    Has anyone ever reproduced the tri-shield for a 65 Skylark hood emblem? Thanks.

    Someone mentioned the repo seat belt buckle inserts can be cut and used for the hood ornament.

    Poston used to sell re-pops but they went out of business long ago. So someone must have made them. I bought 4-5 of them back then but passed them out quite awhile ago.

    I have One that I picked up at a swap meet 4-5 Years ago. It doesn't have any color left on it. I gave 30 Bux for it. It's yours for 30 if you want it.

    Original tri-shield or a repro? I would be interested if it's a faded original. Assuming Steve isn't interested, of course. Thanks!

    It's an original I'm quite sure. Two point suspension for the Tri-Shield. Some of the one's from Poston were Three point, some Two point. The later one's were Two point. They must be getting hard to find. I saw a '65 Gran Sport on E-Bay for 69+ Grand and it didn't have a hood orniment. It's an A/C Four speed car. The guy says make a reasonable initial bid. How about a reasonable initial price.

    OK, I just went and dug out the orniment. It has good color but the mounting post is broken off. Two point suspension. It looks great really. The price is still 30. I just want to help out a fellow 65 Skylark owner. I dont want to see it for sale on here in a few Months for a crazy higher price. That has happened before here where someone Really Needed a part, I send it and find it for sale again. Really pissed me off. So Steve, it's still yours if you really need it.

    Hi Ron. I had trouble finding this post. I was in the hospital last week and was unable to respond. I still have the hood ornament if you're still interested. It looks as tho it can be drilled and tapped for a small machine screw. Let me know.
