Hi all..
Does anyone know a source for a stainless steel hood emblem for a 46 Fleetline? I haven't had much luck searching in my area. A link below is for the decals to show what it looks like.

Any condition... Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Unless they were different in Canada, the emblems are not stainless steel, they are pot metal. The do show up on eBay from time to time. Finding a used one without pits can be difficult. A reputable chrome shop should be able to repair the pits before chroming. I did see a video of pit repair a few years ago. Each pit was drilled out and the void filled with solder, smoothed and then chromed.

I'm afraid parts for '42 & '46 are pretty scarce.
Good luck.

Thanks. I assumed it was stainless since the trim was but now that I think of it stainless would be extremely hard to make an emblem of that size.

I noticed they are pretty difficult to find. I had a 47 parts car so I have that one I could use but I really would like to use the correct year. Besides it's cooler!

I've owned my '46 since 1973 and have bought and sold many parts for it. I think I may have one or two hood emblems. I'll try to look this weekend and PM you.
