Engine Decals
« on: February 22, 2009, 10:31:35 PM »
I'm only going by memory here so bear with me.  I am under the impression that the original engine decals that went on the air cleaner tops circa 1960's and early 1970's, that had the engine cid, turbo fire for small blocks, turbo jet for big blocks, and the horsepower, had the adhesive on the back of a thin piece of cardboard something like the thickness of one side of a manila folder.  On the top of the cardboard was a silver foil with the info in red.   Does this sound correct?  It seems all new repos are just mylar with the lettering on the top and adhesive on the back but no cardboard in between.  Does anyone know where I might be able to get an original decal or a repo one with the thin cardboard in between?  I need one for a 1969 Z/28.  Thank you.

Your memory is correct. I was involved with a local Chevy dealer who started a side business furnishing Camaro parts to the locals. I recall an order form for Prentiss[?] Products in Indiana listing every air cleaner decal ever used by Chevy. They had to be purchased in quantity 20 of each or so. They were of much heavier construction than the stuff offered today.

Does anybody offer a complete set of engine and underhood decals as a package? Trying to figure out what all the decals are and where they go takes some research.
