They are made by Scott Drake (owned by Holley now) and also ACSCO Manufacturing who produced them for Shelby. Welcome to Emblem & badge Acsco

Originals are also made with same vendor/molds, meaning in the period. Casting marks on the rear are easy to spot.

I tried to look at ACSCO's gallery and got this: "Adobe Flash Player is no longer supported"

Their website needs updating.

Occasionally you can get lucky 🍀

What a Great Story about Tom. I have been fortunate enough to know him though vintage racing. And he is a truly laid-back guy, I doubt his blood pressure go's up while racing The one last shot (pictures @ 9:09 and 9:14) there was Mark's 68 TransAm Camaro, which he let me sit in, after telling him my story about the weekend I spent with Mark (68 TransAm race @ Seattle). I asked if he would like to drive my Alfa GTV in a Session, he said, "I don't get them Furr'in Cars" Cheers Tom.

Those emblems are actually made by the Keeler Brass Company (note the "KBC" on the lower left corner) and not ACSCO.

I was given a quick course on emblems by Ray Blanchard who ran R.W. Blanchard, one of the die-cast suppliers to Ford and Chrysler. Ray explained that most all parts have a "caster's I.D." on them. His parts had "RWB" on them. RWB supplied Ford a lot of 60's-70" pieces as well as many of the CryCo muscle cars pieces. He also told me that he ignored the tooling destruction orders and had many of the dies in his garage.

Another common supplier is "Tri Delta Casting" who used a rounded end triangle with "TDC" inside it.
