    I'm looking for a Pembina Dodge or Pembina Chrysler trunk lid emblem for my 72 Dart Swinger 340 Special that was originally purchased from Pembina Dodge. Now I'm not sure if Pembina Dodge had the same kind of cast emblems (or even had such an emblem) that Crosstown Chrysler in Edmonton put on their cars in 72 but if any of the Manitoba members or anyone else ever seen such an emblem I'd be very interested to know and even more interest to get my hands on one. Thanks

    Good luck with the emblem hunt. Thanks to you and Greg my trunk lid will look more complete with Crosstown and Dodge emblems.

    Yes, Pembina Dodge used metal emblems in the 70's. Haven't seen one in a while, but I will keep my eyes open. The best chance will be on the Labor Day weekend. There's a Mopar only car show & swap meet here in Winnipeg.

    Thanks for the confirmation, any help would be much appreciated, it would be near impossible to find one out here in Alberta. I'll take your advise and post on the Manitoba Mopar site. Thanks again.

    Have you found one yet? Saturday there's a swap meet just outside Winnipeg. If you're still interested I could try & get you one then.

    Thanks for remembering me Vic, in fact I am still looking for that nameplate. If you could keep your eyes peeled I would really appreciate it. Not to sound a little greedy, FABO member j061093409 , in Connecticut, has the only other Dart Special from Pembina Dodge and is in the middle of it's restoration, so if two of these dealer nameplates showed up we would be doubly grateful.

    Thanks Dan

    I would love to get my hands on one of these factory '71 or '72 Dart 340 Swingers.
    Cool and rare.
    It doesn't get much better than that!

    My cousin bought a 1966 Dodge Polara 500 from Canada, sweet rare car, it has a Plymouth Fury Dash in it among many other unique Canadian features the USA cars did not have....its from Crosstown too!!!! Next time I see the car I should snap a picture of the dealer emblem on the trunk, its very cool :glasses7:

    Here you go then Dartnut from last Sunday at the MoparAction Event at Castrol Raceway on Sunday, the only 3 completely restored Specials that I know of, unfortunately mine wasn't one of them. The Purple one on the left won best of show.

    I'm 95% sure that Pembina Dodge use foil stickers...Century,Eastern,Midway had cast dealer plates.
    Pembina was a small dealer back then and if they had cast plates they would have been on top of the line cars only.
    I did Dave M's 70 Swinger in the early 80's and it had a foil dealer plate..it came out of Pembina...

    Thanks for the information Rob, your most likely correct, maybe another member could confirm and then I'll abandon my search. My hope is maybe because these were special order cars they got a bit more attention, much appreciated!

    I can't confirm or refute what Rob said. I did go to the swap meet on Saturday. The weather was questionable & attendance was marginal. Fortunately the Mopar show & shine is on Labour Day & I'll have better luck then. I'll also look to see what if any emblems or stickers are on the back of cars there.

    Wouldn't it be easy to tell if they used a pot metal emblem or sticker? Weren't all those old dealership emblems held in place with pins and clips? Just like the factory emblems on the car. If so there should be a sign of holes being drilled in the deck lid (if anyone has an original on there car)

    I've had a few parts cars over the years that had dealership emblems that were held in place just like the factory emblems (I've never seen a crosstown or pembina one tho) was double sided tape even around in the early seventies?

    Like Rob said, Pembina Dodge used both tinfoil stickers & cast emblems.

    Danny, Part of it is the same. On the badge on my dart in the centre of the o's there is a tiny pentastar.

    :sad1:Today we held our annual Labour day Mopar only car show. I talked to several people & the concensus is that noone seems to know what's correct. Not 1 of the cars at the show had a Pembina Dodge emblem. Same luck with the vendors. Last chance this year is next weekend at Winnipeg's biggest car show. [over 800 cars]:thumbup:
