my Super Service. These are sharp and fit almost anywhere.
Great addition.
Asking $500.

Does anyone know how these were used or a picture showing them in use?
Thanks.

I was told they are name plates for a GM railroad locomotive. No proof. Don't have a photo.

Ive seen these mounted to the radiator housings on the GM stationary engines, Most of these that i've seen have been old sawmill powerplants. We have one on the 1950's sawmill at the museum where i work, but its painted on in the same font just like the ones in the pictures above.
