Weird Piece of Trim I Found? Sign In

This I did some research on, and it could be a take on the crest of richard the lionheart (which would put the piece at pre-1949), or its the insignia of the english cricket team. Or something? Anyone have any ideas? Its set in what looks a little bit like a cadillac wreath but I have no clue. The wreath part and the round metal piece the rest of it is set in is all one metal piece. How strange...



Here's the cricket team insignia:

That came off a Ford Torino's grill.

The Ford Torino is an intermediate automobile produced by the Ford Motor Company for the North American market between 1968 and 1976. The car was named after the city of Turin (Torino, in Italian). The Torino was initially an upscale version of the intermediate sized Ford Fairlane, which Ford produced between 1962 and 1970. After 1968, the Fairlane name was retained for the base models with lower levels of trim than those models which wore the Torino name. During this time, the Torino was considered a subseries to the Fairlane. By 1970 Torino had become the primary name for Ford's intermediate, and the Fairlane was now a subseries of the Torino. In 1971 the Fairlane name was dropped altogether and all Ford intermediates were called Torino. This name was one of several originally proposed for the Mustang while in development. The Torino was essentially a twin to the Mercury Montego line.

Most Torinos were conventional cars, and generally the most popular models were the 4-door sedans and 2-door hardtops. However, Ford produced some high-performance versions of the Torino by fitting them with large powerful engines, such as the 428 cu in (7.0 L) and 429 cu in (7.0 L) "Cobra-Jet" engines. These cars are classified as muscle cars. Ford also chose the Torino as the base for its NASCAR entrants, and it has a successful racing heritage.

The question was answered. I don't think anyone asked for a Ford history of the car it came from,

He's just another spammer trying to come in the back door. He just copied and pasted from Wikipedia.
