We have discussed the medallion issue more then once but my question would be ...Right or wrong should we not be able to use the original parts book as solid documentation??

As we have also discussed.In the Chevrolet Pictorial history 1940-1954 there is a pic of a dealer grand opening "1948" ,there is an Aero Sedan in front with a trunk medallion

Yes, I looked at that picture today.
If it were me and my car didnn't have the emblem I would use the engineering for documentation and back it up with the restoration pac.

Russ,
Does your 1948 Fleetline have the Bow Tie shield above the Chevrolet script on the trunk?

Hey Bruce,

I had a top team of forensic experts examine the picture of the "Grand Opening" in 1948 on page 138. Here is their finding.

Look very, very closely at the reflection in the window of the showroom. Just above the radio antenna on the car, the Aero out side, that is in question. You can make out the reflection of the grill of that car. Notice, there is no "T" bar. Thus I believe we can conclude that is a 1947. Also, notice the people standing inside the showroom up against the glass would be blocking any car inside the showroom. Note the curve of the store front. That accounts for the "off-set" of the reflection.

What do you think?? bana2

Also it has the narrow 1947 belt moulding.
The 1948 had the top color the wheel color but it looks as if that car the white wall trim rings so you can tell for sure.

I got home and sure enough I can see the reflection with NO T-bar

Hi Gene,
No sir! I believe, as your documentation, and mine, that item ended in '47. dance
